Upon arriving in Peekskill, New York, several years ago, photographer Walter Rabetz launched on a multi-year, multi-project search for a way to embrace his new environment. Thus far this search has produced the following photographic books: The Bear Mountain Bridge, The Jewel of the Hudson; Dogway, The Walkway over the Hudson; Peekskill; and now, The Agora, The Peekskill Coffee House. Follow Rabetz for a cheerful tour of this mainstay of life in Peekskill, NY. A delightful and colorful view of this center for meeting, eating and greeting. Rabetz looks closely, with an artist's exquisite eye, at the architecture, furniture, knickknacks, retro postcards and posters, as well as some of the people who gather every day to talk, work, relax and eat and drink.
Walter Rabetz received his BA Degree from Brooklyn College and his Masters of Fine Arts Degree from The Rhode Island School of Design where he studied with Harry Callahan. His work is included in many collections and museums. He was the Head of the Art Department at The Loomis Chaffee School in Windsor, CT for 37 years. One of his current photographic projects is a series of photo-essays, together titled "Embracing Place." This is the fourth book in that series, which includes, "The Bear Mountain Bridge, The Jewel of the Hudson;" "Peekskill;" and "Dogway, the Walkway Over the Hudson."
