Afterimage Photo Gallery is celebrating its 40th anniversary with the 40 Exceptional Photographs exhibit through Tuesday, November 15. Ben Breard opened the gallery in the fall of 1971, and while Afterimage initially catered to local photographers, it quickly expanded to represent nationally known photographers.
Forty years is a long run, but you've only got ten more days to view this curated exhibition. 40 Exceptional Photographs takes a look at some of the images that have made their way through the gallery throughout the years, and while it wasn't an easy task (there are so many stunning photos to choose from) we at the Mixmaster thought it'd be fun to pick our five favorite photos from the exhibit. Click here for a full list of photos and make sure to let us know what your favorites are.
Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
