On the Wall Gallery
May 2013 - "Cambridge in Springtime" - photographs by Fran Cooper
Fran Cooper began taking pictures about 10 years ago with a three inch point and shoot film camera. Surprised and delighted by a photograph taken at twilight during a hike in the Mount Wachusett area, she began to explore photography seriously.
After reading many of the Cambridge Library’s collection of books on the topic, she also began and completed the program offered by the New York Institute of Photography. Her work has been exhibited at the Central Square Library’s “On the Wall” gallery several times. Fran has created and displayed a series of photographs on trees and her work has been used in several fund raisers she supports. Although she is a relatively new convert to digital photography, she is enjoying the process of learning how to use it well.
For this exhibit she has chosen a group of ten photographs in which she attempted to express some of the beauty in nature as it is displayed in the buildings and gardens she passes and enjoys on her frequent Cambridge walks.
