The Universe in Color
Throughout the month of March, Robert Gendler's astrophotographs are on display at Grumpy Bert gallery in Brooklyn.
NEW YORK -- An astrophotographer who has snapped images of the cosmos from a driveway in Connecticut is taking center stage in a Brooklyn space art exhibit.
Robert Gendler has loved snapping pictures of the night sky for years. What started off as a vague childhood interest in the cosmos has become a hobby that Gendler has carried with him through most of his adult life.
"I picked it up as a hobby in Connecticut and started taking pictures," Gendler said. "It became a real passion."
Gendler's work is being presented here at the Grumpy Bert gallery in a show entitled "The Universe in Color." His work went on display this month and will remain on the gallery's walls until Sunday (March 31). Usually, his photos have a home in the hospital where Gendler works as a radiologist.
"I have a passion for the visual," Gendler said of his hobby and chosen profession.
