Join us for our North Gallery artist reception and book signing featuring Radim Schreiber and his exhibit, Firefly Experience. Schreiber will share remarks at 7 p.m.
Free to attend; please RVSP here.
Schreiber grew up in the Czech Republic where fireflies are very rare. In his 20 years there, he saw them only once. They have always intrigued him and their abundance in the United States inspired him to photograph them.
Almost every summer evening since 2008, Schreiber has gone out on his bicycle to nearby fields, braving mosquitoes and chiggers to capture exceptional photographs of fireflies. When conditions are right, he stays out late into the night, photographing fireflies in the dark forest landscapes or under the Milky Way.
Interested in portraying fireflies as accurately as possible, Schreiber’s photographs are shot in the fireflies’ natural habitat, without digital manipulation or supplemental lighting. Each photograph faithfully illustrates the location of the fireflies in the scene and their apparent luminosity.
The Firefly Experience will be on display in the North Gallery and artwork will be available for purchase from September 6 until November 9, 2018.
