Artist Talk: Vladimir Antaki

Join Blue Sky Gallery for an artist talk with Vladimir Antaki. For his series The Guardians, Antaki traveled across Europe, the Middle East, and America, photographing and interviewing shopkeepers or “Guardians.” These Guardians are keepers of what Antaki terms “urban temples,” or unique spaces which, in an age of cookie-cutter, corporate shops, hearken back to an earlier mode of urban life. Antaki creates portraits of the Guardians that invite the viewer connect to the beauty of these often forgotten spaces.
