Local Photographer Brian Hooker to Present at Boulder JCC

Brian Hooker, Boulder Photographer

Brian Hooker comes to the Boulder JCC as part of ACE’s Photography on the Big Screen series. Local photographers are invited to present a slideshow of their work, and to discuss their process, aesthetics, techniques, and the evolution of their art.

Brian Hooker has a lifetime of images to share, and will focus on his travels around the Southwest at his Lunch and Learn presentation – “From Mountains to Deserts in the Southwest” – at noon, Thursday, October 31.

A Boulder resident for more than 40 years, Brian Hooker enjoys finding harmony as well as dissonance in his photographic subjects. He particularly enjoys photographing Colorado and the desert Southwest, and extensive travels overseas have contributed more exotic elements to his portfolio.

Color, geometry, and texture all play a part in the visual response he tries to evoke. His photographs span the range from expansive landscapes to a focus on the details of nature. Some of his recent work explores the blending of classical two-dimensional photography with new techniques in stereo photography.

Brian combines an extensive technical background in optical sciences and engineering with decades of artistic expression in B&W and color photography. He earned a Ph.D. in optical sciences through his research into optimizing the quality of optical images. His early interest in black & white photography has been largely replaced with his current focus on color, digital photography.
