Renee Byer exhibition at SUNY Ulster


images by Renee Byer

Exhibition of Photographs by Photojournalist Renée Byer
at the
Muroff Kotler Visual Arts Gallery on the SUNY Ulster campus.

A 1978 graduate of SUNY Ulster, and inducted into the College's Alumni Hall of Fame, Byer, a photojournalist with 25 years of experience, won the 2007 Pulitzer Prize for Feature Photography.

This photo-essay documents the life of a single mother and her 10 year old son who has a rare and deadly cancer. It is a beautiful and emotional body of work that is a must see. Every image is intimate, moving and compassionate. There seems to have been no boundaries between Renee and this family- which leaves us with powerful images that will resonate long after we have seen them.

The exhibition will be on display from September 6 - 26, 2008.

Gallery hours are Monday - Friday, 11:00 am through 3:00 pm.
For more information, call 845-687-5113.

I am sorry I missed that show, but you know, I don't know if I could have handled it right now. It is still too real for me. xp
