Slow: The Long Exposure Photography of Justin P. Goodhart


The Cultural Arts Coalition presents “Slow: The Long Exposure Photography of Justin P. Goodhart” with an opening reception on Friday, March 31stfrom 7-9PM at the Studio Around the Corner 67 Main Street in Brewster, NY. This event is free and open to the public.


“SLOW” is an exploration of long exposure photography and is comprised of works made over the last year or so. The show features exposures of anywhere from 1/2 second to over an hour in length. Justin grew up in the Adirondack region and has always had a strong connection to the land and the beauty of the world around us.  Following college and starting a career in New England he returned to New York in 2009 and currently lives in Patterson.  Mr. Goodhart explains, “After having been a casual photographer for many years it was the beauty of the Hudson Valley that served as inspiration for me to start taking photography more seriously.”


There are 3 major reasons Mr. Goodhart would choose to employ a slow shutter speed:

  1. To capture what the human eye can see, but the camera cannot, except by the use of a slow shutter.
  2. To capture what the human eye cannot see but that which the camera can by extending the exposure.
  3. To capture a sense of the passing of time verses a single moment.


As patrons view the images in the show, they are encouraged to think about these three principles.  Each photograph has the shutter length identified, so they can think about how using a slow shutter has helped to create them. To find out more about Justin P. Goodhart, visit
