Another video about Dr. Herman's work is now available. This one was created by Todd Tinkham just before the exhibition for went on display at Through This Lens, and has been shown several times at the gallery. The entire video is just over 7 minutes and can be seen by clicking on this link: http://vimeo.com/90427369 target="_blank"
You will still need to visit Through This Lens to really appreciate the photographs, and we hope you will be even more interested after having watched this short film.
With Todd Tinkham's help, we plan to offer more videos about future events and artist's statements. Your comments are welcome.

Patricia Murray came by today for a short video interview asking me about the work by Dr. Bernard Herman, on display through April 5, 2014. Ms. Murray also asked about the Will Grossman Memorial Photo Competition. While few like to listen to themselves, or look at photos of themselves, I hope you will take a peek at this video. You can find it at TV Skywriter, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MKaEfevdt_o. It will provide some background on Dr. Herman's work, and information about the Will Grossman Competition. Haircut aside, please tell me what you think.

|Ernest Drawing at Through This Lens|
Though he was not a photographer, he was one of the first, and most consistent visitors to Through This Lens. Ernest had a number of health issues over the years but was a very cheery person who spent much of his time drawing. His drawings were like over sized calling cards, and he would leave a new one at almost every visit. I believe it was his way of saying thank you for the friendship that he found around town.
