Will van Overbeek: 24 Summers at Barton Springs

May 29 - June 27, 2020

Nothing says, “SUMMER” better than sun, water and people in bathing suits. Rolling Stone Photo Editor Laurie Kratochvil suggested that Barton Springs might be a good spot to shoot. Austin photographer, Will van Overbeek, spent the day there and ultimately returned to take color pictures every summer for the next 23 years. This exhibition originally debuted at the Austin Museum of Art in 2007 and have now been added to LMFA’s permanent collection. Overbeek, studied with University of Texas photography giants Garry Winogrand and Russel Lee.
