At the age of 91, Francine Moskovitz looks back over her 40 years as an enthusiastic photographer and says, “My journey has been adventurous. I’ve gone from underwater cameras, to single lens reflexes, to digital cameras.” Her work has included painting and sandwiching slides, weaving photographs with Mylar, producing double images with a reflective glass pane, and presently, manipulating and combining digital images.  Seeking new and individual ways to present her photographs, she has produced numerous portfolios.

This exhibit follows a photographer’s path from the 1970s to the present, with excerpts from the following portfolios:

Underwater: Corals  •  Underwater: Nudes, Balloons  •  Double images  •  Architectural Abstracts
Landscapes  •  Travel  •  Posterized Images  •  Panoramic Composites

Francine Moskovitz became involved with photography first by joining her husband in scuba diving.  She loved the undersea world and reveled in trying to capture on film the corals and tropical fish. From the ocean she moved to a swimming pool and after much experimenting, ended up photographing nudes, “which brought me my first attention as a photographer!”

Around the time she moved past underwater photography, Photoshop became available, and it opened up a whole new range of possibilities for her.  “Since then,” she says, “every photograph I do is re-worked in Photoshop—sometimes a little, sometimes changed into a new image, or completely re-made into a composite of several photos. Working on photographs at the computer for several hours a day has become a way of life for me.”
