Beth Green: Photographer Beth Green will present a special exhibition featuring cityscapes and scenes from sports in the Sandy Bennett Art Gallery in bergenPAC from Sept. 13 to Sept. 30. Artist receptions will be held on Thursday, Sept. 14 from 6 to 8 p.m. and Saturday, Sept. 16 from 3 to 5 p.m. so that people can meet Green and hear more about her photography.
Green actually began in front of the camera as a model. Then, after attending Boston University, she interned for renowned photographers Ansel Adams and Minor White. She then worked for fashion photographer Richard Avedon in New York City, where she was inspired to use her photography skills to tell stories from a female perspective.
She began a career in photojournalism with United Press International, shooting Queen Elizabeth, Pope Paul VI and three Presidential campaigns, among other subjects. When women journalists sued to have access to men’s professional sports locker rooms in 1976, Green was one of the first women photographers to cross that threshold. She captured big moments like the Philadelphia Flyers’ Stanley Cup victory over the Boston Bruins, while also covering Olympic gymnastics, boxing, professional baseball and basketball.
She created Beth Green Studios in 1989, which focused on corporate women and has substantially changed the look of corporate photography. At the turn of the millennium, she returned to her roots and studied the elements and process of photography as fine art.
“Light constantly changes: beautiful photographs are forever,” Green says.
