January Art Show – “Beautiful Nature” – January 3-30 Hubley photo-First Light, Marblehead Ma

Michael Hubley is a self-taught nature photographer whose work has won him prestigious awards, including the Ritz Camera Grand Prize for his “Oh What a Night” polar bear. He was chosen as the sole photographer for the “Gardens of New England” coffee table book.  With a keen eye for detail, in the midst of an average, familiar location, Michael can visualize a beautiful work of art given just the right light. His technique allows him to take an ordinary scene and transform it into an extraordinary image. This is Michael’s first show at the library. All are welcome to view this beautiful show.
