Alan Strassman is a fine art photographer. His work has been exhibited in many venues around New England and is owned in private and corporate collections. Like renowned photographer William Eggleston, Alan was born in 1939 and, like Eggleston, he took his first photographs with a Brownie Hawkeye ten years later. A serious amateur for most of the past six decades, it is only in the past several years that he has exhibited and sold his work. Recent exhibition venues include group shows at the Attleboro Museum, Brush Gallery, Pawtucket Arts Collaborative, Cambridge Art Association, and a one-person show at the Weston Library. His publications include Signs of Life, a brief illustrated history of photography and New England Mill Towns, contemporary images from the birth place of the industrial revolution in America.
