"CASA" PORTRAITS 2010 - 2012 - May 8 - 11, 2012

Russell Monk
Opening Reception: Tuesday May 8, 6-10PM

 


"Over the last couple of years I have been making "daylight' portraits of my neighbours and people who pass through my life - in the courtyard of my house that is on the outskirts of San Miguel de Allende in central Mexico.
My subjects were almost kind and generous, allowing me to fit them into my visions of who they I thought they were and the mystery that is Mexico - a mysteriousness that to me seems to seep from the country, it's past and the very pores of it's people."
