Marvin Greenbaum has been making photographs for the past 50 years.
Starting with a Kodak Brownie and later processing his images in a darkroom in his parent’s basement, he now has the advantage of shooting with a better camera and using advanced processing programs to create final images that reflect his varied interests.
In addition to splitting his time between Philadelphia and Cape Cod, Massachusetts, he chooses photography as a means of experiencing, capturing, and sharing memories of travels near and far.
His earlier underwater photographs were displayed in the American Museum of Natural History and the World Trade Center in New York City.
More recently, his works have appeared in galleries in Philadelphia and Cape Cod.
Ongoing projects have included a 10-year documentation of the String Bands in the annual Philadelphia Mummers New Year’s Day Parade and Carnevale in Venice, Italy.
His most recent portfolio is derived from visits to the Cypress Swamps of the Southern Bayou, represented by his image in this exhibition.
