Gordon Center sets program on black and white photography

STEPHENVILLE, Texas—Photographers JB and Susan Harlin will present a program on old style photography at the W.K. Gordon Center in Thurber on Sunday, April 27, at 2:30 p.m. The program is free and open to the public.

The Benbrook-based artists, whose works have appeared in numerous exhibits across North Texas, regularly work with film sizes that range from 4x10 to 11x14 inches. They believe that using very large cameras and film allows a greater feeling of texture and reality not achievable with other media.

“Black and white photography is about creating a personal interpretation of what you find and frame on the ground glass of the camera,” the photographers have said. “It is said that a color image is generally reality, while a black and white image can represent what is within the mind’s eye.”

The W.K. Gordon Center, a museum and research facility, is located at exit 367 on Interstate 20 midway between Fort Worth and Abilene. Regular hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesdays to Saturdays and 1 to 4 p.m. on Sundays, closed on Mondays. For more information, call 254-968-1886.
