The exhibition, “My Photographic Life: Photographs by Joe Long,” opened on June 13 with a festive reception. The exhibit will run through July 11 at the Visual Arts Gallery. The 93-year-old photographer shared work that spanned 70 years. He reflects, “My involvement with SFCC now totals twenty years as a photography student, lab monitor, tutor and as a teacher for 11 years.” He is currently co-teaching a class in Night Photography through Continuing Education with his son Michael Long, who also teaches painting through Continuing Education.
Joe Long “Artist Statement 2019”
Moving through the many stages of life the images reflect my visual interest at the time. I have always enjoyed the process.
Presently, showing examples of my work with figurative beauty, portraits, still life, landscapes, documentary, and my ongoing fascination with multiple images, also showing examples of my professional work.
I hope that my photographs will be an inspiration to you today and in the future.
