ToDo ToDay: Michael Borek! CSS!
As a teenager in Prague, Michael Borek recalls seeing "a one-armed man in a shabby coat schlepping a tripod and a large-view camera." It was Josef Sudek, a celebrated Czech photographer. Borek bought a book of his images and immediately fell in love. Now, decades later, Borek is mounting an exhibition of works that pay homage to Sudek and his oeuvre. Borek’s photographs include a gently draped piece of saffron fabric (shown); a car in a carport obscured by a light-blue covering; and a pile of rotting leaves on a grid of blue pool tiles. Read more >>> The exhibition is on view Fridays to Wednesdays 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Thursdays noon to 9 p.m., to July 20, at Multiple Exposures Gallery at the Torpedo Factory Art Center, 105 North Union St., Studio 312, Alexandria.
