Roger Katz: Brattleboro Color VCP June show
If you ever attended a Zone VI workshop in Brat. you may have visited the camera shop Roger owned and ran during that time.
Anyway, here are the details of the show;
Roger enjoyed capturing portraits of people that depicted them in their natural disposition and exhibited their true essence. He would share his love and knowledge for photography with anyone who would listen and served as a mentor to many. Katz passed away April of 2013 after a long-fought battle with cancer.
This exhibition is a visual celebration of his life, featuring over 150 vintage gelatin silver prints focusing on the many“colorful” characters of Brattleboro and the surrounding towns – primarily from the 1970′s through the 1990′s. This collection of photographs acts as a portrait of a unique community as well as Roger’s distinct ability to capture some of its’ finest, funniest, occasionally saddest, most memorable, and strikingly beautiful moments.
The exhibition will be on display from Friday, June 6th through Sunday, June 29th, 2014. Gallery hours are Fri/Sat/Sun from 12-5pm.
