"WATER DAMAGE" OPENING FRIDAY 10/6
Autumn in Chicago is a time when melancholic memories catch us with the slanting sun, the return of boots and twilight settling over the broken asphalt. Daphne's photos are little jewel boxes of urban nostalgia from grainy black and white exteriors to quirky flashes of summer over the neighbors' hedge.
One part of the collection she calls the "Water Damage" series from droplets spattering the lens to strange liquid smeltings of faces and bodies submerged. . . . These are photos that evoke emotions, that pull you through time and the kaleidoscope of memory and what better time for a journey than now . . .?
Daphne offers no commentary or artist statement. The photos are left to speak for themselves, so linger a bit to savor the rich perfumes of these "fleurs du mal" of Chicago. For more information about her works, check out the curated blog by Kay Whitfield that features more of the photos you'll see. http://www.classicchicagomagazine.com/daphne-walsh-a-self-proclaimed-secret-photographer-of-chicago/
