Phillip Jones: Selected Photographs

Exhibition: November 5 – December 20, 2013
Artist Reception: Wednesday November 13, 5-7pm

Currently on view at the Garner Center, Phillip Jones’ investigations of transition, construction and progress in the urban landscape. Phillip’s ethereal and energetic scenes take use across America and Europe stealthily by night, leaving no stone unturned. His squares, subtle yet poignant, respond to the relationship between architecture and societal values. The often overlooked or undiscovered vantages are magically brought to life through operatic silver gelatin prints not to be missed!
