In just the past year, the work of Schenectady photographer and Union College art professor Martin Benjamin has graced the cover of Metroland, The New York Daily News and Thoroughbred Times – not to mention Nippertown.com.
So you can imagine the sheer quality and quantity of fine photography that he’s amassed over the course of his award-winning career.
“Atomic Age” – currently on exhibit at the Yates Gallery at Siena College in Loudonville – touches on much of that work. It’s an exhibition of two dozen black and white photographs spanning the quarter century between 1978-2003.
The exhibit is a slightly expanded version of Benjamin’s recent show in Atlanta, and both exhibitions were culled from the pages of Benjamin’s long-overdue first book, also titled “Atomic Age,” published late last year.
Martin Benjamin’s “Atomic Age” will remain on view at Siena College’s Yates Gallery through Friday, March 12.
