Bruce Katsiff is an accomplished photographer whose poignant and varied work encompasses environmental portraiture, collage, and carefully curated constructions. River Town Portraits bring to light 10 years of photographs spanning the 1970’s, in which Katsiff’s friends and neighbors, and the town of Lumberville itself, are revealed. The images serve as a record and insight into a compelling time and place in our local history.
Seeing elegance beyond the surface, Katsiff’s work reveals complexity and empathy as well as a virtuosity with camera and darkroom. His Platinum Palladium and Gelatin Silver prints made with a large format view cameras are a testament to the manner in which his work combines science with the magical and personal beyond the lens.
Katsiff earned his BFA from the Rochester Institute of Technology and his MFA from Pratt Institute. His work has been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art and is held in the collections of the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Katsiff has published two monographs on his work, including River Town Portraits, and Nature Morte, which accompanied his solo exhibition at the Delaware Art Museum.
