Leitmotif by Bud Green Opening
With a selective eye and a photographic journal spanning decades, this collection of paired photographs by Bud Green connects seemingly disparate ideas. A consistent use of line, shape & tonality creates a new narrative when paralleled. Profits from the show are donated to Savannah Philharmonic.

About the event
A leitmotif is a short, constantly recurring musical phrase associated with a particular person, place, or idea. It is closely related to the musical concepts of idée fixe or motto-theme.
Bud Green’s passion for photography began in 2005 while sifting through some old family photos he inherited from his grandfather. Struck by the power of the grainy black and white images, his exploration of the medium led him to the pioneers of 20th century photography, and eventually to taking photographs of his own. He bought a Leica 35mm camera and pursued his craft while working his day job as a software developer. Though he has no formal training in photography, the geometry and precision of his compositions are evidence of his study of architecture.
Bud’s work has been exhibited in Chicago, Illinois, Iowa City, Iowa, and Savannah, Georgia. His work has also been featured in Popular Photography magazine.
A 30 year resident of Chicago, Bud and his wife Lynn now live in Savannah in a home they bought on their first visit to town.
