Exploring the parallel realities that exist in the city, No Parking features photographs dating back nearly two decades. . . . While major roads such as Warren Street offer a panoply of architectural spectacle to enjoy, No Parking tells the story of those small streets that run parallel to the larger thoroughfares, and the hidden barns, garages, storehouses, and studios nestled along them.
"I happened to notice in the summer of 1998 that gentrification had unmistakably taken off in Hudson," William Hellermann recounted to fellow photographer Valerie Shaff. "However, by contrast, I found that the garages were often more visually interesting than the building on the main thoroughfares. They have an accidental beauty."
No Parking offers viewers the rare opportunity to travel back to a time in Hudson's not-so-distant past with work from three of the most talented photographers living in the city today.The opening reception for No Parking takes place on Saturday, January 14, from 5 to 7 p.m.
