What's Happening @ Hartness
Hartness Gallery: May 15-August 31 –
Photography Exhibit by Dr. Carl S. Brandon, Professor in the Science Department.
Dr. Brandon has been doing serious photography and darkroom work since 1959. He has an extensively equipped darkroom at home for both black and white and color developing and printing, and a high quality pigment printer which was used for the framed color prints in this show. His subject matter is wide ranging, including aerial photography, wildlife, exotic travel locations (including the first American trip through the Caucasus Mountains in 1965, mountain landscapes, bats in flight (for his doctoral work) and opera performance. He also did high speed cinematography of bats in flight, and published an article on a strobe design for such cinematography. The article led to an invitation by the Polish government to lecture on the topic at the University of Warsaw in 1981. He has done extensive large format photography with a Linhof Technica 4" x 5" film size camera. For the past fifteen years or so, he has been the official photographer and videographer for Opera North. His photographs have appeared in several books, a two page spread in the journal “Science “, and the National Endowment for the Arts “Annual Report to the President”. His opera video has been used by the National Endowments for the Arts as an example of how to make a high quality work sample for grant application at the National Opera Conference. He is the principal investigator in the Vermont Tech Lunar CubeSat project which will be placing a satellite in orbit with a camera to take pictures from space.
