I met Roberto De Luna when he agreed to be on an APA panel I was organizing. A gifted photo editor, Roberto has always been a photographer first and foremost. In this, his first show at the Michael Mazzeo Gallery, he presents "Lost Weekend," a show of his 100 Polaroids that delves into the idea of memory.
"Typically accepted as an accurate and truthful photographic record, the Polaroid print functions here as mnemonic device, a vernacular tool with which lost memories are re-experienced, reshuffled, and reconstituted into new mythologies."
There will be an opening reception on Thursday, November 18 from 6pm - 8pm.
