Joseph Amanzio is Library featured artist for Nov.
–November’s featured artist to be showcased at the Paso Robles City Library is photographer Joseph Amanzio of Paso Robles.
While an architecture student at the University of Florida, Amanzio took a photography course from noted photographer Jerry Uelsmann, where he learned the finer points of creative design composition and the influences of light and shade using black and white film. For 35 years, Amanzio travelled extensively in the US and Europe, recording hundreds of images for his lectures on architecture and urban design.
After retiring in 2005, he returned to the artistic and creative realms of photography. His award-winning digital photography, which includes a variety of subjects, demonstrates his love for architectural-like compositions in light, space, form and detail.
