An exhibit featuring black and white and color photographs by photographer, writer and poet Ray Kwiatkowski will be on display in the Gloria Cachion Art Gallery in the Southbury Public Library from September 4th – September 28th. On view, will be many of his new works.
Kwiatkowski says he first became interested in Litchfield County scenery after college when he had a job delivering newspapers. He started taking black and white photos of country roads and other scenes of beauty making this a lifelong pursuit. “ I like to exhibit images that are intended to teach as well as bring insight into what is often just a glance away”, said Kwiatkowski, who was influenced by the late photographic artist Donald Bruen. Bruen would also occasionally critique his work.
As a freelance writer, his photos were often featured with his articles. In 2013, a book of his verses and photos was published.
