Pieces by Parkes are interesting “found photography” in that he snaps snippets of life and surroundings that people often walk right past and miss. One particularly interesting photo was of a telephone pole that had various layers ripped back to reveal an abstract image on top, and a depiction of a lonely woman below. The piece of his that caught my eye the most was a large colourful capture of a well-set up display of wrestling action figures from America and Mexico.
Rush’s images are more structured and many are architectural based. Stop by the gallery and see Toronto through his lens. Above is the artist’s step-daughter and fellow photographer, Jamie Day Fleck, and me in front of his White piece.
