The Frostburg State University Department of Visual Arts will present a lecture by photographer and installation artist Michael Berman on Friday, Feb. 3, 6 p.m. in Fine Arts room 132. A reception in the Stephanie Ann Roper Art Gallery for Berman’s newest installation will follow . Both events are free and open to the public.
The installation will be on display can be viewed in the Roper Gallery from Sunday through Wednesday from 1 to 4 p.m. through Wednesday, Feb. 22.
Berman’s work is a record of his wanderings of the borderlands of the Southwest and Mexico. He is attracted to un-peopled places where he walks and photographs. His work is firmly rooted in both the contemporary and the classical tradition. His classically executed black and white photographs participate in and extend the romantic tradition of Western landscape photography.
For seven years, Berman has photographed El Gran Desierto, the 6,000-square-mile swath of desert along the Southwest Arizona and Sonora border.
