Berkeley College is presenting the photography of Alan Kaplan at its Midtown Manhattan Gallery, First Floor Lobby, 12 East 41st Street, New York City. This exhibit, titled “Colours and Holymen,” is on display from February 5 through April 25 — Monday through Friday — from 9:00 am to 7:30 pm and on Saturdays from 9:30 am to 3:00 pm. A reception will be held on Thursday, February 6 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm.
“Alan is one of the most fascinating photographers I have ever met,” said Robert Keiber, Curator, Berkeley College. He explained that the photographs reveal the connection between human beings, using a secret language to engage audiences, and that the work invites viewers to participate in the experience.
Mr. Kaplan said, “It’s much more effective to allow the unexpected and capture the humanity. Those first few seconds will create a shock of recognition with the viewer; that is what I aim to capture.”
The photographer’s current clients include Orange Communications, PNC Bank, Qwest, Jack Daniel’s, T-Mobile, Yahoo, American Express, Nokia, MillerCoors, Nestea, Microsoft and Citibank.
