The Auditorium Corridor now displays photographs by Dave Montgomery in the theme of “Openings.” The shots were selected from Dave’s portfolio mainly to include doors and windows while allowing other “openings” into the display; the manhole sneaks in through the definition of openings. The style of the display diverges from earlier Collington shows by Dave in that this is pure photography, in distinction from the previous Collington displays in which photos were heavily edited (some say manipulated) after the camera shutter clicked.
A curious feature of the photograph scenes is that only one (captured just off Washington’s Dupont Circle) was taken in America. The international selection was not intention; it merely reflects the observation that Dave’s camera is more likely to be out while he travels.
Another observation of the show is that it has been interpreted as a show of architecture, a subject of its own importance. While an observer can interpret any picture in terms of its broad architecture, the intended focus is in the opening.
The show is scheduled to be up until December 15. A contribution from any sales will go to the Residents Association.
