Orinda Books, an independent local bookstore in the heart of Orinda Village, is hosting a new photography exhibit, "Orinda: Photographs by Jeff Heyman," a collection of six iconic photographs of the East Bay city of Orinda.
The exhibit runs through the end of February. There will be an opening reception Saturday, Feb. 4, from 3 to 4 p.m. at Orinda Books (276 Village Square, Orinda). The bookstore is open Monday - Friday, 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and is closed on Sundays.
First taking photography classes at San Ramon Valley High School in Danville, Calif., Heyman went on to earn a degree in Fine Art Photography from San Francisco State University. He studied under the photographers Catherine Wagner, Don Worth, Jack Welpott and Melanie Walker, and painters Robert Bechtle and Paul Pratchenko.
Heyman, a Bay Area native who lives in Orinda, is a freelance photographer for the Lamorinda Weekly and The Orinda News. His photographs are published regularly and his work has been featured in several photography shows. This is his second solo exhibit.
"Orinda: Photographs by Jeff Heyman" at Orinda Books features a dramatic photograph of the Orinda Theatre at sunset as well as striking landscapes of the scenic city’s hillsides.
