NILES - Riverfront Cafe's newest art exhibit will feature the photography of a Niles father and daughter.
The work of Harry Trescher, former Niles Daily Star photographer, and his daughter Karen Rubin, an international award winning photographer, will be on display in the cafe's gallery for the month of August.
Trescher, a Niles resident since 1953, worked as the staff photographer for the Daily Star from 1953 to 1957.
He eventually left the newspaper to become an All State Insurance agent, but his passion for photography never diminished.
As a hobby, taking pictures remained a big part of Trescher's life.
He has found Southwestern Michigan to be a great place for a photographer to call home.
Whether it be within city limits, at Fernwood Nature Center or along the St. Joseph River, he said our area is abound with picturesque subjects.
Rubin, a 1971 Niles High School graduate, now has her own studio in Denver, where she concentrates on photographing children and families.
Although her reputation was built on award winning images of children, the gallery will be showcasing photographs from her travels around the world.
Trescher said it is great to share a passion for photography with his daughter. They always look forward to their photographic outings together.
