Norberto Gherbesi has been taking pictures since before he came to the United States from Argentina in the 80s. Along the way, he has used many types of camera and has come to believe that the equipment is less important than the eye. He describes his work, which will be featured in the upcoming Artist in Residence series in the Lamar Soutter Library, as “not what it is, but what it looks like, and not what it looks like, but what it is.” Many of his images are, in fact, reflections.
Gherbesi works for UMass Memorial Medical Center in the Department of Pathology, running the electron microscopy lab; he formerly worked for the UMMS Department of Cell Biology, where be learned electron microscopy.
The exhibit “Reflected Visions” will be on display on the first floor of the Lamar Soutter Library from Thursday, Nov. 1, through Friday, Dec. 14. There will be an opening reception on Thursday, Nov. 15, at 5 p.m. For more information, contact Nancy Linnehan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
