Book of Blue Photography Exhibition 



Eric Francis holds first photo exhibition Oct. 3 at Coldwell Banker

Most people know him as their astrologer in Chronogram; others remember his escapades obsessively covering the SUNY New Paltz PCB disaster in the early 1990s, working mostly for Woodstock Times. Along the road of his long journalism career, Eric Francis has taken a lot of photos, beginning as a news photographer and, in 2007, opening his fine art photography studio in Uptown Kingston, called Book of Blue.

His first exhibition of photos will be at the Coldwell Banker office at 268 Fair St., Uptown Kingston, at 5 pm on Saturday, Oct. 3. The exhibition is coordinated with the First Saturday Gallery Walk.

“As a writer and editor, I’ve worked with some truly talented photographers. I’ve learned a little bit from all of them,” he said.

“But I really learned photography on the streets of Paris. On the day of the second Bush inaugural in 2005, I bought my first digital camera. Suddenly doing photography was free, and I was living in one of the most photogenic cities in the world, really, the birthplace of photography itself.”

The exhibition is a retrospective of his past four years of work, including a series of photos from central Paris, images from Burning Man 2009, photos of Uptown Kingston and a series from the Book of Blue, portraits of women looking in mirrors. The exhibition includes about 27 images from the United States, Canada, France and Belgium.

The exhibition’s curator is Sarah Bissonnette-Adler. Eric’s website is www.BookofBlue.com and his studio is located at 33 B North Front Street, Kingston.
