A current exhibit at Ohio University-Chillicothe by faculty member Ken Breidenbaugh has been extended to May 7, beyond its original end date of April 30.
“Chicago: The Loop” includes nearly 70 photos that Breidenbaugh took while on a trip to the Windy City in mid-March.
The photos offer an authentic, candid view of Chicago.
“The subjects are meant to be straight-forward arrangements of architecture, structures, colors, textures and light that I find appealing in a city whose constant visual complexities – and simplicities – are so alluring,” Breidenbaugh, assistant professor of comparative arts, art history and theater, said in his artist statement that accompanies the exhibit.
Toward that end, Breidenbaugh allows only his camera to come between the city and those viewing the photos.
“There is no Photoshoppping, cropping or other manipulation. The result is reasonably close to those first through-the-lens views,” he said.
