JOIN US JANUARY 10th 7-10PM! Opening Reception for “On The Beach” by John Soss.

“The first time I took a picture of objects found on the beach was for the sole purpose of showing my sister what I’d discovered that morning. That was seven years ago and I haven’t stopped since. What began as a series of stark, poorly lit, haphazardly arranged photographs of frosted glass evolved over time into more wide-ranging documents of things I’ve found and catalogued from beaches surrounding Lake Michigan. At this point over a thousand of these photos have been preserved as digital images, all shot with an iPhone. Once the picture is taken and posted I dismantle the layout, stash the good pieces, toss a bunch of it, recycle a portion and then start over again the next day. Nothing is permanent. Each day is a new discovery.” – John Soss
