Bob Logsdon: A Photographer's Journey


Sauk Valley Community College Hosts Visiting Artist Bob Logsdon October 18-November 30

The Sauk Art Gallery proudly presents the works of visiting artist Bob Logsdon, October 18-Novemebr 30 on the SVCC Campus.

Logsdon is an accomplished landscape photographer, residing in Grand Detour, Illinois. Logsdon is an extensive traveler who documents his traveling experiences in his pictures. It is through photography that Bob introduces the viewer to his endless and challenging imagination.

Over the last four decades, Logsdon has photographed his children, grandchildren, and now great grandchildren. It was during his vacations that he became interested in landscape and underwater photography. His travels throughout America provided him with an intimate insight into his subject and surroundings and peaked his desire to capture it in photographs.

In 2004, after Logsdon retired, his wife Colleen, the first director of the fine art gallery, The Next Picture Show, in Dixon, IL, encouraged him to exhibit his photography. Logsdon has been accepted in many juried art exhibitions and received many awards.

Logsdon believes that photography is about much more than making good pictures. For Bob, photography captures the essence of a subject that lives in the photograph and moves the viewer to another time and place.
