I’m not much of an art critic, but earlier tonight I went to the opening of a photography exhibit that was, uh, freakin’ awesome.
Gay Ribisi takes underwater portraits in her swimming pool (of things like a girl writing in her journal), and the results feel futuristic and floaty and magical. My photo of a photo does not do the show justice — they are really amazing. If you’re going to be anywhere near Gallery Saint Germain before December 19th, I strongly recommend checking out this exhibit. It makes me wish I had a place to put one of those photos, and the money to bring it home.
If you go to her website and click on “Press” you can watch a short video about her work.
