Let It Snow!

Monroe Gallery of Photography, 112 Don Gaspar, is pleased to announce "Let It Snow!", an imaginative survey of great photographs with a winter theme or setting. Included in the exhibition will be images from around the world, dating from 1918 to the present. The exhibition opens with a reception on Friday, November 22, from 5 to 8 PM. Several photographers will be in attendance. "Let It Snow!" will continue through January 12, 2003.

Photographs in the exhibit range from the Russo-Finnish War of 1939 to the collapse of the Soviet Union in the early 1990s; from leisure at the luxury resort of St. Moritz in 1932 to fun in the snow of the New York Blizzard of 1996; from glacier climbing in New Zealand in 1946 to the 1960 Winter Olympics at Squaw Valley; from tranquil snow scenes of the American West to cityscapes in snow.

Included in the exhibition are photographs by Mark Citret, Debbie Fleming Caffery, Loomis Dean, Robert Doisneau, John Dominis, Alfred Eisenstaedt, Adolf Fassbender, Andreas Feininger, Andre Kertesz, Jacques Henri-Lartigue, John Loengard, Carl Mydans, Kendall Nelson, Ruth Orkin, Shepard Sherbell, George Silk, Peter Stackpole, and many others. Many of the images have never been exhibited before.
