Bruce Barnbaum
February 6 through March 1, 2008
Artist Reception: First Thursday, Febuary 7th, 6 - 8pm
Artist Talk: Saturday Feb. 9th 2 - 4pm

Bruce Barnbaum of Granite Falls, Washington entered photography as a hobbyist in the 1960s. Today, after 40 years, it is still his hobby; it has also been his life’s work since 1970. He has taught workshops since 1972. For this exhibition he has pulled together images from his career that pertain to stones and rocks in the broadest sense creating a magical photographic journey. Bruce's educational background includes Bachelor's and Master's degrees in mathematics from UCLA in 1965 and 1967. It was here where he discovered the canyons that lay east of California. After working for several years as a mathematical analyst and computer programmer for missile guidance systems, he abruptly left the field and turned to photography in late 1970. The stones and rocks of the dessert were the subjects of his first images. This exhibition will explore his entire history and fascination for rocks, stones and the formations they create whether natural or man made.
