Highway 71 Revisited

We've talked before about the fascination of photographs from strange places. (I've got to gte back to posting Hamilton photos). Barry Stone takes some really fascinating pictures all over the US, but lately focusing on Texas. Some of his photos are archived here. Others are blogged here.

He has a new show of photographs from Texas. "Klaus von Nichtssagend Gallery is pleased to announce the second solo exhibition of photographs by Barry Stone titled “Highway 71 Revisited.” An opening reception for the artist will be held Friday, January 11, from 7–9 PM. There will be a talk by the artist on Sunday, January 13th at 12 PM." I'm often struck by how empty Texas looks in photographs. Stone uses that to good effect.
