Elliot Burg is a member of the Vermont-based “f/7” group of photographers and recently completed a solo show at the Kellogg-Hubbard Library in Montpelier of black-and-white photographs, “Sunset Park, Brooklyn”. This summer, images of senior track and field athletes from his collection “Transcending the Limits of Age” will be exhibited at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston.

“The Combination” presented the technical challenge of taking high-resolution photographs in the low-light, fast-moving setting of an indoor boxing match while at the same time composing the images in an artistic and compelling way.

Elliot lives in Middlesex with his wife, the artist August Burns. Feel free to contact him by email or by phone at (802) 272-4920, including for information on how to buy framed or unframed prints from this show. Visit Burg’s website HERE.
