Opening: Friday Sept 13th 5-8 PM and Saturday, Sept 14th 2-5 PM

This  project Before Ever After  was less about documenting a dwindling 
species than it was an effort re-present them in a distinctly contemporary way. The images are to serve as a reminder that such animals are not mythical beasts, but earthly proprietors whose human tenants are both their greatest danger and only hope. Forsaking  novelty for personhood, the work argues  that animals are beings as deserving of the protections we expect ourselves.
