Bob Gardner's Photography is exhibited this month in Room L-129!

Our September art exhibition in Room L-129 is a collection of Robert H. Gardner’s fine art photography named “Elevate the Ordinary”.

Bob writes about his work, “It wasn’t until my freshman year in college that someone put a name—“dyslexia”— to the years of difficulty I had with reading, writing and other left-brain skills, which I still struggle with today,” “Fortunately, a sympathetic lab teacher taught me to focus on the visual and mechanical aspects of whatever I was studying, which enabled me to function using a different perspective.
Over the years, I have come to realize that this coping mechanism has also made me a better photographer.  Rather than just looking at the image in the camera, I naturally search for other perspectives, other ways of seeing what is ordinary.  Each artist makes his or her world their own and, in doing so, takes the viewer to this higher perspective. To take us from here to somewhere else.
While I enjoyed working with traditional film, the advent of digital photography has created opportunities for me to express what I feel and see in the new world of Fine Art Photography."
