Captive Werewolf

Steven Hight FogI've decided to turn Captive Werewolf into an online art gallery with rotating exhibits, changing every couple of weeks. I'm hoping to do a tiny little bit to promote artists creating work that I admire and to hopefully create a community of goodwill surrounding the gallery. The current exhibit is a selection of photographs by Steven Hight. Steven uses of a "through the viewfinder" technique with its inherent filter of scratches, dust and haze to view subjects, already obscured by the famous fogs of San Francisco. These multiple layers of obviscation lend an ethereal aura of calm eeriness to otherwise commonplace scenes of city life. I originally saw these images in Steven's Flickr stream more than a year ago and have been drawn back to look at them again and again.
