Birds of the Fox River Valley – Photography of Ira A. Marcus

Wednesday, February 19, 2020
Elgin History Museum, 360 Park Street, Elgin, IL

FREE for Members / $3 for guests
Visit this new temporary exhibit through May 2020 that features 30 framed photographs. Included in this collection are birds of prey, birds that make their homes along waterways, and common backyard varieties. Ira’s approach to photography is to slow down to absorb the beauty of the natural world, and use the magic of photography to share his vision with others. His photos have been exhibited at local libraries (including the Fox River Valley Libraries) and air frequently on NBC5 Chicago News Weather Photo segments.
Each photo represents a special moment with the bird, but when viewed all together as a collection, the beauty and strength of these majestic creatures shines through.
