Corey Arnold: Fishing With My Dad 1978-1995 at Ampersand Gallery, PortlandJuxtapoz // Wednesday, 12 Oct 2011
Corey Arnold, the cover of our Juxtapoz Photography book and well-known photographer of various fishing boats and regions of the world, will open a special exhibition, Fishing With My Dad 1978-1995, featuring photographs by his father, Chris, at Ampersand Gallery and Fine Art Books in Portland on Saturday, October 15.
The series of photos is part of Corey's limited-edition book through Nazraeli Press, and this exhibition at Ampersand is done in conjunction with the archived photos of his father found in the book.
Ampersand notes, "The show is a collaboration of sorts between Corey & his father, Chris Arnold, who made several of these photographs throughout his son’s childhood as he grew up an avid sport fisherman in Southern California. The photographs speak to the fact that fishing & story telling go hand in hand & that cameras & their snapshots have historically served to verify the truth of often questionable narratives."
