Life In Winter

2017-11-25 - 2018-01-21

Monroe Gallery of Photography is pleased to announce “Life In Winter,” an imaginative survey of inspiring images that reveal moments in history and the unseen and unexpected layers of our world in winter. The exhibition opens with a reception on Friday, November 25, from 5 to 7 PM. “Life In Winter” will continue through January 21, 2018.

Additionally, “ART SHAY: A TRIBUTE” has been extended through January 21, 2018. This major exhibition of photographs from one of America’s most accomplished photographer’s celebrates Art Shay’s Lucie statue for Lifetime Achievement which he received during the Lucie Awards gala ceremony at Carnegie Hall in New York October 29, 2017. The Lucie Awards is the premiere annual event honoring the greatest achievements in photography.

Concurrently, the Gallery is presenting “Tony Vaccaro At 95,” a special exhibition of photographs by Tony Vaccaro on the occasion of his 95th birthday. Tony Vaccaro played two risky roles, serving as a combat infantryman on the front lines, as well as a photographer who shot 8,000 photographs. Returning to the States in 1950, Tony started his career as a commercial photographer, eventually working for virtually every major publication: Flair, Look, Life, Venture, Harper’s Bazaar, Town and Country, Quick, Newsweek, and many more. Tony went on to become one the most sought after photographers of his day. Tony Vaccaro turns 95 on December 20, 2017.
