Bill Gordon: Photographs of the Street

Exhibition on View: February 4 – March 11, 2018

Butler Trumbull, West Small Gallery

“Street Photography is about the world of man and his influences. It is not always perfect in a technical sense. Fancy frames and vivid colors are nonessential. Predominately, natural light and minimal equipment are used to capture the subject. Super optics and the best lens do not always guarantee good pictures. However, it is important to have a strong image, one that reports the subject and tells a story. Great photographers use their minds and hearts as well as the proper equipment.

At times my approach has been candid. More often, it has been confrontational. For many years I have photographed on the street, a pursuit that has allowed me to express my feelings and to derive much pleasure. Personal contacts with the subject have

helped create lasting memories of the persons, places and creatures that have come my way.” – Bill Gordon
