Friday, August 26, 2011
Red Wall Gallery, Lake Ontario Hall, Allendale Campus
Robert Koropp was a true creative in the field of photography. He received a master's degree in chemistry but went on to study photography at the Art Center School in Los Angeles and he realized it was his real passion.
Koropp had a successful career in advertising with numerous high profile clients including Kellogg's, First National Bank, Amoco, Mobil, Honeywell and Pentax. With a background in science and a desire to experiment, he created multiple bodies of work including experimental and micro photography, land and cityscape, still-life and motion images, and more.
He published several photography books and produced limited edition fine art prints for private and corporate collections. This exhibition is a selection from a new gift from Daryl Fischer of 94 photos produced by her father, Robert Koropp, during his five-decade career.
The opening reception will be held on Thursday, September 8, 2011 at 4:30 PM at the Red Wall Gallery. The exhibition continues through October 14.
