Detroit might consider Georgia’s Old Car City to be a rusting graveyard filled with its finest designs. But the camera’s eye is able to capture an artist’s palette of line, form, color and texture as those 4,000 vehicles are silently transformed by the passage of time and the changing of the seasons. Join Bloomington photographers Kendall Reeves and James and Sue Haverstock in an exhibition of images from Old Car City that detail and explore the beauty resulting from the intersection of industry’s design and nature’s demands. Included in the show are photos from the Southeastern Railway Museum, a playground of rail cars and engines from the days when rail travel unified and serviced all of America. These high dynamic range images highlight in depth the forms and colors that transformed the utilitarian into the captivating. Images from the Hood and Across the Tracks is an exhibition that promises to capture form, color and texture in ways that will excite and inspire. Using a variety of modern camera techniques, these three photographers have produced images that coax beauty from age and decay, and exceptional art from the ordinary.
Exhibit runs until July 26. Gallery is open Monday – Friday, 9 am – 5 pm, and by appointment on Saturday.
