Penn State (GBE-PST-004) Early Works 1967, Moonlight Landscape, State College, Pennsylvania Gary Bernstein graduated from Penn State University in June of 1971 with a Bachelor of Architecture degree. He had been a photo-hobbyist from a very young age, starting to make images with his parent's classic Kodak Box Brownie camera. It was on the Penn State campus that Gary began to hone his photographic skills and started shooting professionally while still an undergraduate. In 2013, Gary was asked to lecture via Skype to the photography classes at his alma mater, Penn State's College of Arts and Architecture. This culminated with a live lecture he gave at The Palmer Museum on the Penn State campus in December of 2013. Gary often returned to his home outside of Washington, D.C. on weekend trips from Penn State. Leaving late one Friday evening, he encountered a frozen lake outside of the campus. This image was made around midnight, and what appears to be the sun is in fact the moon captured using a long time exposure on a tripod. It was captured with a Minolta SRT-101 affixed with a 58mm f/1.4 Nikkor lens with a star filter on Kodak Tri-X 35mm black and white negative film. The image was converted to sepia by The Archives for this Limited Edition.
