“A photograph by Frank Brueske is an instant of time captured forever”

Originally from Southeastern Minnesota, Frank  now resides in Pace, FL.  He has been has been capturing those “instant of times” for more than 60 years. His passion for photography came alive one evening as he watched a cousin make black & white prints in a makeshift darkroom.  His world would be forever changed after that night.

Specializing in black and white photography, his life’s journey has taken him around the world.  His photographs reflect the many different faces of life ranging from the French Quarter in New Orleans, the cobblestone streets of Prague to the shorelines of rivers and oceans. While his passion is black and white photography, he has started to capture the beautiful scenery of the gulf coast in digital color. His photographs have appeared world-wide.

Brueske, who is self taught, has produced 15 solo exhibits. His first one-man show was in l963.  In his retirement years he has created four solo exhibit themes, “Vintage American on Parade,” “ Barnscapes and Other Scenes,”  “Doorways of the French Quarter” and “60 Years of Black & White Photography-and A Splash of Color.”  His most recent was “Pensacola’s Krewe of Lafitte Illuminated Mardi Gras  Parade.” He is currently working on two others.

He has participated in several gallery nights in Pensacola and has donated his work for nonprofit organizations’ fundraising efforts.

For many years, he developed his own film and made all of his own black and white silver gelatin (darkroom) prints. He now uses a digital camera and prints his own black and white and color giclees.

Many people have asked him, “What do you like to photograph?” He responds, “Whatever the spirit moves me. I want to show people life as I see it.”
