During the month of May color photography by Barrington resident Chuck Van Sluyter will be on display at the Barrington Public Library. The collection includes landscapes from Chuck’s travels around the United States, Italy and Ireland. Nearly all of the images are printed from 35mm slides. Chuck has been a serious amateur photographer for over 35 years. His career as a management consultant has required considerable travel that broadened the scope of his work. His approach to photography has been influenced mostly by the writings, lectures and images of William Neill and the late Galen Rowell.
Both of the fine nature photographers who have influenced Chuck’s work are well worth checking out. To discover more about William Neill and his work, click on this link: http://www.williamneill.com/homepage.html.
