The photography of Al Haring is being featured at the Berks County Agricultural Center until July 31. The exhibit displays wildlife, farms, and flowers captured by Haring’s camera and specially mounted using a shadow box method.
Berks County Agricultural Coordinator, Sheila Miller, noted that this is the third exhibit of Haring’s work at the Ag Center. “Our exhibit space has been expanded beyond the main lobby over the past several years. Haring’s photographs compliment the artwork on display in the main lobby area by J. Alan Boyer, of Oley.”
Haring is a self-taught photographer from Kutztown. After retiring from Western Electric/AT&T/Lucent (Allentown plant) in 1990, he began spending more time on his hobbies: ham radio, gardening, cooking, photography and general tinkering. Only after the digital media boom did he become more serious about photography and all of the digital post processing that goes with it. Currently his photo subjects tend to be local scenery, people, and flora. He can be contacted at 610-683-8213 for more information about his photographs.
