Photography Exhibit March-April

Emigrant-based photographer Ranga Parthasarathy will exhibit his work in the Atrium Gallery March 1 through April 30, 2018.

Ranga is a professional scientist and has worked at the bench in a lab all his life. He used to wake up every day wondering what he was going to discover that day. He brings this same passion to photography.  "What shots will I get today? It is what makes me pick up a camera almost every chance I get. To be sure, I might not even like any of the shots that I take on a given day, never mind taking masterpieces, but anticipation and curiosity are everything" says Ranga. He goes on to say "The right photograph will unseat you, move you, cause you to stumble as you edge in closer for a better look: the photographer does not need to explain what he meant. Like music, it announces itself directly to your heart."

The exhibition will be on display during Library hours.  A percentage of sales will go to the Bozeman Public Library Foundation to ensure continuation of cultural programs at the Library for public benefit.  For more information about the exhibit or opening reception, please call Sarah DeOpsomer at 582-2425 or email
