Description

Douglas R. Gilbert has been a serious photographer since the age of fourteen. When he was twenty-one, he joined the staff of Look magazine in New York as the second youngest photojournalist in the magazine’s history.  A few years later, he left Look to work as an artist and has since had his work published in countless national and international publications such as LIFEThe Saturday Evening Post and Glamour.

Shadow and Light includes 28 black and white silver gelatin prints from the Douglas R. Gilbert Photography Collection at Grand Valley State University. Over a period of ten years, Gilbert traveled throughout Italy to photograph the light and landscape that has drawn generations of artists. This selection looks specifically at the contrast and dynamic play of shadow and light on the architecture of Italian communities.
