Capturing The World Around Her

Fine art photographer Phyllis Goodfriend will exhibit her work at the Garden City Public Library from April 1–30. View two of her themes: Sea & Fog (black and white and sepia) plus Doors & Windows (color). Great Neck’s Phyllis R. Goodfriend, Ph.D. specializes in photos of landscapes, cityscapes, and abstracts. A selection of her artwork from South Africa has been installed in the lobby of 1010 Northern Blvd, in Great Neck, and will be on permanent display there. She has had solo exhibits at The African-American Museum; the Great Neck, Port Washington and Shelter Rock Public Libraries; and the Universalist Unitarian Church at Shelter Rock. Her photography book Namaqualand and Namibia; A Photographic Adventure was published in 2009. Palouse!, a compilation of work from two trips to that region, was published in 2011. Phyllis is a member of the Long Island Center of Photography, The Manhasset-Great Neck Camera Club, and the Photo Artists’ Network.

The photographer’s artist's statement explains, “Color, light, and composition can transform even the most trivial bits and pieces of ordinary life into objects of arresting beauty. My passion for and immersion in photography has allowed me to 'see' as I have never seen before. I use my camera as a tool for expressing the essence of each experience: the perceived and the felt rather than the external reality. Although I enjoy the control over the final image afforded me by the digital darkroom, I am always aware that the basic techniques of lighting, composition, and exposure are more relevant than ever.

My first and abiding love is for nature and landscape photography. In my travels, both near and far, I have been fortunate to have been able to capture many beautiful images of this genre, as well as many photographs of people. Recently I have become fascinated by places and objects that have been lost, abandoned, or overlooked. I call this series 'Lost and Found.' Exhibits are free and open to the public during regular library hours. For hours and directions, please call 516-742-8405 or www.gardencitypl.org. The library is located in Garden City at 60 Seventh St. Exhibit funding is sponsored by Friends of the Garden City Public Library.
