On the Road

John Custodio

 

Interesting photographic opportunities sometimes lie not far from the road. This exhibition of 13 framed 16 x 20 inch prints is part of a collection of photographs Custodio made over the years on several road trips across the U.S. His travels took him to the Midwest, the national parks of the Southwest and California.

Raw Materials

Aviva Baharav

 

Observation propels Aviva Baharav’s rhythmic photographs. Through her lens, ordinary forms and objects become seas of moving shapes, giving daily life a dimension of mystery and changing the way we perceive our surroundings. Baharav also probes reality’s subjectivity. Context changes our perception and seemingly insignificant objects, like raw materials, become alluring when Baharav imbues their nuances with a cadenced beauty.
