Last night I attended "Candy: The Land of Donks," an immersive group photography exhibition at Space 42. Contributing to the exhibition were photographers Malcolm Jackson, Andre Burgess, Esdras Thelsuma, and Aaron J. Jackson. Donks, a part of car culture born in Florida, served as the subjects of all photographs. Donks are full-sized Chevrolets built between 1971 and 1976 that are customized with flashy rims, extravagant sound systems, and are often painted wild, candy colors.
I selected the wrong lens to shoot the opening, as I anticipated more light in Space 42. However, not all my photographs turned out terrible.
Interestingly, I interviewed Malcolm Jackson exactly one year ago yesterday. I've really enjoyed seeing his growth as a photographer over the course of the last year. He has generated a tremendous amount of momentum and continues to garner praise from arts community.
