Thomas Roma, Photographer and Columbia Professor, Exhibition at the Wallach Art Gallery

Columbia University’s Miriam and Ira D. Wallach Art Gallery begins 2010 with a rare opportunity to view exhibition prints from Thomas Roma’s published works.

Pictures for Books is open to the public from Wednesday, January 20, through Saturday, March 27. In conjunction with the exhibition, the gallery presents a conversation between the curator and artist on Wednesday, February 3, at 6:30 p.m. Admission to the exhibition and the related programming is free of charge.

The new exhibition comprises almost 100 photographs selected from four key publications: Found in Brooklyn, Sicilian Passage, Come Sunday, and On Three Pillars: Torah, Worship, and the Practice of Loving Kindness – The Synagogues of Brooklyn. It presents an opportunity to both view prints from several projects side by side and to view his rare, limited-edition, hand-bound books.
