Hodges Taylor Gallery in Charlotte, NC, Features Works by Byron Baldwin
The Hodges Taylor Gallery in Charlotte, NC, is pleased to present a solo exhibition by Charlotte photographer Byron Baldwin's work, entitled New Images from Cuba. The exhibition opens Apr. 4 and continues through May 30, 2003.
Baldwin brings his latest series of images from his most recent trip to Cuba, making this his third visit to that country. Cuba is a visual delight, a step back in time. The faded glory of the architecture and the street life offer many opportunities for a photographer. The music, dancing, food, domino games and street baseball provide immediate access to the people and their rich culture. Baldwin describes his work as an intuitive process, moving as directly as possible from observation to translating it into a photograph. The results are lush black and white photographs, which give you a glimpse into life in Cuba.
A founding member of the Light Factory, Baldwin is known to many in the Charlotte community as a teacher at Myers Park High School. Now retired, his students won numerous awards and he inspired many of them to continue with photography. Baldwin's own work has won many awards and is included in private and corporate collections, such as Bank of America, First Union, R.J. Reynolds Corporation, North Carolina Museum of Art, Levine Museum of the New South, and the High Museum of Art. He has had solo shows at the Gibbes Museum of Art, Winthrop University, and been in a long list of group shows which include Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art, Light Factory, Greenville County Museum of Art to name a few.
