Shadow Sundays

After brunch at Alero on the 20th, Jason, Theresa and I decided to check out a gallery around Logan Circle in DC. We went to the G Fine Art gallery, where there was a really interesting exhibit by Maggie Michael, All at Once. I thought the shadows cast by these records were really interesting and a perfect fit for Shadow Sundays.

If you are in the neighborhood, definitely check out this exhibit, which runs through January 3, 2009. Also, the same building houses Hemphill gallery and Adamson Gallery, which is where I saw my favorite exhibit that day: Photography by Lawrence Schiller (unfortunately, the exhibit is over on December 20th, but you can see some of his work here.) Below is my favorite photo from the Lawrence exhibit. It's a photo of Joanne Woodward and Paul Newman, taken in LA in 1967. Why do I like it? Because you don't really know the story behind the photograph...all you have (or I have) are questions: why is she sitting on a table? why is he leaning against the table? why are they back to back? did they have a fight? did something horrible happen? I wish I knew the answers!

Love the shadows of the records..You really got a few neat ones..Wonder why Paul/Joanne are sitting like that too..They look so cute..I think he was thinking things over and she was thinking about what he said..Now how do you like that explanation?
