Gary Gowen was born in Billings, MT. He came to New York City after college to embark on a career in opera, but the magnificent vistas of Big Sky Country were indelibly stamped on his memory. They were the inspiration for his love of photography.
An avid landscape photographer since early childhood, he continued to pursue this interest along with his music. In his travels across the country and abroad for musical performances, his camera was a constant companion. His camera of choice is his Mamiya 7II, a Medium Format film camera that is able to capture the smallest details and the most intense color saturation. He has exhibited his works in shows locally and in Philadelphia.
Gary and his wife Norma have been residents of Teaneck since 1993. He continues to find inspiration in the natural beauty of New Jersey and New York.
