Featuring scenes of New York City, Metropolis, a new exhibit by three area photographers, will open in May at the Alex Ferrone Photography Gallery in Cutchogue. Water Mill resident Rich Faron works in multiple genres, using both digital and film cameras. Having restored a 1953 Nikon Rangefinder camera, Faron increasingly returns to the film process. After a media career, Long Islander Scott Farrell now concentrates on his art, influenced by Dorothea Lange, Walker Evans, Ansel Adams, and Andrew Wyeth. Ray Germann began documenting New York City in 1978. Photographing mainly in black & white, Germann's twenty-five years of experience working in the traditional wet darkroom helps him produce digital prints with a similar look and quality to the darkroom papers of old.
View Metropolis from May 3 through June 8, and join the artists for a gallery talk on Sunday, May 18 at 2:00 PM. The artists' reception is Saturday, May 3, 2014 from 6-9 PM with Lenz Wines and light bites.
