Jim Hildinger Black & White Photos to Benefit LTCC Haldan Art Gallery March 17-19 : Tahoe Arts and Mountain Culture
www.tahoeculture.com, 12 Feb 2011 [cached]
This exhibition and silent auction features the black and white photography of Jim Hildinger, a longtime resident of the Lake Tahoe basin.
Mr. Hildinger has donated 130 of his photographic prints to be auctioned as a benefit for the Haldan Art Gallery. These photographs will be on display for 4 days with a silent bid auction ongoing for the duration of the exhibition.
This South Lake Tahoe event will culminate with a closing reception including wine and food. Join the fun and bid on works of art while helping to support Lake Tahoe Community College's Haldan Art Gallery.
Jim Hildinger received a Master's degree in music education with a minor in natural sciences from Log Angeles State College. He played violin in the 7th Army Symphony in 1957 and has given numerous concerts in Reno and South Lake Tahoe. In 1958 he was employed as a music teacher by the Lake Tahoe Unified School District from which he retired in 1987.
Photography has always been a part of Mr. Hildinger's life. During the past twenty years he has become well-known in the Tahoe area for large black and white images that are produced with both medium and large-format cameras. The natural beauty of the Lake Tahoe basin has provided subject matter for the majority of Mr. Hildinger's photographic work. His interest in the natural environment along with his aesthetic and technical skill as an artist combine to create powerful images of the rugged beauty of our local environs.
The environmental philosophy of this artist is easy to determine from his frequently quoted statement that "the best possible thing that you could do for Lake Tahoe is to go away and leave it alone - the environment cannot compromise, it can only react". In his next breath, however, he will remind you of Frank Lloyd Wright as he dreamed of a future where, with proper planning, many more people could conceivably enjoy the natural splendors of the Tahoe area without additional environmental impact.
Please join us in celebrating the work of Jim Hildinger and supporting the Lake Tahoe Community College Haldan Art Gallery. Please RSVP for the reception at 541-4660 x344.

Provided to the Tribune Photographer Jim Hildinger has become well known in the Tahoe area for his large black-and-white images, several of which are featured in his book "Tahoe in Black & White."
...
With "Tahoe in Black & White," Hildinger has created a collection of classic, breathtaking black-and-white images of lakes, mountains, rocks, trees, trails and historical architecture in the Lake Tahoe Basin.He has included a few words about each photograph, often without revealing where the subject is located in the interest of protecting the spot from vandalism.
"It would seem that a successful photograph should stand by itself without the need for accompanying text.To fellow photographers, who fully understand the medium, that is likely to be true to the degree of their experience," Hildinger said.
"In this book, however, I would suggest that the viewer should first study a particular image; second, make some judgment about it; and lastly, read what I have said about it.If the two conclusions don't match, so much the better for the entertainment value of the exercise."
Hildinger is a lifelong resident of the Lake Tahoe Basin.He received his master's degree in music education with a minor in the natural sciences from Los Angeles State College.In 1958 he was employed as a music teacher by the Lake Tahoe Unified School District, retiring in 1987.
During the summer he is busy with a family resort.In the winter he sails his Catalina 27 on Lake Tahoe, carries his 40 pounds of cameras around the mountains of the Tahoe area, and enjoys the luxury of deciding what to do with his time.The environmental philosophy of the artist is easy to determine from his frequent statement that "the best possible thing you could do for Lake Tahoe is go away and leave it alone; the environment cannot compromise - it can only react."
