The Larchmont Public Library presents an exhibit of photography by John Lewison entitled, The Beauty of Larchmont, on display in the Oresman Gallery in the Larchmont Public Library from June 1, through June 30, 2012. Featured in the exhibit are Lewison’s photographs of local scenes in and around Larchmont. The exhibit is free and open to everyone during normal library hours.
An award-winning photographer with more than 35 years of experience, Mr. Lewison’s works include people and landscape images in both color and black & white. While many of his earlier images were created using medium format film, he now focuses exclusively on digital imaging. Mostly a self-taught (“trial and error”) photographer, Lewison started out taking portraits of students in his high school class for publication in the school’s yearbook.
He found portrait photography to be rewarding as well as challenging. In subsequent years, his preferred subjects include landscapes in Adirondack Park, NY, and seascapes locally in the marshland and Long Island Sound. Lewison’s works have been recognized in juried photography contests and his images also can be found on magazine covers both locally and nationally.
The theme of his exhibition at the Larchmont Library during June 2012 is “The Beauty of Larchmont” and includes graphic images of the Manor, the Larchmont Reservoir, local flowers as well as images in and around the village. “I’ve always been fascinated with the beauty of sunsets and sun rises and the sun coming up over Long Island Sound is especially inviting”, said Lewison when speaking about his photograph titled Sunrise at Manor Park. “In this image I’ve tried to capture the allure and majesty of the sunrise with the sun shimmering in reflection in the water and the clouds accentuating the many colors that the sun produces as it rises”.
John Lewison has been a resident of Larchmont for thirty years.
