Photo by Emile Backes

The Suffield Arts Council will present a show of photography by Suffield resident Emile Backes in the William Pinney Gallery of Suffield’s Kent Memorial Library during the month of March.

The show will be on display from March 3 through March 31. A “Meet the Artist” reception is scheduled for Thursday, March 12 from 6 – 8 p.m. in the gallery. The public is invited.

Born in LaJolla, Cal., Mr. Backes began drawing at an early age and discovered photography, using a Polaroid Instamatic and later cell phone cameras. He enjoys capturing images in color through his lens. The show will have many views of Europe, taken last year on a trip celebrating his 30th birthday, as well as photographs taken in Suffield.

A graduate of Suffield High School, Emile works at the Highland Park Market. He enjoys drawing, cycling, writing poetry, and has a great sense of humor.

This show is made possible through the joint efforts of the photographer, the Suffield Arts Council, and the KML staff.
