SUMMIT, NJ -The Summit Free Public Library and the Visual Arts Center of New Jersey have collaborated to bring “Vantage Points,” an collection of photography by Linda Jacobs in 'The Gallery' at the Summit Free Public Library. The exhibition runs through May 31.

Of her work, Jacobs said, “Capturing the movement of light and shadow from an uncommon vantage point reveals the beautiful and unexpected within the familiar. The texture of a building facade, seen from below, is reminiscent of the wings of a bird. An unfinished building, viewed from within, frames a familiar skyline as an abstraction. The underside of a bridge reveals girders and utility cables exploding in a celebration of line and color."

She adds, "The goal of my photographs is to make these moments tangible. By seeking out unusual vantage points, I discover occasions of visual delight, expressed in color, pattern, light and shadow.”
