Image by Wright Schickli Selected by the Praxis Gallery

Midtown Palo Alto, an image by PACC member Wright Schickli, has been selected for inclusion in the annual The Streets exhibition at the Praxis Gallery and Photo Arts Center in Minneapolis.

In The Streets exhibition, Praxis Gallery presents photographic art that explores the genre of street photography from all angles, including people, urban structure, and documentary subject matter.  Robi Chakraborty, a former commercial and press photographer who currently visits his native India to explore its different states and to photograph its people, culture, festivals and landscape, was the juror.

Wright says:  Midtown Palo Alto is one of a series of images I captured of a runaway Safeway shopping cart that landed in the Midtown CVS parking lot, and remained there for a few months.  The scene with the cart changed drastically over that time, although the cart itself never moved.   And I decided it was worth asking someone to move their car when they began to park there while I was trying to take this particular photo, as someone is almost always parked in front of this spot.
