The Visions Galleries of Albany Diocesan Pastoral Center presents:

"THE STOOP PROJECT, A NEIGHBORHOOD IN TRANSITION”,

FEATURING 45 Hand-Tinted Portraits by Cohoes Photographer, Robert Gullie.

The exhibit will run until
February 23, 2007.

About “The Stoop Project”:
During 2005, Robert Gullie, well known in the Capital District for his surreal photographic tableaus, decided to alter his subject matter.

He chose to document the residents of a neighborhood undergoing gentrification. The neighborhood selected was the “Columbus Square” section of Troy, an area he was familiar with, having grown up in Lansingburgh. Gullie went back with an artist’s eye in order to portray, “……the dignity and reality of this neighborhood in the throes of a dramatic change.” All of his photographs were taken in black and white and then hand colored by the artist, emphasizing even more the character of the people in the portraits.

The Visions Galleries is located at 40 N. Main Ave. Albany NY, in the Albany Diocesan Pastoral Center. The gallery is open 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.Monday through Friday and is handicapped accessible.
