People of Asia: Lawrence Elbroch opened April 15 thru June 11, 2016. . People Of Asia is an exhibit of the beautiful photography images from his travels with his wife Victoria.

Born in New Your City, Lawrence has lived in several states and the United Kingdom before settling down in New England. He is a self-taught photographer, who continues to grow and push photography by taking workshops taught by notable photographers such as Sean Kernan, Michael Yamashita, Jock Montgomery, and Eddie Soloway. He recently completed a workshop offered by Paul Taylor on photo-polymer etchings to produce Photo-polymer Gravure prints. Lawrence has traveled extensively with his wife, Victoria, an accomplished printmaker and artist. They frequently collaborate on joint work frequently exhibiting together.

Lawrence is a state-juried member of both the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen and the New Hampshire Art Association.  He has served in several League of New Hampshire Craftsmen’s Village Elder Board of Trustees positions, including president, and is currently on the Executive Committee for North Country Studio Workshops.

Elbroch states. “My aim is to take the viewer with me to Asia.  Through traveling and interacting with other cultures, I have learned that we are more alike than different, but that it is our differences that are beautiful and maybe unique.  I am particularly drawn to those who celebrate spirituality and who live closer to the earth.

Many of my photographs are taken off the beaten track.  I like to wander and witness in an unobtrusive way.”

Among the awards and recognition he has received are: The image “Sadhu Series #3” was selected by Photographer's Forum Magazine to be included in the book "Best of Photography 2015". This was chosen from over 10,000 entries from 69 countries; The image “By The Light”Balancing Basket was commended in the Low Light category of the Sony World Photography Awards 2015.
