with the opening

The Spencer Gallery
The D. B. Weldon Library
Western University
London, Ontario, Canada

which will run from Monday, April 4, 2016

The show is entitled 

Six Pairs of Pairs
by Walter Zimmerman

and consists of twelve photographs taken since 2010 with emphasis on nature photos but also including other subjects.

Here is a brief bio, written for this exhibit:

Walter Zimmerman was born in Brookline Massachusetts in July 1947. He and his wife, Linda, moved to London Ontario in August 1969 following their graduations from Brandeis University with Walter’s BA in economics and Linda’s in Fine Arts. Walter began his photographic hobby in 1964 during a six-month trip to Israel and continued with more serious photography, using twin lens and single lens reflex cameras for candid yearbook work while at Brandeis. Five of his photographs taken as the photographer of Temple Israel of London appeared in an issue of Reform Judaism magazine which at the time had a circulation of 300,000 across North America. Walter studied library science at the School of Library and Information Science at Western, receiving his Master of Library Science in 1971. He began his 38-year career as a librarian at Western, beginning as Administrative Assistant to the University Chief Librarian but mostly serving as a Reference Librarian, Online Services Librarian, and a Subject Librarian from 1974 until his retirement on January 1, 2010, as Librarian Emeritus.  Linda and Walter have two children and three grandchildren who live on both coasts of the United States, providing many opportunities for grandparenting and also for photography.
