Photography Exhibit with
Sanaa Sondhi & Rich Pomerantz

The Loft Gallery at The Smithy welcomes an exhibition of photographic work by Sanaa Sondhi of Warren, CT and NYC, and Rich Pomerantz of Morris, CT. Guests can meet the artists, chat with friends and neighbors, and enjoy light refreshment.

Sanaa Sondhidivides her time between New York City and the northwest corner of Connecticut. She finds inspiration for her photography both in the busyness of city life, and the peaceful Connecticut countryside. Traveling with Sanaa involves many impromptu stops to capture the environment around her. Her current photography interests include explorations of visual social commentary and expressive portraiture.

Sanaa shoots on both analog and digital cameras as she likes the results of each in different situations. Being able to develop and process her images manually are an integral part of her creative process. She has taken photography courses at the International Center for Photography and the Cooper Hewitt Museum. Her work has received Scholastic Art awards in 2016, 2017 and 2018 and has been exhibited in the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Sanaa is a high school student who, at the age of fifteen, has found her passion in photography.

Rich Pomerantzhas been photographing people, products, food, farms, gardens for clients for 25 years and for personal fulfillment for much longer. He is equally comfortable in the executive suite with CEOs and lawyers, as he is in the barn, with farmers, as well as celebs, laborers, animals of all kinds and children, of all ages. Whether photographing private homes, interiors, products and people from all walks of life, clients see and appreciate Rich’s clarity and ease.

This seasoned pro with a meticulous eye for getting just the right angle, maintains an impressive list of editorial and corporate clients including Garden Design, Traditional Homes, Horticulture Magazine, Organic Gardening, National Geographic, The New York Times, Frommers Travel Guides, Sunset Magazine, Sierra Club, Cottages and Gardens, Scotts, White Flower Farm, Jones Public Relations, Cohn & Wolf UBS Warburg as well as many retailers, artists, designers and food purveyors.
