"CLOSE TO HOME"
SEPTEMBER 27TH - OCTOBER 24TH, 2019
The streets are an infinite playground. They're unforgiving. Full of love. And full of the unexpected. It takes years to master them and become one with the environment - but once you do, everywhere feels close to home.
Close to Home features twelve photographers well versed in documenting the streets and the people they are inhabited by.
Skaters, street legends, chaos, and characters- the show's mission is to portray an unfiltered view of what every skater or man/woman about town may come across in their everyday life. Featuring work from Atiba Jefferson, Remio, Sagan Lockhart, Ian Reid, Andrea Sonnenberg, Josh Terris, Linnea Bullion, JT Rhoades, Tino Razo, Sam Muller, Logan Hill, and Sam Smyth - the line up shows a diverse eye for the concrete jungle.
Along with exhibiting 40+ photos, the opening also featured a special screening of Ian Reid's underground classic Sex Hood Skate Video Tape which was decades ahead of its time in capturing the essence of inner-city subcultures.
