Wishing for a good street photography exhibit to go to, but don’t live in LA or NYC? Well, if you happen to find yourself in Oklahoma City, you’re in luck! There’s a great street photography exhibit going on now at the OKC Museum of Art. Here’s a bit from the event organizers:
Photographing the Street features the work of four American and Canadian artists who have chosen the street as their primary subject: Garry Winogrand, Mike Peters, Gary Mark Smith, and Ian Wallace. Each has a distinct approach and photographs the street for different purposes. These objectives range from capturing everyday American life to creating a global street photography portfolio that highlights the variety of cultures and similarities of urban life in various areas of the world to utilizing the street as a site for a meditation on modern life. Photographing the Street testifies to the richness of expression afforded by these most public of spaces.
“The richness of expression afforded by these most public of spaces” – ah, what a quote! If you find yourself in the heart of the midwest (Or is it south? The internet informs me there’s a bit of debate about the matter, though from where I’m sittin’ here in Florida, seems pretty midwest to me. Anywho…), get on over to the OKC MOA and check out some photos taken in slightly more urban America. Sounds like it’s an exhibit worth a visit.
