Howdy, friends! I got back from Louisville, Kentucky a few days ago. The day after I arrived the city caught a nasty windstorm left over from Ike. The winds were insane and everyone was without power, road access, etc. A lot of destruction there. It was one of the worst storms the state has ever seen. Needless to say, I took a lot of pictures from the storm damage. Other than that, I visited Lexington and traveled around to various areas to photograph. My models were unable to shoot due to the storm, so I had to find other subjects.
The night after I returned there I went to see Sigur Ros at the Pavillion in Boston. They were amazing. I was still a little peeved I couldn’t get a press pass in time to shoot them playing live. It was a true pleasure to have seen them regardless, so for that I am thankful.
While I was in Kentucky, I saw a lot of stuff. One thing I highly reccomend is this Gallery/Hotel called 21c. It has some amazing artwork an interesting interactive pieces. I am not a fan of James Baker Hall in the least, but he has two full rooms of work, one entitled “Photo/Synthesis.” If you’re a fan of his, check it out. There’s plenty to see there. 21c
There was also a great Play I checked out called 43 Plays for 43 Presidents. It was hilarious, informative, and was extremely entertaining. In light of the upcoming election, I’d reccomend that as well.
Anyways, below are some photo’s from Louisville after traveling around. There are also some photo’s of the destruction from the city too. Enjoy!
