The photo, man in srinegar, Kashmir is one of the images that will be on display in the "Faces of India" by Theo Solomon.
Teaneck, NJ (October 3, 2012) — Photographs by Theo Solomon will be on display at the Edwards Williams Gallery, on Fairleigh Dickinson University’s Metropolitan Campus Teaneck, NJ from Thursday November 5 to November 30, 2012.
On display will be eight portraits distilled from photographs from over four visits to India. No visitor is unmoved by the unimaginable beauty and pain of one of the most exotic countries on earth. Every city, temple, school and street captivated Solomon. Despite hardships that surround each person presented in Solomon’s photographs, no one, neither male nor female, religious leader or child playing with a leaf viewed his interest and camera as an intrusion.
Theo Solomon is a sociologist currently teaching sociology, anthropology and criminal justice at Bergen Community College. He has been a photographer however, since childhood. Initially his work explored black and white silver prints; recapturing the art of controlled photographic processes, then color as a voluptuous expression of people and nature. He is now communicating what he sees and feels through digital imaging. In every photographic medium, he does his own printing. His interests vary widely; the classic lines in architecture; impassioned faces of the poor and isolated; and landscapes of the near east, South America, Egypt, Southeastern Asia, Europe and our own country. For the last 20 years his work has been shown in various colleges, art galleries, libraries and museums throughout New Jersey.
The Edwards Williams Gallery, located at 150 Kotte Place, Hackensack, is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. and on Saturdays from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
