Welcome back! Feel free to start here or head back to Part 1. After taking a brief pause in the exhibition to focus on one of our sponsors, we now head back to the participants themselves. Here’s Patrick Kendrick. You may have never heard of Patrick, which makes this ‘A’ Frame all the more exciting. Patrick’s been behind the scenes working his tail off for quite a long time, curating musical shows and putting on and promoting events. Anyone who has been paying attention to “Young Spokane” has seen Patrick around and benefited from his dedication to promoting others.
The large photo on the left is the largest (and because of its height also the photo closest to your eyes), so it should grab your attention and make you want to hug Patrick and get closer to the ‘A’ frame itself. The trick, photographically speaking, is getting everyone to look hug-worthy. Are all the S50 participants hug-worthy? Absolutely! Are they all hug-worthy when you stick a camera in their face? Well, no – that’s one of the many reasons why you hire a seasoned, talented professional photographer; we know how to make people feel at ease.
Next comes the quote that allows each participant to say something about their city, Spokane. Some people say nice things about which places to visit in Spokane; others share some pretty deep observations – both are welcome. Below that is a text that briefly describes some of the things this participant has done to make Spokane a better place to live, work, and visit, in the arts, music, and culture arenas. Below that are three portraits that serve to more fully “portray” the participant, followed by the organizations/projects they’ve worked with and a way to find out more information about them. Patrick’s detail shots show his “old school” tapes and skater shoes (Van’s).
Yes, these are much more impressive when you see them all together and especially printed at 2 feet by 4 feet, but at least you can now see them on the web. Try to get out to a exhibition to experience the full effect. And don’t forget that nominations are still open for S50. Take a moment out of your day to tell us about someone who has been working to make Spokane a better place to live, work, and visit, especially in the Arts, Music, and Culture scenes. Thanks!
