Unique views of familiar structures on the UNM main campus focusing on color, light, texture, perspective and tonal range by Brooklyn based Barry Schwartz. Runs through 10/14.

Barry was born in Brooklyn, New York. His father loved photography and passed that down to Barry. Barry has always seen things differently from others, and over the years this has worked both for and against him.  Now retired from a career in Environmental Safety and Health and Security, Barry is “at home” when walking and taking photographs of shapes and shadows, and bringing out the beauty in old and everyday items, such as old buildings, old cars, small towns, salvage yards (used to be called junkyards), ranches and ranchers, and cemeteries. Barry is a member of, and the Exhibition Chair for, the Enchanted Lens Camera Club, and his images have been on six covers of the NM Bar Bulletin (for lawyers, not bartenders) as well as awarded several ribbons at the NM State Fair Photography Contest, including “Best of Show” in 2014.

The images in this exhibit present unique views of familiar structures on the UNM main campus through the use of color and variations in light, texture, perspective, and tonal range. I photograph what we see in our daily lives to bring out their unusual beauty. I especially like photographing buildings, salvage yards, ghost towns, and cemeteries. Because I believe there is much hidden beauty in everyday objects, my images are not “Photoshopped.” Instead, I use angles, colors, lighting, shapes, and shadows to find, illustrate, and preserve the beauty and ruggedness of the past and present that surround us. Half of the profits from this show will be donated to local animal humane organizations.
