Photography is the star of the show at Henry Art Gallery exhibition, including Rodrigo Valenzuela's Builder #1

A recent review from The Seattle Times calls photography "the star of the show" in The Time. The Place. Contemporary Art from the Collection, on view at the Henry in Seattle. Read the whole review.

Chilean-American artist Rodrigo Valenzuela’s “Builder #1” is ... a seamless composite, transforming disparate images into a plausible landscape featuring a shack and a crumbling pier in a desolate arid setting. This place may not exist, but it speaks volumes about what it takes to create a world for yourself when your life has been one of displacement.
— Michael Upchurch for The Seattle Times
