“First Responders of Larchmont and Mamaroneck: A Tribute

The Mamaroneck Artists Guild, at 126 Larchmont Ave, Larchmont, NY are showing (through July 25th) a remarkable, graphic and moving display of full life size, high resolution portraits of  Mamaroneck and Larchmont’s indispensable first responders: police, firefighters and EMTs.  The artist photographer of this striking collection of portraits is Robert P. Fine.

Mr. Fine, shown here with his work, gives you an idea of the scale of the pieces.  The effect is very dramatic.

Each of the First Responders is identified by name, retaining the importance of the individual, as well as the necessity of team work depicted by the collection as a whole.

On viewing the diverse group of men and women represented here, I’m struck by their  cheer and openness, as well as the obvious pride these individuals take in their chosen professions.

The gallery is an open, airy light filled space, painted pure white, creating an excellent stark backdrop for the dark uniforms worn by the subjects.

In addition to Mr. Fine’s compelling approach to photographic portraiture, he is also an accomplished landscape photographer. On his two web sites you can see ample examples of his impressive work in both areas.        www.extremeres.com and www.rfinephotography.com

The pieces currently shown will continue to be available for purchase through Mamaroneck Artists Guild (MAG) for $225 each

MAG rotates shows every three weeks, which gives us all plenty to see.  Visit their web site to see what’s coming up next!
