Looking Sideways @ Big Bear Cafe

With Her Head in the Clouds by Cesar Lujan

If you love black & white photography as much as I do, you won’t want to miss the opening of Looking Sideways at Big Bear Cafe.  This exhibit features the beautiful work of Cesar Lujan, a local DC photographer who has an eye for minimalism, unique camera angles and use of space.  When it comes to his photos, the phrase “less is more” definitely comes into play.

Presented by Ten Miles Square, this exhibit gets a jump start on FotoWeek, which for some of us won’t come soon enough.  Here’s more on the exhibit:

“Cesar Lujan takes images that present a bit of a role reversal. Rather than landscapes and settings merely providing context for people and their actions, Lujan sees the idle presence of people creating the context for what becomes the real main characters here: impressive architecture and unusual urban scenes.”

The opening is this Saturday, November 8th from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.  Big Bear Cafe is located on the corner of 1st & R Street NW in Bloomingdale and looks to be a promising supporter of the local art scene.

Hope to see you there!
