Howe is a former picture editor of Life Magazine. He is the author of two books on photography, Shooting Under Fire, and Paparazzi, and several children's books.
From Five Points Gallery's website: "During my career in photography people were usually the subjects of both the pictures I shot as a photographer and published as an editor. Several years ago I had a traumatic brain injury and found I was no longer able to function as an author, something I had been doing for about a decade. This brought me back to taking photographs, and I became fascinated by the idea of unpopulated landscapes. Instead of photographing the inhabitants of earth I concentrated on the planet itself. This is the land as it may have been before we crawled out of the sea, and as it may be when the last humans leaves."
In addition to Howe's exhibit there will be two solo shows of paintings--in the East Gallery, Geoffrey Detrani's "Way Station," and in the Top Gallery, Walter Kendra's "The Florence Series."
There will be an artist conversation with all three on on Friday, October 21 at 6 pm.
Five Points Gallery is located at 33 Main St., Torrington, CT
