The exhibition will be on display at the White Rock Lake Museum (housed inside the Bath House Cultural Center) February 6 to May 29, 2010.

About the Exhibition
Art photographer, Dan Richard Barber (former writer for the Dallas Morning News and Dallas Times Herald), examines the beauty and enchantment of White Rock Lake and its neighboring communities with the aid of alternative photographic processes in this unique exhibition. In the 20-plus years that Mr. Barber has lived in East Dallas, he has always recognized White Rock Lake as one of his favorite places to visit. Like many others, he has walked its shores with his dog and bicycled its trails. In the exhibition, the photographer presents images of the lake and its natural and man-made structures, captured in infrared and other alternative photographic media. Because of the unusual development processes, the images have an eerie, “other world” feel—a view of the lake not commonly seen by those who love it.
