Sawyer Free Library in Gloucester, MA presents Chilean Photographer Rodrigo Gutiérrez in person on July 7th at 7:00 PM.T
The Sawyer Free Library is proud to announce that photographer Rodrigo Gutiérrez of Chile will be presenting a talk about his acclaimed print collection entitled “Beauty Will Save the World: Picture a Story”. This premier event will take place at the Sawyer Free Library on Thursday, July 7 at 7:00 PM. The show opens on Tuesday, July 5, and continues through July 30, in the Matz Gallery at the library.
Mr. Gutiérrez will talk about how he discovered his passion for seeing the world through the lens; especially children from his travels around the world including the Himalayas, the United States , Europe and Gloucester . His expressive black and white portrayals portray children and the inner beauty that spills out of them even when their lives are spent “on the street”
This unique program will inspire not only artists but also those who appreciate a man who is a photographer by avocation but who captures the soul of humanity in his photographs. Mr. Gutiérrez leads a blended double life. Professionally he is a senior vice president in Latin America for Merrill Lynch, the global wealth-management company. He was educated as a lawyer in Chile and later earned a master’s degree from Tufts University ’s Fletcher School .
Mr. Gutiérrez took up photography when he decided words were not enough to express to family and friends what he saw in his travels. Inspired by the likes of Henri Cartier Bresson and Minor White, he studied with other leading photographers to develop mastery of composition and darkroom technique.
Please come and welcome Mr. Gutiérrez to the Library and to the community. For further information, please visit the libaray’s website at www.sawyerfreelibrary.org.
