Bob Avakian and his wife Gail visited Martha’s Vineyard for the summer in 1973 and it has been home ever since. Trained in architecture, engineering and building he works as a custom homebuilder. Photography, once his hobby, has now become his passion. As his photographic vision has evolved he has been drawn to the natural landscape and an exploration of night photography.
He has been the recipient of numerous awards. Most notably he is a Photolucida Critical Mass top 50 Photographer. Both Dodho Magazine and Vineyard Style magazine have published reviews of his work and he has been featured on the popular photo site Peta Pixel as well as numerous photo blogs.
Bob shows his work on Martha’s Vineyard at The Granary Gallery and in Boston at The 555 Gallery. ClampArt in New York also carries his photography. His work is in the collection of The Boston Athenaeum and the Martha’s Vineyard Hospital’s permanent art collection. His website is bobavakianphotography.com.
