Ross Lowell, founder of Lowel-Light, cinematographer, author, photographer, mentor, Renaissance man…will open his “TIME TRAILS” photo exhibition at the Pound Ridge Library on Saturday, May 15, 2010 with an artist’s reception from 3-5 p.m.
You can be sure his images will be both beautiful and well-lit. He describes them as “fanciful reconstructions, built from borrowed elements of bent reality.” I’m also confident the Pound Ridge Library will also be carefully re-lit in case its curators have neglected to follow his seminal book “Matters of Light and Depth.”
Ross has received an Academy Award for Technical Achievement, two Academy Award nominations, Emmys, Golden Eagles, and many other awards. He founded Lowel-Light early in his career as a cinematographer frustrated with the technology that existed at the time. The company was later taken over by his partner Marvin Seligman, and last year, Lowel has become part of Tiffen.
