The Florida Museum of Photographic Arts (FMoPA) announces the opening of Jim Reynolds: CityScapes. FMoPA has steadily extended its platform of photographic exhibitions by showcasing artists such as Ansel Adams, Dorothea Lange, Ruth Bernhard, and now Jim Reynolds. An opening reception will be held on April 3, 2015 from 6-8 p.m. Reynolds will conduct a lecture about his work in the exhibition at the museum on May 1 at 7 p.m. Both events are free for museum members and students with a valid student ID while admission for non-members will be $10.

Reynolds’ photography has been included in several group exhibitions nationally and internationally. CityScapes is the first solo exhibition of his work in a museum. Incorporating characteristics of the Photorealism art movement of the ‘60s and ‘70s, the series offers views of New York City that capture the energy, excitement and scale of everyday life in the city. The exhibition also occurs simultaneously with National Architecture Week from April 12 – 18. “We are happy to support National Architecture Week with exhibitions of Jim Reynolds and Ezra Stoller’s architectural photography” says Executive Director Zora Carrier, “as well as hosting the AIA Architectural Photography Contest in our community gallery.”
