Gary Beeber: Passages | LENSCRATCH

Photographer Gary Beeber has knack for finding humor and pathos in the every day, especially in those places that have fallen into decline. He has an innate curiosity and the photographs in his series, Passages, reveal a sense of wonder and amusement about the deteriorating detritus of  architecture and objects. He describes the beginnings of how he sees, “Influential in shaping how I see was the drawing class taught by Jack Potter, Drawing and Thinking, at SVA (New York City). He demanded we students see beyond the obvious and to be active interpreters of what we see. This dictate has been a major influence in my pursuit as a photographer. I engage with my world, led by my curiosity.”
