Ward Rus­sell Pho­tog­ra­phy, 102 W. San Francisco St. Suite 10, 505-231-1035 In See­ing the Un­seen + Two, pho­tog­ra­pher Ward Rus­sell uses for­mal black-and­white por­trai­ture for a series on work­ing-class peo­ple that presents his sub­jects in their ev­ery­day clothes, among the tools of their trades. “I try to see the Un­seen,” he writes, “those peo­ple who sur­round us ev­ery­day, pre­par­ing our food, car­ing for our lawns, build­ing our houses. We in­ter­act with them ev­ery­day, but we don’t have con­ver­sa­tions with them, we don’t know their chil­dren, their moms, their dads. We don’t re­ally see them.” The ex­hibit in­cludes se­lec­tions from Rus­sel’s series Dance In­dige­nous and Cac­tus Nights. The reception is Wed­nes­day, Dec. 21, at 5 p.m.
