“Valley Forge,” photograph

Sol avidly pursued his interest in landscape color photography beginning in 1914. He captured sunrises, sunsets and other spectacular natural events throughout the United States and Europe. He sought to capture untainted landscapes and the grandeur of the outdoors. His images featured the play of light as it shapes the landscape and particularly the colors of the ends of the day, capturing the patterns of color in the clouds, sky, and water. He added views of cityscapes seeking out their unique features and the play of light on the structures. He used a digital camera and Adobe Photoshop as the darkroom, bringing out the best in the image. On some images he added an artistic overlay to evoke a particular mood or to make an abstract image.

Judy Levy has graciously donated two photographs by her husband: Valley Forge and Purple Door.
