I am participating in two photography exhibitions opening this week on Friday March 18. I plan to be at Mirror to the World first and head over to the Flash opening later.
Mirror to the World
Documentary Photography 2011
Opening Reception Friday March 18 6-9PM
PhotoWorks Gallery, 7300 MacArthur Blvd
Glen Echo Park, MD
Tenement Fire, Bushwick Brooklyn
Included in the show are Michael Borek’s studies of an abandoned lace factory, Claudia Copeland’s images from the Folger Consort, and Mark Parascandola’s haunting photographs of abandoned buildings. Rachel Eisley documents a tenement building fire in Brooklyn, and Erica Wissolik has photographed the Carrie Furnace — one of the last great steel mills in Pittsburgh. Finally, Eric Zhang offers up “Rituals” — three slices of life from the DC area.
“This year’s exhibit follows in a great tradition, a true celebration of narrative photography. It will, as always, be a hell of a show.” Frank Van Riper, March 2011
