Charlie Ferguson: Wasted Expressions
I love this guy's photography (Charlie Ferguson, here). We caught this show near the very end; if you live in Austin you have a chance to run over and see it at the L. Nowlin Gallery (here) before they take it down.
These are all pictures of dumpsters. The same damned dumpsters I see every time I ride my bike in Austin. The same damned dumpsters I totally ignore. But not anymore.
I like to think that "art" is anything that makes you look at your environment with a little more focus. Charlie's photos are beautiful art. You can't tell me the first image doesn't look like a magical night sky.
