Two Months Off: Epic Landscapes from Ordinary Places is Shane Redsar’s first ever solo exhibition, hosted at a clothing store, Una Mae’s. I attended the opening night party and it was actually a surprise to me that the show was held inside this store. It was unexpected! Amidst the vintage looking clothes and accessories, Shane’s photos were laid out on the walls and between merchandise. The theme of his photos effortlessly blended Â with the store’s decor while catching my attention at the same time. Shane’s photography has always been pretty distinct to me; his style is so sharp and focused. He transforms the ordinary into vivid and quite beautiful imagery.
When I first found out Shane was planning this road trip, I was impressed and envious! Traveling cross-country and exploring new places always seems like a good idea to me. I am glad that he had decided to share his experience with the rest of us through this show.
â€œI went on this trip to decompress from work and to see the country. I love living in Los Angeles, but sometimes it can feel like being in a bubble. I hadnâ€™t seen anything beyond a 25 mile radius from where I live in quite a while. I needed to do something to remind myself nature, small towns and other cities exist.â€ – Shane
It was a good evening with a great turn out for the show. Free alcohol and snacks were served, while a food truck fed the masses outside. I saw some good friends that I rarely see these days, which made me happy.
