Photography exhibit to open at Garden of the Zodiac Gallery

Photographer Monte Kruse has traveled the streets of downtown Omaha in the dead of night for the last three years.

He has captured images of empty storefronts, restaurants and alleys, made beautiful and dramatic by glowing windows, rain, wind, fog and chill.

His photos are now in a new show called “Night Light,” opening Thursday at the Garden of the Zodiac Gallery in the Old Market.

This series of 24 color prints follows other Kruse endeavors featuring subjects such as nude models, agrarian life and Hummel Park.

Kruse took his downtown photos while walking or riding his bike.

He has a bachelor’s degree in fine art and English literature from Creighton University, where the Rev. Don Doll, a noted photographer, was his mentor. He has taken published portraits of director Sydney Pollack and writers Studs Terkel and Mike Royko, among other notable people. His work is in the collection of the Joslyn Art Museum.
