Bob Gomel's show over at the Pictures Plus Gallery is coming to a close and the Houston chapter of the ASMP would like to invite you to an "evening with Bob". There will be a casual discussion of some of the images and we hope a deeper understanding of what photographs bring to our world.
The event will begin at 6:30pm on August 28 at the gallery and will go until 9pm. The address is 115 Hyde Park Blvd, Houston 77006 (map).
Complimentary wine and hors d'oeuvres will be available.
Multiple Exposures: LIFE Photographer Bob Gomel Looks Back at the 1960s in Houston Exhibition
The triumphs and tragedies of the 1960s provided photographer Bob Gomel and his LIFE magazine colleagues extraordinary opportunities to advance American photojournalism.
Gomel said, “LIFE was the world’s best forum for photojournalists. We were encouraged to push creative and technical boundaries. There was no better place to work in that extraordinary decade.”
Born in New York in 1933, Gomel earned a journalism degree from New York University in 1955 and then served as a U.S. Navy aviator. Gomel joined LIFE in 1959 and shot for the immensely popular magazine for a decade. He later shot national advertising campaigns for Audi, Bulova, GTE, Merrill Lynch, and Shell Oil, among others.
Bob has been an ASMP member since 1963. He was instrumental in the formation of not only the Houston chapter, but the Dallas and San Antonio/Austin chapters as well. He served as the first president of the Houston chapter and held that post for the first three years of the organization.
