Mark pokempner takes you on a journey through photographs
This Friday, July 29th, will be the official opening of the show "HERE AND THERE" by the well known Marc PoKempner and a chance to meet with Marc and friends over refreshments from 5:30 to 8:30 PM. It's a dazzling exhibit of color work from a photographer who spent many years exploring Chicago's Blues clubs in black and white.
Mr. PoKempner was regularly assigned by the Reader for projects about Chicago’s neighborhood blues clubs, homelessness and Harold Washington’s election as Mayor. His work has appeared in national and international magazines along specific subjects and as general photographic pieces. We invite you to visit his website for more information about Marc and a sampling of his photo journalism over the years: www.pokempner.net
In this show, he exploits the new possibilities presented by digital photography and printing, and explores places near and dear and distant and strange, in straightforward and also experimental interpretations.
Take a few extra minutes in our gallery or come by this Friday for a celebration!
