East Branch Friends of the Arts Presents

Barry Lobdell exhibit at Adirondack Artists Guild

On September 2nd, an opening reception will be held from 5-8 pm at the Adirondack Artists Guild in Saranac Lake, which will feature the work of photographer Barry Lobdell. This year represents Lobdell’s 50th as a photographic artist and 24th as a member of the Guild.

Now, 50 years beginning as a photographic artist, Lobdell has assembled an exhibition of photographs which have been taken since his introduction to the art of photography. Approximately half of the photos represent his concentration on “street photography”- candid images of people and their creations, mainly in black and white and taken during the first half of this 50-year period. The remainder of the show is made up almost exclusively of landscape images, mostly of the Adirondacks, where he has lived for the past 26 years.

He counts the works in this exhibit among his favorites and all of them are newly created, whether from original negatives and slides or digital files. The images were made with a variety of cameras, both film-based and digital. Specialized cameras among his hardware have been Hasselblad and Noblex panoramic cameras as well as a Fujifilm X100 model, which is modified for infrared shooting.

More on Barry Lobdell and his work may be found HERE.
