Tim Franco Exhibit – July 1st – August 15th
Coming up in July we have Tim Franco exhibiting his unique style ofpinhole photography. “Light doesn't flood into a pinhole camera, itseeps in slowly, drawn as strands to be manipulated and woven into aspider's web or spun into cotton candy. The images in this collectiondo not only represent a fleeting moment but an entire experience, be ita journey, a song, a thought. Watching the pictures closely over aperiod of time hypnotically draws one into the scene until we canalmost perceive the movement it has captured.”

"The biggest gift from my childhood was Wanderlust. Travel, photography, superheroes and manga soon became my creative muse. In a nation of workaholics, in a materialistic society, in a profession of obsessive compulsives, the ability to set everything aside, leave your surrounding and simply absorb is the only way for me to keep from getting burn out on work, people and life in general. If travel indulges my curiosity, and photography introduces new colour palette, then design (in any form) definitely teases my creative wheel to keep on spinning" Vivid N. Savitri
