Recent Photography in Salem

I went to the funky coffee house, Front Street Coffee shop this morning and had a cup of tea while checking out the new exhibit of twenty photos by Brent Clarke, a photojournalist who lives and works in Boston. Some of the black and white images depict startling moments of intimacy during political protests and rallies, where it is hard to tell which side people are on (pro-choice or antiabortion, in favor of gay marriage or not) because the most striking aspect about them is that they're all human. One of the most beautiful photograph is that of a torn United States flag flying against an ominous stormy sky. Why is the flag torn? Where is it flying? Why would a torn flag be left to fly?

His photos are at Salem’s Front Street Coffee throughout the month of February.




Beauty is Balm to the Soul, Elias Andrinopoulos' photos of Greece, is opening on Friday February 12 at 5:00, Starbucks, 211 Washington Street, Salem.
