MARGARETVILLE, N.Y., December 6, 2017– Eleven stunning images by Chichester photographer Mark Loete are on view through January 5 at the Catskill Watershed Corporation (CWC) offices, 905 Main Street, Margaretville.
The public is welcome to visit weekdays from 8 to 4:30 (closed December 25 and January 1).
The exhibition, “ReSOURCE,” offers a visual connection between the streams of the Catskills and the city that receives the priceless gift of water which those streams provide. Photographs of tumbling creeks in Peck Hollow, Stony Clove, Woodland Valley and other locales hang beside striking images of iconic wooden water towers in New York City. Silhouetted against dramatic skies, the tower photos were taken from a rooftop in the Hell’s Kitchen area of Manhattan.
All of the photographs, matted and framed, are for sale. Prints can be ordered in different sizes.
Mark Loete is a professional fine art and corporate photographer with more than 30 years’ experience shooting a wide range of subjects, from landscapes and architecture to products and people. Clients have included Sony, IBM, Avon, Harper-Collins, and the United Nations.
In 2002, Loete moved his home, family, and photography business to the Catskill Mountains, settling in the historic hamlet of Chichester, Ulster County. An avid fly fisherman and a New York State licensed guide, he often indulges his passions for photography and angling on the fabled streams and rivers of the Catskills.
Explains Loete, “In this era of action cams, selfies, and social media, I still believe in the primacy of the still image to move human emotion.”
The CWC is a non-profit, Local Development Corporation responsible for several environmental protection, economic development and education programs in the New York City Watershed West of the Hudson River. www.cwconline.org
