A SOLO PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBIT
BY HENRY BAGATO
February 13, 2016 — February 28, 2016
FREE Opening Reception for the Photographer Saturday, February 13 from 6–10pm
With this selection of photographs, Henry Bagato hints at a connection between his current state, teetering within the realms of both adolescence and adulthood; and that of Washington, DC; where he has spent most of his life. Washington’s current state of rapid gentrification has left a sense of impermanence upon many aspects of the city- including its native residents, culture, and much of its infrastructure. These images evoke a sense of mystery and nostalgia within the mundane while also addressing systematic faults that flood our daily lives.
Born in 1997, Henry Bagato grew up skateboarding and exploring in and around Washington, DC and is currently attending the School of the Arts at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia. He has been a finalist in Photographer’s Forum Magazine’s Best of College and High School Photography in both 2013 and 2014, and was awarded the Bob Morrison Visual Arts Award for Excellence in Photography in 2015. This year, with Idle Time, he will be the youngest artist to host a solo exhibition at The Fridge in Washington, DC. His work seeks to reveal the magic within the mundane of everyday life.
