Documentary Photographer's Retrospective at The von Liebig Art Center

NAPLES, FL.-The Naples Art Association at The von Liebig Art Center presents a traveling retrospective, Curiouser and Curiouser: The Photographic Adventures of Brynn Bruijn, from March 8 to April 27 at the art center, 585 Park St. in downtown Naples. The galleries are open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m. Admission is free.

The exhibition features 65 photographs taken in 32 countries from 1975 through 2007 as part of Bruijn's travels as a documentary photographer for Saudi Aramco World, National Geographic, Town & Country, Cosmopolitan, and other magazines. The images detail the daily activities of people from Africa, China, Europe, Russia and Tibet, while textual references from Lewis Carroll's beloved book Alice's Adventures in Wonderland will guide viewers into Bruijn's world of adventure and encourage them to look at the ordinary in extraordinary ways.

"The images may, at first, seem foreign," Bruijn explains. "But on second thought, viewers will realize the people in the photographs could be their neighbor down the street. If people walk away from the exhibition thinking we're not all that different, I'll have done my job."

Bruijn notes that readers of the magazines she worked for may recognize some of the images, most of which have been published before. All photographs in the exhibition are for sale, as is an accompanying catalogue of the exhibition's collection. Locally, Bruijn works for Naples Illustrated, n magazine, and Robb & Stucky, among other clients.

The exhibition is sponsored by M&I Wealth Management, Saudi Aramco World, Lynda and Thomas Bulloch of Sagemark Consulting, and Kimberley Speer Miller.
