SATURDAY, APRIL 9 from 7-9pm
ARTIST TALK WITH SCREENING OF FILM
MONDAY, APRIL 18 at 7pm
Photographers usually venture out into the world to find their subjects. This time, a group of Syracuse area photographers allowed the world to come to them. Their portraits of service providers, delivery people, and sales people, along with brief biographical details, peer inside the intricate connections and communities of the Syracuse area.
Curated by Ben Altman and Syracuse photographer Bob Gates, the project challenges us to think about the many ways in which we depend on one another for the necessities and comforts of our daily lives. It also creates a portrait of the home life of each photographer.
Altman and Gates have based their exhibition on work that Altman, who now lives in the Ithaca area, began in Chicago nearly ten years ago. The economic, class, and ethnic questions that his work raises inspired us to do this in our own community.
