Looking Sideways @ Big Bear Cafe
Ten Miles Square and PixTour presents:
Photography by Cesar Lujan
Big Bear Cafe
Corner of 1st and R Streets NW
Saturday, November 8
6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
About the exhibit: Cesar Lujan takes images that present a bit of a role reversal. Rather than landscapes and settings merely providing context for people and their actions, Lujan sees the idle presence of people creating the context for what becomes the real main characters here: impressive architecture and unusual urban scenes. (If Lujan's work looks familiar -- it should. He was also selected to present a short series of photos in our Fotoweek DC exhibit at Fight Club. Come to Big Bear for the full perspective on this talented photographer's work.)
About Big Bear Cafe: When it opened in July 2007, Big Bear became a hub of the burgeoning Bloomingdale neighborhood. It caught our attention as a supporter of local arts, and Ten Miles Square is now proud to be exhibiting its second photography show there. Did we mention they make a fantastic cup of joe?
About PixTour: This program for Fotoweek DC was conceived by Molly Ruppert of Warehouse. She contacted 50+ venues all over DC (bars, restaurants, clubs) and worked with Ten Miles Square to match each one with a local amateur photographer. The rest of the exhibits won't be up until the festival starts on November 15. We'll have a web site with more information about PixTour soon.
