For the month of November, the Piermont Library is pleased to present our Art Show of the Month- Michael Garber: Piermont Vistas. An opening reception will be held on Sunday, November 6th, 3:00 – 5:00 pm. All are welcome.
From the Artist
Over the past twelve years, I have taken photographs of seasonal views of the Hudson River and environs from the Piermont Pier and the Village. Contrasting light, cloud formations, reflections and the warmth of the early morning light are among the elements that have fascinated me. As a landscape, nature, and portrait photographer, I have been intrigued by the subjectivity of light drawing me to objects as they transform in the changing light, creating dramatic scenes.
About the Artist
Michael Garber, a landscape, nature, and portrait photographer intrigued by the subjectivity of light, is drawn to objects as they are transformed in changing light. He employs light as a design element in shaping and capturing his images. Dramatic scenes attract his attention especially where color and texture add depth and intensity. He has travelled extensively to photograph diverse landscapes and birds in their unique light.
His esthetic vision has been influenced and shaped from having lived in France and Mexico and immersing himself in their cultures, as well as by a six-month journey by land through Central and South America.
Michael studied photography at the International Center for Photography (ICP) in New York City where he created compelling projects in Street Photography and Portraiture. His portraiture project photographing his
friend, Vince, continued after ICP for over five years. With a team of professionals Michael has created a draft book combining his portraits with Vince’s words of wisdom.
He is the photographer (with over 400 photographs) for the Timber Press book, titled The History of Landscape Design in 100 Gardens by Linda A. Chisholm, showcased with a lecture and book signing at the New York Botanical Garden in 2018.
