Sidewalk grates, survey markers, fire sprinkler covers, oxidized meters, weathered signs, ramshackle barns — corroded and dilapidated yet ordinary things we pass every day without consideration — are captured through the lens and elevated with color tweaks to objects of beauty.
For two years, Cassandra Day has been chronicling Middletown's hidden treasures via Instagram. Middletown: Lost and Found, Photographs gathers some of these images, transforming what are considered mundane elements of city life into a study of the extraordinary.
Day is a multimedia journalist who's spent more than 20 years writing about and photographing the people and places that make this city nestled along the big bend in the Connecticut River like no other.
Can't make the opening reception? The exhibit runs Feb. 1-28 at Klekolo.
