Gene Witkowski: Little Planets and Waterfront Photos

I am fascinated by photographer Gene Witkowski’s ability to capture images of places that appear to be worlds unto themselves, or as he calls them Little Planets. These are not traditional panoramas, they are full-fledged, all-encompassing shots of the immediate universe surrounding the photographer. When I first saw the image of the grain elevators I immediately went on the hunt for more… and came across this incredible image of the Olmsted-Richardson Center:


Gene is a prolific Buffalo photographer shoe has managed to document much of what has unfolded a the waterfront. He took photos of the last freighter grain scoopers (Buffalo River) in 2003 and documented the installation of the Canal Bridge in 2007. He has made a name for himself locally, and continues to press the envelope with technique, as you can see by his latest works. If you are interested in seeing more of Gene’s work, he has a show coming up at Starlight Studio and Art Gallery…
