Vladimir Antaki: 'The Guardians'

From the event description:

For his series 'The Guardians,' Vladimir Antaki traveled across Europe, the Middle East, and America, photographing and interviewing shopkeepers or 'guardians.' These guardians are keepers of what Antaki terms 'urban temples,' unique spaces which, in an age of cookie-cutter, corporate shops, hearken back to an earlier mode of urban life. Antaki creates portraits of these guardians that invite viewers to connect with the beauty of these often forgotten spaces that are the heart and soul of every city.

When: Thursday, May 2, 12 p.m.
Where: Blue Sky Photography Gallery, 122 N.W. Eighth Ave.
