Event Details:

This exhibit of shoes and photos tells the moving story of everyday Toledo folks, and their  journeys. You're invited to see this incredible variety of shoes representing all walks of life from stilettos to work boots to WWII nursing shoes to slippers that walk the NIC unit with preemie babies.  Each pair of shoes is acompanied by a short story that will move you and make you laugh in a very memorable gallery exhibit.

 Accompanying the exhibit are black and white photos by James Dickerson. "Five years ago, 35-year old Dickerson, aka dirtykics, was a short story writer looking for inspiration. Seeking curious characters, the Scott High School graduate picked up a camera and began walking local streets to capture details to use in his stories. It wasn’t long before he adjusted his focus.“Everything I work on is a kind of escapism,” says Dickerson. “And photography came out of those character studies. I started paying attention to what was going on all around me.”Making momentsIt doesn’t take very long to notice a theme in Dickerson’s street photography. Featuring portraits of strangers he meets on the streets, his photos are subdued, often in a hazy black and white, capturing a specific and consistent mood. His subjects are vulnerable and open, if only for a brief moment.“I have a very raw way of doing things,” explains Dickerson. “I capture the person in whatever state they’re in, and hopefully the viewer will be able to understand the mood.”" . . taken from an article written by Athena Cocoves, Nov 22, 2017 City Paper.
