I heard Ashley Hunt, the photographer, interviewed on KUHF radio yesterday and I can’t wait to see his show, “Notes on the Emptying of a City.”
Ashley went to New Orleans with a service group from California after Hurricane Katrina; he was on the team to document the aftereffects of the storm. Instead of doing the usual gallery show, he has put together a performance piece that integrates images, interviews, and perspectives about the experience.
In the radio interview, he sounded thoughtful, insightful, and clear about his work and how/why he was doing it…an aware artist with purpose.

Tonight, Eldorado Ballroom, 7:00 PM (2310 Elgin Street)…sponsored by Project Row Houses, Houston.
