Frank Brueske

“A photograph by Frank Brueske is an instant of time captured forever”  Originally from Southeastern Minnesota, Frank  now resides in Pace, FL.  He has been has been capturing those “instant of times” for more than 60 years. His passion for photography came alive one evening as he watched a cousin make black & white prints in a makeshift darkroom.  His world would be forever changed after that night.

Specializing in black and white photography, his life’s journey has taken him around the world.  His photographs reflect the many different faces of life ranging from the French Quarter in New Orleans, the cobblestone streets of Prague to the shorelines of rivers and oceans. While his passion is black and white photography, he has started to capture the beautiful scenery of the gulf coast in digital color. His photographs have appeared world-wide.

In his retirement years he has produced three solo exhibit themes, “Vintage American on Parade,” “ Barnscapes and Other Scenes” and “Doorways of the French Quarter.” He is currently working on two others.

He develops his own film and makes all of his own black and white silver gelatin (darkroom) prints. He also prints his own black and white and color glicees.
