B. DOCKTOR PHOTOGRAPHY
AT MAIN STREET MAGAZINE’S PHOTO GALLERY
AUGUST 28 – SEPTEMBER 30, 2017
B. Docktor is known for being a long-time documenter of the Columbia/Dutchess County area—not just the beauty of our landscape, but also of our people, our farms, our animals, our towns, our celebrations.
In this show, B is featuring some of her favorite places—Coach Farm in Gallatin, the views from the top of Winchell Mountain, Bash Bish Falls, Chrysler Pond, and animal portraits from Coach Farm, Spruce Ridge Alpacas, and Salmon Kill Farm.
A favorite Ancram place is Thompson Finch Farm. B has been eager to find a way to contribute to the campaign to help save the treasured farm for future generations. She has been photographing the farm and will create a set of collectable greeting cards and small prints featuring those images. All proceeds from the sale of these prints will be donated to the Thompson Finch Farm Collaborative, which includes the farm, Columbia Land Conservancy, and Equity Trust.

About her work, B says, “I’ve always aspired to make images that make you stop and say, —Wow, I feel like I was there! In addition to making images of nature and our glorious region, I love to photograph people and pets, weddings and family gatherings. Whatever I’m photographing, I’m always looking for that kernel of magnificence, that essential moment, that just right composition. The joy is in seeing the beauty and getting to share it with you.”
Main Street Magazine’s Photo Gallery is at 52 Main Street in Millerton, NY.
Open 9-5 Monday-Friday, 10-1 Saturday
