The exhibit also features a selection of photographs (many never seen before in public) documenting Torrente Ballester’s time in Albany and his unique way of using photography as a tool for his creative process. As part of the exhibit, visitors will be able to listen to GTB teaching classes at what was then called the State University of New York at Albany.
