A New Identity
To the list of things Erykah Badu, Stephen Hawking and Amy Tan have in common, we can add this: they're all portrait subjects in photographer Stewart Cohen's book Identity: A Photographic Meditation From the Inside Out. For this collection of expertly lit portraits, Cohen traveled the world tracking down a grab bag of subjects who all, for one reason or another, fascinated him. From each he collected a hand-written answer to the same question: What makes you unique? Not all of us are as fascinating as fork-tongued, tattoo-faced Erik "The Lizardman" Sprague, or Bob Schneider--so Cohen's narrowed it down to his top 50. Meet the artist in person--and learn why Bob Schneider's so special--at Cohen's reception and book signing from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday at Photographs Do Not Bend Gallery, 1202 Dragon St. Call 214-969-1852 or visit pdnbgallery.com for more info.
Thu., April 8, 6-8 p.m.; Tuesdays-Saturdays, 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Starts: April 8. Continues through April 14, 2010
