Photography with Thad Gerheim
Saturday, August 22, Thad Gerheim, local and well known wilderness photographer will speak about large format photography at 7:00 pm.

Gerheim said, "It's a very exciting time for photographers, with so many different options in image capture and various printing methods for making an expressive photo! Why use slow large format film cameras for landscape photography in today's fast paced digital age? My short answer would use Alfred Stieglitz's quote 'When I make a photograph I make love'.

There is renewed interest in film photography and we will look at why the process is still relevant, and why universites and colleges are bringing back their darkrooms. We'll heft the backpack that carries camera gear into remote wilderness and go through the labor of love in setting up, composing, metering, and tripping the shutter for the latent image which may be months before we see it in print. I'll have 4x5 and 5x7 large format cameras on display."

Don't miss out on this unique program.

Annual luncheon at Redfish Lake Lodge
We had an excellent turn out for our annual luncheon at Redfish Lake Lodge with local author John Rember. Rember read from a new work in progress to a rapt audience. He touched on some of his recurring topics such as the unsettling prospects for the planet's future, making us think about serious problems and laughing at the same time. He ended his reading with some good news, he and Julie have a new puppy! We appreciate both John and Julie (who was helpful with publicity) for another successful luncheon. We are grateful to our sponsors, Redfish Lake Lodge and Idaho Rocky Mountain Ranch. A couple of loyal luncheon attendees from Boise made a very generous donation in addition to purchasing tickets. It's folks like these supporters that enable us to continue to provide important library services.
