Parma Public Library, 7 West Ave., Hilton, is exhibiting photographic images by local artist Ron Bucci through September.
Bucci’s lifetime interest in photography took a serious turn in 1973 when he worked part-time in the camera department at JB Hunter while attending Monroe Community College for audiovisual technology. He furthered his education at Rochester Institute of Technology, studying commercial and illustrative photography while working at Eastman Kodak as a professional staff photographer.
He studied advanced location lighting in New Mexico under California photographer Christopher Springman, and worked with New York photographer William Coupon and National Geographic photographer Sam Abell.
Bucci’s work was published in several magazines, and was displayed on Kodak’s U.S., Canada and Japan websites. He shared his experience and knowledge in photography by teaching adult classes at Monroe 2-Orleans Board of Educational Cooperative Services in Spencerport. He served as a judge in the Hilton AppleFest photo competition.
Many displayed images are in a digital format. Some images started as Ektachrome slides that were later scanned to digital format. Bucci’s subject matter is a wide variety of still life, landscapes and portraits.
Bucci’s camera of choice for his work is Nikon, which he used throughout his career as a professional photographer.
This is the 73rd display in a series of exhibits hosted by the library that feature area artists and photographers.
