Exhibit McConnell Arts Center January 6 – March 6, 2011: Salrin’s photography, is distinguished by rusted metal, peeling paint, or just the grime of an empty warehouse. “Too often the effects of time are viewed negatively by misrepresentation and are ultimately misunderstood. I see character, I see composition, I see texture, I see color, I see beauty, I see life. Ultimately, it is my ambition to convey these aesthetics visually into an intriguing photograph.”
