Points of View
Photography of Bob Bond and Brad Sevaldson
September 7- 28
Reception: Saturday, Sept. 7, 5pm to 8pm
Bob Bond has been photographing the life around him since he first picked up a camera at the age of 14. Primarily known for his commercial portrait photography and graphic design, Bob’s main passion is to get out of the studio and record what’s going on the streets of the world. This series of images, taken over the past 30 years, is from Athens, Greece, New York City, Las Vegas and New England.
Two of his very well received, themed solo shows, “GrabShots” and “SnapShots” have been shown in several galleries around New England as well as in the Massachusetts State House.
Brad Sevaldson’s love of photography started with annual trips to Maine that began in 1996. He found that the water, landscape and all things symbolic of the state captured his eye.
Drawing on his background in commercial art and visual presentation, his photographs of architecture, landscapes, and objects capture design and balance and graphic elements. While his photographs are generally unaltered, some are enhanced or manipulated to create unique pieces. His work has been shown in both Maine and juried shows in Florida.
