Our lives at times seem a study in contrast… love & hate, birth & death, right & wrong… everything seen in absolutes of black & white. Too often we are not aware that it is the shades of grey that add depth & meaning to the starkness of those extremes.
— Ansel Adams

On April 22nd, 1984, American photographer Ansel Adams passed away leaving behind a legacy and body of work that would forever influence landscape photography. His iconic black-and-white images helped to establish photography among the fine arts. 

That very same day in April of 84’ Barry DiBernardo stepped foot onto Yosemite National Park on a trip scheduled to meet Ansel. 

Call it fate, call it coincidence, but Barry wasn’t able to meet his idol on that trip. Instead, he took his spirit with him, and began his pursuit in creating some of the most impressive photographs of Yosemite National Park since Ansel. 

I love your images you made in Yosemite in May 2018.  The clarity and the light are superb.  Your style and technique is like Ansel Adams with modern technology of today’s world.  If Ansel Adams was alive I know he would be impressed with your work and creativity.   In Ansel Adams time he was hired out to test film and new technology.  I feel you are following in his footsteps. I am excited for your new work and looking forward to seeing more.
— Christine Loberg, Former Assistant to Ansel Adams

Barry was enamored by photography since the age of 12. He learned still photography quickly and received the Top Award by the New Jersey Federation of Camera Clubs 3 years in a row. Simultaneously at age 16, was recognized by Eastman Kodak for his motion picture abilities by winning the Kodak International Teenage Movie Award Competition.

Barry DiBernardo started his professional photographic career at age, 16, with weddings, portraits, commercial and convention photography. His efforts continued thru college and medical school. In surgical residency, he was the creator and Founder of, Dermagraphix®, an imaging system for the early detection of skin cancers now used worldwide.  Once in Plastic Surgery, Dr DiBernardo created and published, The Photographic Standards in Clinical Photography and is one of the world leaders in clinical imaging as well as light and energy-based aesthetic treatment devices.

His love for landscape and nature photography started early as well.  Over the years, he has traveled the world, pole to pole with National Geographic.

I met Barry several years ago on a National Geographic Expedition; it was a working trip for me as I was onboard as the National Geographic Photographer.  In addition to an almost immediate friendship based on our mutual love of photography, I was also impressed with his ability to “see” strong compositional elements, along with capturing moments and details in so many situations. His understanding of those critical components of photography naturally led to his ability to create great photographs, a rare ability in this craft.  I thoroughly enjoy viewing his work.
—  Jay Dickman, National Geographic Photographer, Pulitzer Prize Recipient

The evolution from film to digital evolved over his photographic career.

With and eye for image and beauty, both in photography and Plastic Surgery, Barry DiBernardo is now producing images which are once finally to the standards of film.  Technology both in cameras and printing, had to progress to the point of sensors seeing as close to the human eye as never seen before. He believes we have entered a new era of the photographic experience. And has been championing the best technology in the industry today. In fact he is one of a few photographers in the country using the Phase One 150 Megapixel Back with the Danish View Camera Cambo, and the finest Rodenstock German lenses.

It has been an honor working with Dr. Barry DiBernardo in his quest to capture the highest quality photographs of a variety of subjects. His dedication to detail and composition is evident in the images that you are viewing at his latest exposition at Gallery L.  He is following in the footsteps of the great photographers of the past such as Ansel Adams while using the latest in modern a digital / hybrid capture system that is available today. The system that he uses consists of the Phase One IQ4-150 which has a 150 megapixel sensor attached to the Cambo WRS 72/50 Anniversary Edition body utilizing the highest quality lenses by Rodenstock which allows him to capture almost an infinite amount of image quality and detail.

HOLLYWOULD BABYLON

HOLLY SUZANNE RADER

hollywouldbabylonAUDREY.jpeg

Inspired by fashion, street art, nature and vintage glamour, Holly’s work is an escape into nostalgic romanticism. She credits her love for bright “flower” colors and rhinestone embellishments to her charmed southern upbringing. This world collides with her adult life in forms of punk and graffiti influences living outside New York City. Her collages feature glittering heroines and silver screen actors from a bygone era dripped, layered and embellished into modern portraits. 

Babylon is a place of mystery, pleasure, heartbreak, courage and often bittersweet endings. This most recent collection of Holly’s work portrays beloved faces from Hollywood. These were lives that are both charmed and tragic. They are adored by many yet truly known to very few.   

ABOUT HOLLY

Holly is a Tennessee born American artist who has exhibited in New York, Miami, Atlanta, Savannah, Paris and Hong Kong. She has studied and completed artist residencies in Savannah, Georgia and Lacoste, France. She received an MFA from the Savannah College of Art and Design. Publications include The New York Times, Cottage Living Magazine, Industry Magazine, La Figaro and Le Monde. She currently works and lives with her husband and two sons in New Jersey.

One man's story about taking on the Appalachian Trail, searching his soul, and finding true happiness.

IMG_9845.JPG

“I’m Ryan Benz. I quit my career to follow my dreams. 

At 31 years old I was married, owned a home, had college education and successful career, but was stressed, anxious and dissatisfied with life. After my divorce, I was alone for the first time in my life, so I turned to meditation and mindfulness. Those practices started me on the long and arduous journey of letting go of all the things that led to my unhappiness.

To find my best self, and to seek freedom and happiness, I decided to go for a walk...a very long, soul-searching walk. 2,189.8 miles from Georgia to Maine to be exact.

Come hear my story about going against social norms, letting go, and taking risks in authentic ways. Mine is a story about finding passion and pursuing it relentlessly. I share it to inspire each of you to create a unique path to ultimate freedom and happiness.”

Join us for a truly special evening, at the Gallery.

We'll listen to Ryan's story first hand, see what he saw, feel how he felt and even eat what he ate! But most importantly, be inspired to pursue our own dreams and true happiness. 

Tickets are $30 and are LIMITED!

5:00 - 5:45 Drinks and Welcoming
5:45 - 6:00 Intro and Short Film
6:00 - 7:30 Ryan’s Talk w/ Q&A
