Maine Media Gallery hosts a unique exhibition of photographs, rarely seen outside of Hollywood, July 1 – 27. Presented in association with the American Society of Cinematographers (ASC), the show of work is comprised of images by over 30 members of the venerable film organization.
Cinematographers are accustomed to viewing the world through the lens of a motion picture camera, but many are also accomplished still photographers. This exhibition showcases the fine art photography of the top cinematographers working in film today.
Many past and present members of Maine Media Workshops’ film faculty have work in the exhibition, including: Russell Carpenter (Titanic), Steven Fierberg (Love and Other Drugs), Robbie Greenberg (Free Willy), Francis Kenny (Justified), Jacek Laskus (Parting Glances), Isidore Mankofsky (The Muppet Movie), Robert Primes (Bird on a Wire), Dante Spinotti (Heat), John Toll (Bravehart), Vilmos Zsigmond (The Deer Hunter) and more.
Chartered in 1919, ASC membership is by invitation, based on an individual’s body of work. Currently, the membership roster comprises 302 cinematographers who hail from about 20 different countries. The ASC is been committed to educating aspiring filmmakers and others about the art and craft of cinematography.
Maine Media Gallery is on the first floor of the Shepherd Building, 18 Central Street, Rockport Village. An opening reception is set for Tuesday, July 5 from 6:30 - 8pm.
