Xpress intern Forrest McDonald attended a HATCH photography show. Here are a few of his photos of the event, and a short reflection on the experience.
I attended the HATCH photography event, held at Castell Photography http://www.castellphotography.com/Artist.asp?ArtistID=22862&Akey=RTJLS9E5. The scheme of the building was very dreary but light in a sense. The dark walls suited the blurry, haunting pictures — the works of Sylvia Plachy, Gerald Slota and Brie Castell, The images were mostly all lit up against a black or dark red wall making the pictures vivid, like windows to another place and time. When I saw Gerald`s albums, I was impressed with by how much emotion the pictures portrayed and by the eerie feeling of some of them. It was very cool to see a different perspective of art from a person as passionate as Gerald.
