Photographer B. Docktor Opens New Show
at 510 Warren Street Gallery in Hudson, NY
FEBRUARY 4 – FEBRUARY 27, 2017
OPENING RECEPTION 3-6pm, FEB 4
HUDSON (NY), JANUARY 24, 2017: For her upcoming show in Hudson, from February 4 to February 27, the photographer and maker of “moving images,” B. Docktor, will feature new landscapes—all local—as well as selections from her iconic images of animals on the area’s picturesque farms. Docktor is known for being a long-time documenter of our region—not just the beauty of our landscape, but also of our people, farms, animals, towns, and our celebrations.
B trained in photojournalism with a B.S. from Syracuse University, and before that had her eye tuned to beauty by her father, the illustrator/artist, Irv Docktor. “I appreciate that I have inherited a very artful way of seeing and composing photographic images,” B says, “and I grew up revering Life Magazine and Sports Illustrated. I love sports and—being very agile myself—I’m always trying to get myself in the right place at the right time! I seek to emulate the great photographs of those magazines, while infusing my images with an artful eye. I always aim to find that essential moment, no matter what I’m photographing.”
Using what she calls her “‘moving images’—“in both the physical and emotional sense,” she interjects— B is also presenting an innovative video presentation for the gallery’s front window that will showcase the full breadth of her work’s subjects. She calls this video project “a visual love poem to our area, featuring the beauty of our land, the glory of nature and animals, and the diverse celebrations of its people. Many people know me as an animal photographer, or maybe they see my landscapes in exhibits, in commercial spaces, and online. That said, I photograph people the most—always have and always will! As these rarely get exhibited, except on my website www.bdocktor.com—I’m grateful to have this opportunity to exhibit my favorite “moving images” of people as well as the natural world at 510 Warren Street Gallery.”
B. Docktor’s show, Moving Images, runs from February 4 through February 27, 2017, with an opening reception on February 4 from 3 to 6pm. For further information, contact B. Docktor by telephone at 518-329-6239 or via her website, www.bdocktor.com. The 510 Warren Street Gallery can be reached at 518-822-0510, or visited online at www.510warrenstreetgallery.com.
