Ray Potes from Hamburger Eyes stopped in today to check out his prints. They’re gigantic and it’s part of a grid of photos being displayed in his section. Glad to see his curated images so large.

Although there’s even more that will one day turn up, I’ll be showing a decent grouping at Balconi Coffee in West LA. Here’s the FB event page. I’ll write a few “liner notes” for the photos.
