Connecticut based photographer Bill Gordon loves to travel and photograph exotic places and people. Following a twenty-year career as an investment banker, he spent fourteen years restructuring troubled companies including Lehman Brothers and managed the reconstruction of the New Orleans Public Schools after hurricane Katrina.
Since retiring from his business career in 2014, Bill has been able to more actively explore his passion for photography and was recognized with a prize in his first juried show at the University of CT. Last year, he held his first one-man show at the Keag River Gallery near Rockland, ME. He has exhibited at the University of Connecticut Gallery (Stamford), the Bendheim Gallery in Greenwich, CT, Bistro V on Greenwich Ave., The Ferguson Library, Stamford, The Townhouse Gallery, Stamford and the Carriage Barn Art Gallery in New Canaan, CT.
Bill has deep roots in coastal Maine. His immediate family has spent summers in a small coastal Maine village since before the turn of the last century and he grew up surrounded by his mother’s paintings of the region.
Bill is self-taught, has an eye for composition and captures the subtleties of early morning and late afternoon light along the coast as well as the magic created by the fog at dawn. “When I wake up and watch the sunrise illuminate the islands off-shore in glorious warm light accompanied by the first morning calls of the gulls, I understand why I need to return to Maine every year.”
