Asian-Pacific Heritage Month Photography Exhibit in Art Alcove - Bob Blome

                                   

In honor of Asian Pacific Heritage Month photographer, Bob Blome, will have an exhibit of his photographs from Asia at the Barbara Bush Library in May.

Bob is a self-taught photographer who aspires to the standards of "National Geographic" magazine. He learned techniques by observing the work of other artists, and experimenting with their approaches and his own vision of an image. One of his main influences is Impressionist art for their use of the horizon and their framing.
