This upcoming exhibition at Le Moyne is “Bravo/Brava: Performers Offstage and In Studio” showcases many of the more interesting and compelling subjects Marc Safran has photographed over the past decade.

Safran, a Brooklyn, N.Y. native, is a self-taught photographer who creates dramatic and editorialized portraiture and people photography at his studio at the Delavan Building in downtown Syracuse. Collaborating with local and visiting subjects in the theater, dance, music, fashion and performance, Safran works to engage his subjects to create dynamic images that utilize careful lighting and processing. His work has involved members of numerous dance companies and stage productions including visiting groups like Cirque du Soleil. He has exhibited his photographs here in Syracuse and galleries in the Finger Lakes area.

His work can be seen online at and on Instagram at @marcsafranphotography. Exhibit open during library hours:
