Gallery Talk & Reception
Join us for the opening reception of A Walk in the Park, photographs by Midtown member Andrew Cenci, on Saturday, February 26th from 4-6pm. A brief artist talk will begin at 4:30pm.
“A Walk in the Park and is a part of a large body of work that I have been making since 2014. It is a collection of black and white photographs made in the Shelby Park neighborhood of Louisville. This project began when I started shooting photos around my neighborhood to learn more about film photography because I had never taken any formal photography classes. Six years and over 1,000 images later, this body of work is as much a portrait of the neighborhood as it is a reflection of my photographic interests and growth. The images represent the dreams, natural beauty, and the harsh reality of endings that a neighborhood holds.”
