Chandi Kelly's "The Storm": A Fotoweek Treasure

"The Storm" is a part of a series of photographs by photographer Chandi Kelly featured at Studio Gallery. In this series, Kelly cleverly arranges several books between bookends on a shelf. Though they may at first appear to be simply a graphically pleasing view of a home, with a closer look, the viewer will discover a much deeper meaning. "The Storm" features bookends with figures of a colonial style couple turned away and facing the wall. Between them sits a row of books with titles such as "Lightening and Thunder", "Cocktail Party", and "Alone". Kelly excellently combines these objects in the composition to create a view into the repressed and unhappy relationship of a troubled couple.
Come see Kelly's works at Studio Gallery before November 20th!
