ABOUT THE EXHIBIT
"Our job is to record, each in his own way, this world of light and shadow and time that will never come again exactly as it is today." - Edward Abbey
The vastness of the pristine Western landscape and the counterpoint of occasional evidence of man's presence have always been subjects of great interest for photographer Charlie Lieberman. The past two years of his life were spent touring the American West to capture the images proudly presented in ... as it is today.
ABOUT THE PHOTOGRAPHER
Shortly after completing college, Charlie Lieberman decided to change directions and pursue a career in photography. Other than a deep appreciation for the photographic image he had no experience in the field. He wandered the streets trying to see if he was capable of creating quality photographs, to see if he could teach himself how to take a good picture. He spent a couple of years at grunt level employment in camera shops and still studios trying to absorb technical skills. Gathering up his confidence, he then set out to freelance as an editorial still photographer. He spent a few more years enhancing these skills when a filmmaker hired him to shoot production stills on a documentary project. Finding cinema as interesting as stills, Charlie pursued that branch of photography by first working in documentary, educational and industrial film. He eventually moved to Los Angeles and continued to have success as a Director of Photography in dramatic television and independent film. All during this time he never stopped capturing still images. His love of natural locales caused him to shift his subject of interest from urban landscapes to natural ones.
