A new look at old photos in Lake Placid

Historians in Lake Placid are asking for the public's help in identifying hundreds of old photographs on display this summer. The photos are just a fraction of the thousands of images on glass plate negatives that were rescued by Dr. George Hart from destruction in the 1970's. Now known as the Barry Collection, the glass plates depict life in the Adirondacks: sports, families, recreation and wildlife. The photos date back to the late 19th and early 20th century. Todd Moe toured the exhibit at the Lake Placid North Elba Historical Society with Parmelee Tolkan, vice president of the Historical Society.  Go to full article

Preview: "One Degree of Separation"

After a 30 year hiatus, Burlington photographer Todd Lockwood is back behind the lens. Lockwood attended Northwood school in Lake Placid in the 60's, studied photography in Rochester and opened a studio in Denver. In the mid-70's he sidestepped into music and moved to Vermont. But once he realized he still had the "magic" for photography, he hit ground running, camera in hand. Todd Moe talks with Lockwood about his exhibition, One Degree of Separation. It opens Friday night at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts.  Go to full article

Photographer Suzanne Opton told PRI's Studio 360 how she came to make the series of portraits she calls "Soldier."  Go to full article

Book review: "Images of America"

In 1993, a visitor to New England from London looked for books which told the history of America's small towns. He found that for the most part they didn't exist. In response to this void, he started a publishing company to launch the Images of America series. The series includes many North Country communities. Jill Breit, with TAUNY, Traditional Arts in Upstate New York, has our review.  Go to full article
