Picturing the West – Photography by Bob Kolbrener

Picturing the West – Photography by Bob Kolbrener

July – September, 2010

Bob Kolbrener …noted photographer of the American West …launched an exhibition of his work with a talk at Lumière, Wednesday July 14th. This is the second in the series, Picturing the West.

His subjects …from landscapes to portraits …from symbols of man encroaching on nature to humorous signage …are all carefully and thoughtfully executed.

A show with Brett Weston in Los Angeles over 35 years ago launched his work. Since then, it has been exhibited throughout the United States as well as in Austria, China, Indonesia and Japan.

With photographs in numerous private and corporate collections …including Texaco, Polaroid, Southwestern Bell and A. G. Edwards …his images are also in collections at institutions such as the Saint Louis Art Museum, the Monterey Museum of Art, the High Museum of Art and Washington University.

Kolbrener began conducting workshops with Ansel Adams at Yosemite. In the quarter of a century since, he has continued teaching at other workshop venues in addition to serving as a guest lecturer at a number of universities and museums.

“Kolbrener stands apart because his photographs have a rare technical perfection—every print is ideal and masterful in light, tone, cropping and consistency.”  –  James D. Burke, Director, Saint Louis Art Museum

On this day in 1968, American singer and songwriter Johnny Cash recorded the album Johnny Cash at Folsom Prison, in front of an audience of some 2,000 inmates at California's Folsom Prison. Shown here are two images by photographer Al Clayton. The first is a portrait of Cash taken on the set of the Johnny Cash show in Nashville and the second is an image from 1969 at the Cummins Prison in Arkansas. Prison reform was one of many humanitarian issues that Cash championed. More images by Clayton can be found on his Lumiere artist page. www.lumieregallery.net#johnnycash #alclaytonphotography #lumieregallery ... See MoreSee Less
