Award-winning journalist, author, amateur photographer and longtime Byram resident Alexandra Bogdanovic is exhibiting 50 of her best photographs of New York City at the Byram Shubert Library through the end of the month.
Though New York City is known as The Big Apple, Gotham or just “the city,” it teems with life and crowds at all hours. It’s loud, tough, gritty, ugly, beautiful and resilient. It is a place of endless possibility, where dreams come true and hopes are dashed. Bogdanovic reminds us that for some photographers, Manhattan’s towering buildings are awe-inspiring and, for them, it’s all about the skyline. For others, the city’s spirit is reflected in Times Square’s chaos or the tranquility of Central Park.
Bogdanovic, who uses an Olympus point and shoot camera or trusty Canon EOS Rebel XTI in automatic mode, loves big, bold, graphic images. Her favorite place to shoot is Times Square. She also enjoys photographing the iconic Flatiron Building, and captured striking images of both locales in a series of photos dubbed “Cloud Cover.”
The Byram Shubert Library is located at 21 Mead Ave in Greenwich. The exhibit runs through March 31, 2015.
