Gallery on Main’s “Artist of the Month” series continues with an exhibition of photography by Metuchen, New Jersey-based artist Imma Barrera.
Born in Barcelona, Imma Barrera is a landscape and nature photographer. A biologist as well as a graduate of NY Institute of Photography, she has exhibited her photography in a number of galleries worldwide and won several awards. Her favorite subject to photograph includes landscapes from dusk to dawn, including astrophotography.
Imma was selected as a 2019 Capitol Reef National Park’s Artist-in-Residence for her night sky photography. In addition, she was shortlisted in the Landscape category of the 2019 Sony World Photography Awards professional competition with her series “Under the Night Sky”.
She is author of the book “The Stars, The Moon and The Sun: In the NJ/NY Area” (Imma Barrera ISBN: 9781083074126). Her current project involves documenting different features of a few selected American national parks and presenting those images together in the format of a published book. She is also involved in educational programs about photography, as well as seminars to raise awareness about the need to protect our natural treasures.
Imma Barerra’s work will be on view, and available for purchase, at Gallery on Main from March 1 through 31, 2020.
