In the fall of 2013, Howard Goodman got this crazy idea to go for a walk: a 540-mile walk through some of the most breathtaking primeval landscapes, ancient cities, and near-ghost towns that still exist in our civilized world. El Camino de Santiago de Compostela has been a religious pilgrimage route—dating from about 800 AD—that traditionally begins in a village in the French Pyrenees and winds its way through Northern Spain, across mountains and plains ending at Santiago, Spain, near the Atlantic coast. In 1987 it was named a World Heritage Site.
Mr. Goodman will present his personal photography from the Camino, which was recently exhibited at Theo Ganz Studio in Beacon, New York. He will discuss his insights and the challenges he faced not only as a photographer, but also as a Pilgrim walking this ancient path while living out of a backpack for almost two months.
Howard Goodman has been on the faculty of Westchester Community College since 2007, and is a fine art and professional product photographer living and working in Peekskill. His art is in the collection of the Whitney Museum of American Art, The George Eastman House, the Pfizer Collection, and other private collections. He has an MFA in Photography from Rochester Institute of Technology and has been a visiting researcher, artist-in-residence, and lecturer in Kyoto, Japan.
