Gordon’s first camera, gifted to him by a favorite uncle, was a well-worn Leicaflex single lens reflex. In his photographic journey many cameras have passed through his hands and various types of film have passed through his cameras. In college while studying to become a clinical cardiologist, Gordon found time to work with his art in a black and white darkroom on his college campus.
After a satisfying career as a clinical cardiologist and then editor of online medical content in Massachusetts, Gordon began to explore the world with his camera, visiting breathtaking landscapes in places such as the Atacama Desert, the Yukon Territory, and the Arctic in northern Norway.
But only recently has photography become a central, and perhaps essential, part of his life. He now spends as much time with image making as he spends in the workplace.
Landscape and nature have always been his central photographic interests. For many of my images, his goal is find the place where reality and art intersect. Gordon chooses to present what he feels rather than what he sees at the instant of capture.
Gordon’s images, chosen to show at juried exhibits, include the Concord and Cambridge Art Associations, the Darkroom Gallery in Essex Junction Vermont, and the Cape Cod Art Association in Barnstable. He was honored to exhibit with other talented photographers in “Night Becomes Us” at the Art Complex Museum in Duxbury in 2016. One of his images was published in the Photographic Society of America (PSA) Journal (2017). In 2018, three of his images were awarded prizes in New York Center for the Photographic Arts (NYC4PA) and in 2019 two of those were shown in a NYC gallery.
