Festival of the Arts: Peter Hornby - Lighthouse Photography

Date: Tuesday, Feb. 2
Time:
7 p.m.
Location:
Rankin Student Center Art Gallery

Peter Hornby of Ocean Park, Maine, began his early career photographing the ocean and surfing. In the late 80s he began to photograph waves and atmospheria in Cape Hatteras, an area of artistic interest to him. During these years he was well known for his photos of the windsurfing culture. These appeared as postcards and in magazine illustrations.

Hornby returns each winter to his beloved Minnesota, where he photographs and reconnects with friends. His winter is also active with photographing lighthouses on the Great Lakes. To date he has photographed more than 170 lighthouses in North America and in the U.K.
