The General Lewis Inn is pleased to host Fran Belin’s black and white photographic essay, Gone But Not Forgotten, for an Author’s Tea on Saturday, April 6th from 2-4. Fran will give an informal talk at 3 P.M.
Take a close look at Fran Belin’s photographs to see the person behind the camera. You will find a person engrossed in and content with the daily life of country living. Her natural world is one rich with the lives of animals and plants. Her photos of persons show us, not a downtrodden folk (the apparent subjects of so many photography books of rural life), but people who take pride in their lives and who show great warmth toward the photographer. These are not photos by a distant outside observer but rather photos in which the photographer and subject photographed are bound together in mutual respect and friendships.
Stop by the historic General Lewis Inn on April 6th to hear Fran Belin discuss her photography and tell ‘em LBSPY sent you!
