Archway Gallery presents Sidewalks opening reception
Archway Gallery presents Sidewalks, featuring photographs by Fikry Botros. The exhibition is part of the city-wide "Participating Spaces," celebrating the FotoFest 2016 Biennial.
The photographs in this exhibit were taken by the artist as he explored daily life on the sidewalks of various cities around the world. Botros’ favorite photographs are those where the scene is unperturbed and uninfluenced by his presence. He enjoys the challenge of having little, or no, control over the lighting, the action or the angle. Botros tends to prefer black and white when photographing people but he also uses color when it complements the subject. Three of the photographs in this exhibit have been selected by National Geographic as part of the “Daily Dozen” and “Photo-of-the-Day” features.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through May 5.
