Hampshire College invites the public to a tribute exhibition of Jerome Liebling photographs. Twenty-seven monumental images—many are over three feet wide—are on display in the Jerome Liebling Center for Film, Photography, and Video on campus through November 8.

The photographs are from the last exhibition Liebling curated of his own work, a summer 2010 show, “Capturing the Human Spirit,” at the Currier Museum of Art in Manchester, N.H.

Renowned photographer Liebling teamed up with master printer Jonathan Singer of Boston, using digital printing techniques to create these exceptional images from black-and-white and color-film negatives dating from 1947 to 1996. Details and definition are revealed in the monumental photographs that were hidden in prints one quarter their size.

On Sunday, October 30, the life and work of Jerome Liebling will be celebrated at a public memorial service at 1 p.m. in Hampshire’s Robert Crown Center. A reception will follow in the Liebling Center.

Liebling, who passed away July 27 at age 87, was among the founding professors of Hampshire College. He joined the faculty in 1969, before the College opened in fall 1970, and taught at Hampshire until his retirement in 1990.

His name graces the Jerome Liebling Center for Film, Photography, and Video—a centerpiece of the Hampshire College campus—because he was as gifted and influential as a teacher and mentor as he was as a photographer and filmmaker.

An event page has been set up on Facebook to enable friends and former students to share messages, information, and tributes with one another and with Liebling’s family  as part of his memorial. Facebook page >>
