Fresh A.I.R. Gallery cordially invites you to a dual photography exhibition featuring the artwork of Phil Adams and Matthew Ashton. Please join us for the opening reception on Wednesday, January 29, 2020 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Adams and Ashton's work will be on view at Fresh A.I.R. Gallery until March 6, 2020.
Phil Adams is a self-taught street photographer who has lived in the south end of Columbus since 1999. He also lives with depression and considers photography to be part of his treatment plan. Adams' work, Things We Throw Away: Redeeming the Refuse, examines trash in the neighborhoods surrounding South Parsons Avenue and the symbolism, humor, and questions it evokes.
Matthew Ashton is film photographer based in southeast Ohio. For him, the camera serves as a tool to communicate loneliness, abandonment, and everyday feelings that he cannot express with words. Street photography has been an integral part of his recovery.
