A new photo exhibit at the Bourne-Schweitzer Gallery in New Albany, Indiana will celebrate and showcase the work of the late local photographer, Willi H. Koesters, who died in 2020. Koesters spent 40 years of his life behind a camera, capturing stunning images of national parks, nature scenes, and still life. The gallery will display 19 large format framed images of his most iconic works. Willi H. Koesters was born in Neusharrel, Germany, and immigrated to Louisville as a young child. He developed a love and talent for photography in his young adult years; continuing to hone his skill for the rest of his life. Koesters’ subject matter included still life, human interest, photojournalism, portraiture, and product photography; however, his greatest love was photographing nature, particularly landscapes. His styles ran from lifestyle to documentary to traditional posed and on to artistic. He was particularly fond of infrared technology to produce other-worldly landscapes. He was also a fan of the Ansel Adams black and white technique, using this skill to win photography awards over the years, including the Water Tower Annual and the Kentucky State Fair photo contests. As Koesters passed away at the beginning of the pandemic, the family could not hold a funeral service at that time, therefore this show is also serving as a celebration of life. The Koesters family would like to express their profound appreciation to the Bourne-Schweitzer Gallery and to all visitors to this show. The exhibit and reception are free and open to the public. Please join us to meet the family and enjoy this wonderful exhibit. To schedule an appointment contact, Julie Schweitzer, at 502-649-3320 or julie@artseed.art.
