PhotoTapas: "A History of Fresh Food in the Desert" Friday, January 17
This Friday, "A History of Fresh Food in the Desert" opens at Modified Arts in downtown Phoenix. The exhibition will "span nearly the entire modern lineage of farming in the state of Arizona" through work from three local photographers. Jeremy Rowe contributes a series of early 20th century, pre-industrial archival images that reveal the foundation for Arizona's future growth. Images from Gina DeGideo come from the collection of Howard Morrison, son of Arizona farmer and photographer Marvin Morrison, and show the factory-oriented, large-scale work of Arizona in the middle of the 20th century. Finally, Heather Gill will bring photos that showcase locally grown foods today. The opening reception will be from 6 to 9 p.m.
