Paris Series: Jester
Richard Begbie is a native of New York City.
In his photographs, the viewer can see both the realistic subject and the abstract elements of the image forcing the viewer to experience the duality of his subject matter. By concentrating on the natural textures and colors, he conveys a multi-layered image to the viewer.
His award-winning works have been extensively shown in the Lehigh Valley and surrounding communities including the Allentown Art Museum, Reading Public Museum, Goggleworks Art Center, Hunterdon Art Museum, The Nurture Nature Center, The Sigal Museum, and the Phillips Mill Gallery.
Richard won first place in photography this year in the Pennsylvania Art of the State exhibition at the State Museum in Harrisburg.
