Mike Schreiber's "True" was dope. He used an image map that mounted his work on foam chore which corresponded to another map that provided details like subject and location. This helped organize the exhibition space. He also had images matted traditionally, printed full frame, behind glass with a handsome black frame. I found his printing to be on point and totally a man after my own aesthetic, as I print dark and like pearly whites, rich blacks, and a range of silvers to seduce. There was some color work too, but the black and white was more or less his greatest weapon.
Walking about the show, I couldn't help but want a hip hop sound score to accompany the event. There were all these images of hip hop icons on top of archetypes but the dj was playing something decent but unidentifiable. The complement between the music and images was a missed op at synergizing the two mediums: music and photography. So the work gets an A and the event a B. All that said, I lift my lens cap to Mike for his portraiture in black and white with nuff depth of field.
