Hal Gould’s influence on photography days in Colorado goes back a few decades, and it goes on to wield itself in a brand new exhibit in downtown Louisville which includes work by masters like Edward Weston, Ansel Adams, Jerry Uelsmann and Philippe Halsman.

The exhibit called “The Long Road: A Photographic Journey,” is on showcase at the Dona Laurita Gallery as part of Month of Photography through 26th April. This is a commemorative retrospective that honors Gould’s legacy and work. Adams’ works and other authoritative artists are from Hal’s collection. Snapshots by Gould, who turned ninety five back in February, and several Colorado artists with connections to him, including Jude Sanchez, Dona Laurita and Loretta Young-Gautier also are in the show.

The gallery owner Laurita said that this is really a treasure. Gould’s career was subservient in promoting photography to fine art position in Colorado. In 1979, he started the Camera Obscura Gallery, and it became a important venue nationally for photography. It was placed within sight of Denver Art Museum that dismissed photography for many years. It was as if the photo gallery was ragging the museum to give photography its due.
