UC Hosts Acclaimed Photographer’s Exhibit

Utica, NY (WIBX) – He’s been all over the world working for some of the biggest names in journalism, but for Larry Pacilio, his most recent art show is simply a moment in time.

Since embarking as a photo journalist in 1972 for WGBH-TV in Boston, Pacilio has worked for some of the biggest names in media, including the New York Times, Newsweek and Der Speigel. Later on, he worked as an architectural photographer, seeing his work printed in high-profile publications.

And now, for a second time, he is bringing his talent to Utica. Starting August 27th, “Il Tempo a Roma `e”, which translates into “The Time in Rome Is,” will open in the Edith Langley Barrett Fine Art Gallery at Utica College.

According to Pacilio, these photos are the embodiment of his life as a photographer and as an artist.

“There’s a past, present and future,” Pacilio said. “But, for a photographer, there’s really only a present. I can’t photograph what happened a hundredth of a second ago, nor can I photograph what’s going to happen a hundredth of a second in the future… I guess literally and figuratively, you’re taking a shot. You’re releasing an arrow when you trip that shutter.”

He also says his photos, taken during a trip to Rome, Italy, in May of 2010, are able to convey a plethora of emotions for those looking at them.

“You’re trying to produce work, that on some level, is going to communicate and resonate with the person looking at the photograph,” Pacilio said. “Quite frankly, I don’t care in a sense if people love it or hate it. As long as they’re feeling something.”

This is also the first time he has used an entirely digital workflow, and says the photos have not been manipulated. Pacilio’s work contains photos features “simple, unvarnished moments, not unlike those shot earlier with Nikons and Leicas loaded with Tri-X film.”

An opening reception will be held in UC’s Library Concourse on September 3rd, from 4-6:30 p.m., with musical guest Doc Woods.
