Opening at The Lightroom: Beyond White Pines, Poconos Paradise Past & Present

Beyond White Pines: Poconos Paradise, Past & Present is a photographic exploration that captures the current conditions of abandoned resorts in the Mount Pocono region of Northeastern Pennsylvania.

Equipped with Rolleiflex and Nikon FE2 cameras, Matt Hurst and Katie Rey have used realist and surrealist styles, respectively, to document these formerly-bustling vacation retreats. This exhibition features photographs made over the course of the past year, as well as found original advertisements and brochures which give the viewer further insight into the history of these places.

There is also an artist talk on Saturday, October 25th at 1 PM.
And the closing reception is on Saturday, November 15th from 1 – 4 PM.
