Light and shape are the themes of a summer photography exhibit being displayed at Hofstra over the next few months.
Hosted by Hofstra Special Collections and held on the 10th floor of the Axinn Library, the exhibit, “Light and Shape,” features images from Long Island-based photographer Robert L. Harrison ’75. The photographs depict light and shape in ways that are both natural and “super” natural.
“Harrison’s images are stunning and offer a really perceptive view,” said Geri Solomon, Assistant Dean for Special Collections. “Summer is the perfect time to admire beautiful photography, so we figured this was a great opportunity to showcase this collection.”
The exhibit is free and open to the public and will run throughout the summer.
“Light and Shape” is not the only collection from the award-winning photographer that has made an impression at Hofstra. The Long Island Studies Institute houses three additional photograph collections from Harrison, including “Places of Worship,” “September 11th Memorial,” and the “Long Island Image Collection.” Many of the images in these collections can be seen on the Special Collections Department website.
