The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders is pleased to present an exhibit of photographs by Leo Osorio of Elizabeth in the gallery space at the Union County Office of Cultural and Heritage Affairs, located at 633 Pearl Street in Elizabeth. A selection of his work entitled “New Jersey & Beyond” is on display at the Pearl Street Gallery until December 29. Gallery hours are 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays.
“We are pleased to have Mr. Osorio’s remarkable photographs on display,” said Freeholder Bette Jane Kowalski, liaison to the Union County Cultural and Heritage Programs Advisory Board. “The exhibit showcases Mr. Osorio’s skills as a fine photographer of nature and architecture.”
Mr. Osorio says of his work, “I am self-taught in photography and have always enjoyed it. Every year that goes by I learn new techniques, sharpening & defining my style. I enjoy photographing the outdoors, nature in all aspects from Cherry Blooms to the way nature takes over an abandoned house to historic graveyards. I personally love historic homes and the architecture these homes have to offer.”
Leo Osorio has been a photographer since 2002 and has exhibited his work extensively. 2017 exhibits include: A Photographic View of Elizabeth and Beyond, Elizabeth Public Library; October 5th, Elizabeth Public Library Historic Buildings of Elizabeth; the Snyder Academy, Elizabeth, October 15th, Gone, But Not Forgotten: Cemetery Tomb Stone Photography.
