"Life: In Black & White" is a celebration, tribute, and remembrance of the extreme complexities of daily life captured through the lens of photographer Charles Eshelman. Having been self-taught, Eshelman's work has been shaped by the grittiness and stark realities of Chicago, Paris, and New York. The work on view documents the many aspects that make up our lives from fans enjoying a baseball game and children playing on the beach, to the horror witnessed on September 11th. Eshelmans work is a reminder of the volatile nature of life and the brief joyful moments we all cherish and value in our daily lives.
Charles Eshelman is based in New York City and has exhibited his work nationally in New York, San Francisco and Chicago. His photography is in many private collections including Chicago's Museum of Science and Industry. "Life: In Black & White" will be on view at ParaSite Art Space, located inside the Iron Fish Trading Company, 167 Main Street, Beacon, New York.
