"The Last Bookstores: America's Resurgent Independents" -- Bryan David Griffith
Jan. 22 - March 4
"The Last Bookstores” combines photographs and interviews to document an industry during a time of historic changes. Griffith photographed independent bookstores old and new, large and small, iconic and obscure, in big cities and small towns across America.
In keeping with the theme of an industry in turmoil, Griffith photographed this project on large and medium-format film—a craft in jeopardy.
An opening reception with the artist will be held from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 5. The reception is sponsored by the Friends of the Phoenix Public Library.
"Monsoon on Metal" -- Davo Laninga
March 11 - April 15
Laninga's photographs capture the sense of awe and surprising beauty that can be found during the Arizona Monsoon.
An opening reception with the artist will be held from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on Friday, April 1. The reception is sponsored by the Friends of the Phoenix Public Library.
