Bobby Baker Wins Award for Best Photograph

Photographer Bobby Baker is one of five award winners in Still Point Art Gallery’s latest online exhibition: Still Point V. His photograph, Lineup, won the award for Best Photograph or Digital Artwork. The striking image of eight trees evenly spaced against a cloudy background comes from his portfolio, Black and White, a collection of images of the New England coast.  Simple yet dramatic, Lineup presents a uniquer and emotive image of New England, much unlike the warm, colorful, tourist-alluring scenes that the region is famous for. Yet the image well-represents a more interior view of New England, known only to its long-time residents—simple and straightforward, yet profound.

Baker has a tremendous love for the sea and the coastline.  Although he has photographed many different coasts, including those in the Carribean, Mexico, and the Florida Keys,  Baker attests that the Cape Cod coastline really offers the most for him. His photographs have been featured in galleries, newspapers, websites, calendars, books, and are included in private and corporate collections. Bobby received national award recognition in the Fine Art Photography category of the prestigious 2012, 2011, and 2010 @e National exhibit at the Cape Cod Art Association that featured juried work from artists across the United States. His work was recognized with the Best Seascape Award at the Fine Art of Photography Exhibit at the Plymouth Center for the Arts, Plymouth, Massachusetts, and he was named Artist of Distinction in recognition of his work in the Still Point Art Gallery Still Point III exhibit. His work has been featured in the national art publication Still Points Arts Quarterly (Summer 2012) and by the Office of Massachusetts Bureau of Travel and Tourism. 

Bobby Baker is a juried artist at the Copley Society of Art in Boston, the Cape Cod Art Association, and Marblehead Arts Association.

Baker’s work, along with that of twenty-nine other artists, may be viewed until July 31st in Still Point Art Gallery’s online exhibition.
