Photographs by John Levandoski
January 4th - March 4th, 2008
Opening Reception January 4th, 2008 5:30 - 7:30pm

The images in this show represent places I've been and things I've seen throughout Pennsylvania during my photographic career. From striking union workers (of which I was one) to beautiful landscapes to coal breakers and trains, these images will remind all of us of our home in Pennsylvania.

~ John Levandoski

John has been involved in photography for approximately 28 years. From 1983 to 1997 he owned and operated Camera Pro Inc., a retail camera store and studio. In 1997, he closed the store to concentrate on fine art photography. John shows and sells his work at local venues throughout northeast Pennsylvania and also at art festivals in PA, NY and NJ. John is also part owner and curator of The Highlands Photographic Gallery in Milford, PA.

John works primarily with a large format camera using traditional b&w silver halide materials processed and printed by hand in a wet darkroom. He counts Ansel Adams, Edward Weston, John Sexton, Clyde Butcher and Steve Simmons as important influences.

"I like to photograph the people, places and things that connect with our memories as Americans."
