Brabant Lenting February 2, 1946 - December 26,2021
As your friends pass away, you become more aware how vulnerable life is. My words can never say enough about Brabant. He is a giant in the arts. He is well respected. He supported and gave guidance in my photography.
I first met Brabant at Paul Henry's Art Gallery in Hammond. This is probably where most of us who read my blogs met him. The introduction I am sure came from Lou Shields, a great friend of mine and Brabant's.
We call him Maestro of Art in every sense of the word. I describe Brabant as a person having a big heart, and of strong opinion. I believe anyone who met him calls him a friend.
Brabant's work can be seen at the "Fernwood Botanical Garden" through January 2, 2022. From my understanding it was his wish that all who new him pay a visit.
A good intended outcome of my blogs is that I have the chance to relive the times. In this case my time with Brabant. It is not that I took the photographs that was important. What is important is that I was there with him.
