Exhibition: The Photography of Marsha Biscar

| 1 Comment

Marsha Biscar began photographing architecture and also the shipyards of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, when she was 8 years old. Her 6th grade teacher saw that she shared his love of photography and taught her how to use a 35mm camera and to develop her own photographs. She held her first exhibition at the age of 11.

Marsha went on to study photography at Milwaukee Center for Photography and Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design. At the Center for Photography she had the opportunity to study under master photographers Ralph Steiner, George Tice, Sam Able, Barbara Morgan, Walter Rosenblum, and Arthur Lazar.

Marsha's senior thesis consisted of photographing the traditional architecture of downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and the redevelopment of that area, which transformed the city into steel and glass. The project was published in Milwaukee Journal's Insight Magazine and exhibited at The Marine Bank, Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Photographs on display through the summer at Honnold/Mudd Library consist of the Milwaukee project and other photographs taken during that time in Wisconsin. Additionally, there are some photographs from her West Coast travels. Currently Marsha is working on a photography project of architecture and urban landscapes.

Marsha Biscar is the Services Desk Coordinator at Honnold/Mudd Library.
