The Granby Camera Club is excited to have Ted Roth as the guest photographer for its April 1 meeting. The meeting starts at 7:15 p.m. and is held at the Granby Senior Center. Roth has been shooting photographs since childhood. He studied both design and language arts at Carnegie-Mellon University, simultaneously earning degrees in architecture and literature. His photographic passions lead him to careful compositions under natural light only, but no image is finished without slow development of the image’s full potential in the darkroom of his computer. After 40 years living and teaching in Connecticut’s Northwest Hills, he became fascinated with the old mill towns of the Naugatuck Valley and their history, and began following the tracks through old ruins until he was led to the last functioning brass mill. For the past four years, he has been photographing the men at their work, traveling back in time, and learning how it all came to be. Guests are welcomed for this special program.
