Three photographers team up for exhibition

Penelope’s Cafe, Books & Gallery in La Cañada Flintridge features the photographs of Burbank resident Glenn Newland along with Jerry Schneider and Mark Kennedy.

The three photographers each entered their work in a contest held by the Burbank Library in 2011 and decided to team up for this exhibition.

Jerry Schneider, also a Burbank resident, has over 30 years of experience, first honing his skills with Walt Disney Imagineers.

“We all carry ourselves from place to place and in the process, see others doing the same,” he said. “But the camera allows the capture of fluidity of that movement, and like the artist that creates a sense of motion in a rendering.”


Mark Kennedy formerly taught at the Burbank Adult School after moving to California from New Jersey in 1997.

He currently manages the printing department for the Arcadia Unified School District. His most recent exhibit took place at the Modest Fly Art Gallery in Tujunga.

Glenn Newland became hooked with photography after developing his first black-and-white film in a friend’s darkroom in Louisville, Ky.

Newland, whose background involves working in post-production labs for motion pictures and film coverage of NASA shuttle launches, arrived in Burbank in 2005.


In working with Technicolor, he has traveled to Rome and Madrid to review lab techniques. In his free time, he takes photographs.

The work of Schneider, Kennedy and Newland is on display at Penelope’s from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday at 1029 Foothill Blvd. The work will be on display through February.
