Welcome to our twenty-seventh Bergen County Camera Customer Spotlight. This monthly posting features a customer who’s made an impression on us. They might have grown in their understanding of photography, gained a mastery of the craft and / or have become a strong advocate of our way of doing business in the world of photography. During the next month you will see this customer’s images displayed on our digital signs in store, in our emails, blog posts and social media.
Lori Ordover @lordover is our customer spotlight for the month of June. We hope you both enjoy and are inspired by this new addition to In Focus and look forward to your comments and suggestions. Below you will find a word from Lori, followed by some of her images in the gallery below.
Lori Ordover makes photographs that innovate formally while creating content filtered through her perceptions of the world around her. Recently, she has been experimenting with the scanner to create an ethereal kind of still life and, in a different series, using infrared film to make beachscapes that have an eerie otherworldliness. The daughter of an inventor and granddaughter of a Brooklyn matron who ran a children’s camp in the Catskills, she has also been inspired by her colorful life experiences to work with an extensive family photo archive and write a memoir to accompany it. She has studied at the International Center of Photography in New York and taken workshops at Los Angeles Center of Photography and Santa Fe Workshops. She grew up in New York City and graduated from Sarah Lawrence. After a successful career in marketing, she turned to photography to amplify her creative vision.
Her work has been included in exhibitions such as the ICP exhibition, #ICP Concerned, A World of Botanicals at the New York Center for Photographic Art. Her scanogram of fading flowers was included in the exhibition Still Life at the South x Southeast Gallery. International Photography Awards honored Lori with an Honorable Mention in 2019 for One Shot Street Photography (perfect place and timing). Ordover’s work has been published in Medium Format Magazine, (August 2019) and has been exhibited at The Gallery (Le) Poisson Rouge, and Umbrella Arts Gallery in NYC, and at Handwright Gallery in New Canaan, CT. She lives in Santa Monica, California, and has been a customer of Bergen County Camera for the past 15 years.
