Documentary filmmaker Dana Rae Warren of Searsmont will share film clips of her longtime friend, photographer Lou Garbus Wednesday, June 17, at 7 p.m. at Waterfall Arts, 256 High St. All are welcome; admission is by donation at the door.

Garbus (1917-2010) picked up a camera at age 12 in New York City and made thousands of iconic images of people he met as a career mail carrier and in his community life in the Bronx and Searsmont. He was an enthusiastic and much admired photography teacher and loved to talk about the creative process and art. His photographs, freshly and beautifully printed by Kevin Johnson of Ruby Light Studio, appear to be casual at first, but reveal his intimate appreciation of his subjects. A selection of his work is part of the current exhibit “Far Up Close” at Waterfall Arts through July 17.

Warren is a filmmaker, teacher and consultant with 20 years experience in the national television documentary and independent film worlds. She has worked as a producer and writer on “Moon Shot”; producer, writer and director on multiple episodes for the PBS NOVA “Science Now” series; and many other documentary films. She and Garbus were neighbors and good friends and she filmed him often.

More information about the Garbus exhibit and screening can be found at waterfallarts.orgGallery hours are Tuesdays through Fridays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and by appointment; to arrange, call 338-2222.
