Tom Mohr Photo Exhib
Colfax Branch Library
Saturday, Apr. 29
Why did Tom Mohr move to Colfax? That was the question everyone wanted to know.

To answer the queries, Mr. Mohr has designed an exhibit of his artistic photography called “Why I moved to Colfax.” The exhibit will run during from March 1-April 30 at The Center at Colfax Library with a special community reception set for Friday, March 10 from 5-7 p.m.

For the exhibit, Mohr provides a visual explanation of his relocation to Colfax through colorful landscapes and panoramas that are up to twenty four feet long and fill both rooms of The Center. Mohr also shares some of the many images he’s taken of community members including a gathering at Dave Morgan's 25th Annual Plow Day.

Tom Mohr was born in Rochester, NY and lived in New York City with his wife Jil for over 30 years. Graduating with a bachelor of fine arts in painting, Tom worked as a freelance photographer, as commercial photographer and in photography labs where he learned to separate colors and manipulate images. This work would later influence Tom’s images into a style he calls “painting with photography.” Tom spent his final working years in the art department of Barron’s Magazine retouching photographic images.

Then the unthinkable occurred. On September 11, 2001 the World Trade Center was attacked by terrorists and the world would never be the same. For Tom and Jil, who lived directly across the street from the Towers, their future was forever altered. Thankfully, they were away from home at the time of the attack but the tragedy caused them to rethink their lives and set a new course.

In 2002, the couple bought a fifth-wheel and began traveling in the United States and Canada. Tom photographed much of the journey which has taken them from Cold Foot, Alaska to Key West Florida, and also, a two year stay in Venice, Italy.

Finally, in 2016, the couple made a fateful stop in Colfax to photograph the Palouse. Tom invites you to his exhibit and also the community reception to learn why they stayed! For more information about the exhibit or reception, contact Whitman County Library at 509-397-4366 or Tom Mohr at 212-300-3694.
