DETROIT PHOTOS FEATURED AT HURON VALLEY COUNCIL FOR THE ARTS IN OCTOBER


Photographer Bruce Giffin explained the concept for his new show this month at Huron Valley Council for the Arts, Detroit: We’re Still Standing.


“Detroit is making a comeback after many years,” he said. “Even after all we’ve been through, we are ‘still standing.’” The gallery opening for the show is Friday, Oct. 6 from 7-9 p.m. Giffin, a 2011 Kresge Artist Fellow Scarab Club Gold Medal Scarab Club Silver Medal recipient, describes his work as “street photography.


He added, “I’m pretty sure I’m not the best ‘street’ photographer who has ever lived. I try to make up for my shortcomings with passion, hard work, and relentless curiosity. I have no agendas when I drive with my big black dog, Henry, into the city to satisfy my photographic cravings. I don’t shoot things to make them look good; I don’t shoot things to make them look bad. I simply shoot what I see....”


Gallery hours are from are from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesdays through Fridays and from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays Oct. 4-28.
