Love of Light and Earth Photographs by Andres Gonzalez
Please note, this event has expired.

While his work will be on display for almost the whole month of January, join us for the 3rd Friday Reception to meet Andres and enjoy his beautiful work.
Light snacks will be served.
Born in Puerto Rico, Andres moved to New York when he was twelve.
As a teenager, Andres met photographer Robert Perkins.
He was so inspired by Perkins’ work that he immediately signed up for a photography class. He studied photography in the 1970’s at Theodore Roosevelt HS in the Bronx.
Since that time, Andres has always been immersed in the aesthetics and technical aspects of film.
Andres uses the “zone system,” invented by Ansel Adams, which allows him to be very consistent in the quality of the films shadows and highlights.
Andres says, “The expression of Art allows one to be a better human being, to appreciate your surroundings and be part of your community. It enriches your communication with others. It changes you.”
