New Photo Exhibit at Matthews-Fuller Library

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe Matthews-Fuller Health Sciences Library is pleased to host a new collection of artwork by Sarunas Burdulis. After exploring careers in experimental laser physics and later in electronic science publishing, Sarunas is now a Linux Systems Administrator at Dartmouth College. He is passionate about using free-and-open-source software in all areas of our digital lives, including photography. Sarunas started taking pictures back in the film camera age and spent many long nights exploring subtleties of printmaking in a traditional darkroom. With the advent of digital photography Sarunas embraced it as a long-awaited change, though he still likes experimenting with old, film-camera lenses mounted on new digital cameras: there is something in optical and mechanical quality of those “legacy” lenses, that makes them special in our days of quickly obsolescent gadgets. Primarily taking pictures to document vacation travel and day-to-day family life, Sarunas often finds himself busying with an unexpected change of natural light, a texture, a weather pattern, a perspective from window seat etc. — a fleeting moment, which deserves to be “captured”, preserved and shared with friends, real or virtual…

Sarunas’ work will be on display in the Matthews-Fuller Health Sciences Library beginning August 1st through October 31st.  The library is located on the 5th floor of the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, and is open Monday – Friday from 8am – 6pm.  Please stop by to see his wonderful work.
