Argument over on-line fine art exhibition: Marc Silberís Photography, shows his dynamic range and visual impact, but were some photos really taken when he was 13?


Marc Silber has been a professional photographer for 40 years whose images have left a durable impression. Silber studied photography at the celebrated San Francisco Art Institute, but this was where he put polish on his already prolific and memorable work. The startling fact is that he began selling and publishing his work when he was only 13. Some of his most astonishing and memorable shots shown in his exhibit are from that era. Silberís exhibition covers a full range from action shots, to candid portraits to landscapes. His series of shots from Sierra Madre Mexico gives us a rare glimpse into the remote mountain region above Mazatlan, days by jeep and foot. He tells of the people being so grateful for the medical help that his project brought that he was allowed to photograph and capture their life in a completely intimate manner, reminding us of the work of Henri Cartier-Bresson. But then looking at one of Silberís next images one is reminded of Ansel Adams or one of the Westons, showing the tremendous range and depth of his work.

As one visitor to the exhibition put it, ďThese are beautiful photos and really evocative... even those which depict places Iíve never been to. I can see your affinity to Ansel AdamsÖĒ

Silberís exhibit is natural and refreshingly void of the hyperbole we have seen encroach on photography in our digital age. His work seems as though he were having a causal conversation and somehow managed to record his own impression without the artificial use of a camera. When we asked him about this Silber laughed and said, ďisnít that the whole point of photography?Ē
