The Eyes of His Soul

The Street Sweeper, Barry Goldwater, 1966

Not only a political legend and icon, Barry Goldwater’s mastery of photography garnered him the prestigious honor of having been inducted into the Royal Photographic Society of Great Britain and he was a lifetime member of the Photographic Society of America. With clear vision and an artist’s touch, Barry’s critically acclaimed images earned him international recognition in the elite world of fine art long before fate assigned him a leading role in the political arena. The Gallery at Serenbe, in partnership with the Serenbe Photography Center, is proud to present Barry Goldwater: The Eyes of His Soul Exhibition From September 3 through October 29, 2011.

Goldwater received a camera as a gift from his wife on their first Christmas together.  He went on to embrace the hobby and become an accomplished photographer.  Goldwater contributed photographs to Arizona Highways and published three books of his photography; People and Places, Barry Goldwater and the Southwest (forward by Ansel Adams), and Delightful Journey. 

Barry Goldwater’s photographs were last showcased in Atlanta in 2008.  The Gallery at Serenbe will host a special reception, welcoming Goldwater's oldest daughter, Joanne Goldwater, on October 1 from 5pm to 8pm.  She will sign copies of the book, The Eyes of His Soul and discuss her father's images with guests.  "I am delighted to be a part of this exhibition to show the public my father's works." says Joanne.

Gallery hours during the exhibit are Thursday 10am-5pm, Friday and Saturday 10am to 6pm, and Sunday 1pm to 4pm; other times by appointment by contacting The Gallery at 678-519-1238.  This is a unique opportunity to view the exhibit and take home extraordinary work by Goldwater as well as a signed book by daughter Joanne.  For the collector of photography it presents the chance to purchase a wonderful piece of art with a great history.  If you would like a signed book, but cannot attend the reception, please contact The Gallery to make arrangements.  For more information on this event and the Serenbe Photography Center visit http://www.serenbephotographycenter.com/.
