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.
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
