Poquito de photo
Photo-Eye Gallery’s (376-A Garcia St.) First Wednesday Salon spotlights a group of artists who seem to share a sense of adventure — whether serious or purely for fun. Documentary photographer Jason Jaacks’ latest work portrays the struggle of the Tohono O’odham — an indigenous people who have historically occupied land in the Sonora Desert, extending from Mexico into southern Arizona and the southwestern corner of New Mexico. Brandon Soder’s fascination with the U.S.-Mexico border is reflected in his Stations of the Cross series, which uses
lucha libre wrestling costumes and college fashion in the United States to cast a familiar religious ceremony in new light. Fulbright grant recipient and documentarian Alexandra Huddleston discusses her photographic projects in Timbuktu and along the Camino de Santiago, a pilgrim’s route that runs from southern France to Finisterre, on the Spanish coast. The artists are available for a meet and greet at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 7; the salon runs from 6:45 p.m. to 9 p.m. Admission is free. For more information, call 988-5152, Ext. 114.
