LUBBOCK– Landmark Arts at the Texas Tech University School of Art presents City Landscapes and Typologies by Dan Lobdell, as the final exhibition in the 2015 – 2016 SRO Photo Gallery Exhibition Series. City Landscapes and Typologies will be on view at the SRO Photo Gallery April 25 – May 22, 2016. The exhibition is free and open to the public.
The series City Landscapes and Typologies by Dan Lobdell features photographs of 19th and 20th century building facades in Rust Belt cities such as Buffalo, Pittsburgh, Baltimore, Detroit, and Cleveland. Lobdell documents a variety of architectural styles in urban environments that have either successfully adapted to or declined due to de-industrialization and changing times.
His use of perspective captures dramatic skies and the surrounding setting, while the use of black and white photography emphasizes each building’s architectural form and features. For Lobdell, City Landscapes and Typologies is an “investigation into how the buildings, in their stateliness and various degrees of disrepair, engage with their environment and the new urban reality.”
Dan Lobdell holds an MFA in Photography from Temple University in Elkins Park, PA. He is currently a Lecturer in Art at York College of Pennsylvania in York, PA. He is represented by Gallery 339 in Philadelphia, PA and has exhibited extensively throughout the United States.
