“The Glacial Potholes Portfolio” A Retrospective Exhibit of Early Work, by Geoff Bluh, will be exhibited at McCusker’s Market from Oct. 16 through Nov. 30.
An opening reception will be held Sunday, Oct. 27 from 1-4 p.m. Light refreshments will be served.
This exhibit of traditional black and white images made at the Glacial Potholes are from a student portfolio made in 1983 at GCC. Geoff reprinted the original negatives in his darkroom this year to make exhibition sized prints. These have a timeless quality that have endured for more than 30 years. The venue for the exhibit also is a return to the photographer’s roots, McCusker’s Market at the historic Odd Fellows building where Geoff used to have his darkroom and exhibit work at the store.
Bluh grew up in Conway, and has been a photographer since the early 80’s. He took photography classes at Greenfield Community College (GCC) and worked as a Greenfield Recorder staff photographer and freelancer for many years. Throughout this career Geoff has alway balanced the work of photojournalism with black and white darkroom printing jobs and personal projects. Geoff grew into digital photography in the early 2000’s; film and old cameras still have a hold on him, as does the quiet time in a darkroom , where light, chemistry and experience combine to make images as they were made since photography’s earliest days. Geoff is also a member of the Vermont Center for Photography in Brattleboro where he participates in juried exhibitions.McCusker's Market
