Photographer and Brownstoner regular Bob Marvin’s landscape photography is on exhibit at Tugboat Tea Company in Prospect Lefferts Gardens through December 5. A reception for “Landscapes From Top to Bottom” will take place this Thursday, November 14, from 6 to 9 pm. The show is part of the PLG Arts Tugboat Local Artists series, which Marvin curates.
All of the 16-by-20-inch prints show images taken in Brooklyn or southern Vermont. “They emphasize form and texture in details of the landscape that might otherwise be overlooked,” he said. He uses mechanical cameras, medium-format black and white film, and fiber-base silver gelatin photographic paper. He prints the photographs in his own darkroom.
Other current projects of PLG Arts include jazz concerts and a “weaving” of plants on the Lincoln road bridge fence over the Q train. Tugboat is located at 546 Flatbush Avenue, between Lincoln Road and Beekman Place.
