The opening-night reception will be on Thursday, October 6, from 6 to 9 PM. The Exhibit is free and open to the public during Library hours.
This will be Mr. Surbeck's third solo show at the Montclair Public Library Gallery.
Mr. Surbeck's photography has long been admired in Montclair, initially through the blog Baristanet, and more recently in his work as a freelance photographer for the Montclair Times. He was also the staff photographer for Friends of Anderson Park, and from 2007-2009 he documented the use of Anderson Park in all seasons. Those photos were an integral part of the conservancy's successful nomination to the National Register of Historical Places.
Mr. Surbeck has taken photographs for the newspaper Downtown Express in Manhattan, and is currently staff photographer for the Manhattan Sailing Club in North Cove in Battery Park City, using his experience as a sailor and racer to capture striking images of boating on the Hudson River along Lower Manhattan.
Recently, Mr. Surbeck moved back to Manhattan after 22 years in Montclair. Long interested in documenting the life of New York City through street photography, he roams and shoots the streets of New York almost every day.
