Louie of Gadsden – Amy Martin

The Living Subject is a group exhibition featuring the work of three Arizona-based photographers: Lisa Langell, Don Lawrence, and Amy Martin.  In early April 2017, Hidden Light hosted a portfolio review open to all photographers in the region to have their work evaluated by professionals in the field.  The reviewers then chose three photographers from that group to be featured in the exhibition currently on view in the Hidden Light Gallery at CCA.  The Living Subject presents a selection of prints from each of the three artists, depicting landscape, wildlife, and portraiture, demonstrating three different approaches photography, through their choice of subject and use of technology.

The Living Subject is open through July 8, 2017. The exhibition is produced by the Flagstaff Arts Council in partnership with the Hidden Light LLC.
