Chasing the Light”, an exhibit of color and monochrome photographs by Lakeville resident Gan Barber will be shown during the months of April and May at the Great Ponds Gallery. Included in the exhibit are landscapes, seascapes and images of natural features from the area.

Mr. Barber carefully prints his original color photographs using archival pigment inks on 100% cotton papers. His monochromes are created with as many as 7 hand mixed dilutions of carbon pigment ink and printed on 100% cotton rag paper. Each print is made to express the presence of light and texture with materials designed for longevity.​
