I am very excited to announce through the Chicago Photography Academy I am currently being feautured in a show at The Darkroom Bar in Chicago along with Erica Minix. I have five images on canvas that will be up until December so I urge you to check it out if you are in the area.
My series is entitled “Industrial Revolution” and I named all of my photographs after Metallica songs, get it? Industrial — Metal — Metal songs — Metallica? 🙂 The above image is called “Through the Never” which just seems so perfect to me.
We had our opening Friday night and it truly was one of the most amazing nights of my life. It felt so gratifying to see my work displayed like that and to receive such positive feedback from everyone who came out, from friends and strangers alike. I was glowing all weekend, really!
I want to share the blurb describing my series:
We live in a world of progress where a bigger, better, faster mindset and structures of steel, glass and concrete have replaced some of the intricacy and attention to detail that can be found in the molded ceilings and carved stone of slower times, or even the simplicity of an untouched wilderness. I wanted to show that steel and iron don’t have to be charmless and cold; they can still evoke a feeling of nostalgia, of being on the cusp of something great without sacrificing craftsmanship, that beauty can be found in the mass-produced and overlooked. However, Nature is always waiting to remind us that it can easily stage a revolution of its own.
Thank you for all of your support and if you can stop by, the photographs will be on display at The Darkroom Bar at 2210 W Chicago Ave until December 3rd.
