Photography by Josh Charow ’16 Featured In Morristown Art Exhibit
Black, White and Color will open on Saturday, August 15 at 70 South Gallery.
70 South Gallery in Morristown will open a new exhibit, Black, White and Color, on Saturday, August 15, 2015, featuring the works of professional photographer Joe Freeman, Newark Academy Senior Josh Charow, and potter Bill Wickley.
Gina Cerbone, Gallery Curator states, “In curating this show, we wanted to visually touch people with the emotional connection of the presence and absence of color. Joe Freeman’s tension and beauty filled black and white images call to mind those of Sebastian Salgado or Ansel Adams. We have coupled this with the vibrant colors of Josh Charow’s city views.”
Ira Black, Artist Relations Manager says, “As a premier photography gallery, it is important to work with photographers of Joe Freeman’s caliber to showcase his older silver gelatin, large format work and his new work that have a three dimensional quality in the textures he creates. Of equal importance is the support of great new talents such as Josh Charow who offers a clever eye and fresh perspective to the cities in which we live.”
Josh got his first camera at the age of 10 and eventually was able to save up to buy a DSLR three years later. He has explored and discovered the most beautiful unseen perspectives of New York City, focusing on the city lights after hours, whether from a rooftop, subway station, or on the street. Josh has worked on projects shooting for Young and Reckless, Stance Socks, and Aeropostale. He has won awards for his cityscapes from Scholastic. This summer, he is enrolled in the summer film program at NYU Tisch. His goal is to one day be a professional cinematographer.
Josh describes his creative process as “I want an emotion to be projected on the viewer … fear, happiness, sadness, or another emotion. If I can make someone feel something with one frame, then I’m satisfied with my work.”
