BOCA RATON, FLORIDA  – The Boca Raton Historical Society has announced a special summer exhibit, Dual Perspectives: The Photography of Courtenay Gilbert and Peter Lorber, from July 3 through September 27, 2024, at The Schmidt Boca Raton History Museum, 71 North Federal Highway.



Let the dual begin! Two photographers, two perspectives.

Peter Lorber and Courtenay Gilbert are two Boca Raton-based, world-renowned photographers who have been collaborating for more than 25 years. Through their lenses, they have captured breathtaking locations in the United States and around the world. Their photography expeditions have taken them to various countries, including the Czech Republic, Cuba, Iceland, and several US national parks. What makes their work unique is that despite being in the same location, their captured images are distinct in their own way, reflecting their individual perspectives and photographic styles. Their photography provides a glimpse into their artistic vision and creative process, which is a treat for photography enthusiasts. 

This exhibit will showcase their work and provide an opportunity to explore the different ways in which they interpret their surroundings. It highlights how they select photo-worthy moments, capture them, and present them to the audience in their unique style. It's a fascinating example of how two photographers can see the same thing differently and create something truly remarkable.

Peter Lorber is the Founder, CEO, and Master of Photography at Custom Photo and Framing in Boca Raton. He has built his reputation as a leading world-renowned panoramic photographer. Over the years, he has created his beautiful scenic Images using a Fujifilm 617 camera, Kodak Cirkut camera, Roundshot 360° rotational camera, and many more.

Lorber’s work has appeared in multiple publications and has been exhibited worldwide. He is also a sought-after lecturer and judge on the photography circuit.

Courtenay Gilbert, Vice President of Operations and Master of Creativity at Custom Photo and Framing, where she has worked for 30 years.  Her career as a photographer began at the age of ten when she first stepped foot in a darkroom.
