Lunchtime Lecture to feature historical and environmental images of FloridaThe photographs of Marilyn Brown will be presented by her at the Monday, Oct. 5, noon, Bea Peskoe Lunchtime Lecture in the Pioneer Room on the third floor of the 1st National Bank of South Florida, 1550 N. Krome Ave. in Homestead.
Through her skillful work, Brown captures and preserves environmental and historic images of Florida’s most breathtaking places. Using an antique 4-inch by 5-inch view camera, she produces large format, hand crafted, silver gelatin photographic prints.
Brown finds her inspiration in the natural offerings of Florida.
“Our Everglades, coastal shorelines, sunrises and dramatic skies are all unique to Florida. I want to preserve these sights on film so that others can enjoy the beauty, awe and inspirations that I see and increase awareness of Florida’s fragile and embattled environment.”
Marilyn Brown is a 50-year Florida resident and a graduate of the University of Florida’s College of Journalism and Communications. A number of her photographs are on display at the University
