A solo show of new work by photographer Erwin Olaf will feature two bodies of work inspired by Olaf’s travels. Dawn & Dusk is a series of dramatic black & white and color photographs contemplating race, history and form, and the simultaneously exhibited series Hotel, a group of images evoking feelings of boredom and loneliness within the sameness of hotel rooms.

Also exhibited in the exhibition will be photographer Amy Stein’s Stranded, a series of portraits of stranded motorists. Where she describes finding subjects as a matter of chance and every encounter tense because of the unusual circumstances of the interaction and the inherent danger of the roadside environment.
