"Alleys and Ruins"
Long after dark, photographer Xavier Nuez ventures into bleak urban settings, seeking out their elusive splendor. The images are shot mostly at night using a 50-year-old Hasselblad film camera. During the 10- to 30-minute exposures, Nuez walks around with various (colored) lights and shines them on different parts of the scene, adding color and texture to the typically drab locations.
Reception: Thursday, September 19, from 4:30–6:30 p.m. Artist's talk at 5:00 p.m.
