Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow – Brian Lav

The Red Filter Gallery, located at 74 Bridge Street in Lambertville, New Jersey, is hosting the work of renowned photographer Brian Lav, in a show entitled, “Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow”, beginning September 6th and running through November 4th. The opening reception is Saturday, September 8th from 3-5pm. “Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow”, is open to the public each afternoon, Thursday through Sunday.

“Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow” breaks the Red Filter Gallery’s tradition of black and white photography by also including some select contemporary color work by Brian Lav alongside his brilliant monochrome work. Gallery owner, Forrest Old states, “Brian’s work, then and now, encompasses a broad evolution of style with substance. His new ventures into color work are exciting and worth experiencing by a broad audience”.

“Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow” explores the everyday life of New Jersey resident and photographer, Brian Lav. While everything from Jersey Shore sights to garage windows, old sofas and train stations are examined with a soulful eye, they are given new meaning through careful composition of angles, lines, forms and light. Lav transforms the ordinary into images of nuanced emotion with his control and attention to detail. Craft meets art, leaving a visual history of creative artifacts.

Brian Lav has taught at Parsons since 1974. He has been photographing and teaching since 1969, and earned Parsons’ Distinguished Teaching Award in 1988. He has had over forty one man and group exhibits of his work and is represented in many permanent collections including The International Center for Photography, The Rochester Institute of Technology, The New Jersey State Museum, The Newark Museum, and The Museum of Art and History in Fribourg, Switzerland.
