Join us on Friday, March 8 as our third-floor gallery transforms into Harbors of Refuge: Beauty in the Natural World, An Exhibition of Photography by Stanley M. Kolber. Our new exhibit showcases the wondrous photographs that Stanley Kolber has shared with us. Kolberís lifelong love of nature and his enjoyment in seeking out the beauty in nature are evident in this collection which includes birds in their natural habitat as well as water abstractions.

During his exciting photography career, Stan has had the chance to travel to Alaska, South Africa, Botswana, Patagonia, Belize, Costa Rica, and many of the national parks and wildlife refuges in the United States, including Point Reyes, Yosemite, Yellowstone, Ding Darling, and the Everglades.

Stanley Kolber was not always a nature photographer, although he has been interested in nature and birds for many years. Stan worked for much of his life as a lawyer, first in the Department of Justice under the Kennedy administration and then later in corporate and securities law in New York. It was the 9/11 attacks that made Stan, whose office had been located in the World Trade Center, take his life and career in a new direction.

Though his art has many subjects, Stanís greatest passion in photography has been observing and capturing the lives of birds. In an interview with The Day in 2017, Stan said, ďI have a tremendous respect for wildlife and birds in particular. When you spend enough time watching them, you realize they have a lifestyle and a dignity. Trying to capture them in the field with a camera permits them to speak, to say a little about themselves.Ē

Stanís work has appeared on book covers, been purchased for private and corporate collections, and been jury chosen for exhibitions. Notable examples where his work has been purchased and exhibited are the Childrenís Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts and the Pleiades Gallery in Chelsea, New York.

Not content to rest on his laurels, Stan dedicates his time to helping the next generation of nature photographers gain enthusiasm and develop their skills. At his workshops here at the museum, Stan begins by teaching photography fundamentals and then moves onto the specifics of bird photography, such as the winter season, migrations, and best locations to capture different species. He emphasizes the importance of having respect for wildlife and getting to know the creatures without interrupting their daily lives.

The Connecticut River Museum is located at 67 Main Street on the Essex waterfront and is open daily from 10 am to 5 pm. The Museum, located in the historic Steamboat Dock building, offers exhibits and programs about the history and environment of the Connecticut River.
