PASSAGEWAY ART GALLERY PHOTO EXHIBIT DEBUTS AT UNION STATION
Powerful Images by Artist Ken Karagozian Document Nearly 30 Years of Metro Subway Construction
“Deep Connections,” a new photo exhibition featuring the otherworldly black and white images of artist Ken Karagozian, is now on display in the Passageway Art Gallery. For the first time ever, Gallery images will also be accessible online.
Karagozian’s intimate photographs chronicle a unique view of Los Angeles through the documentation of Metro subway construction over the last three decades. His dramatic images balance the humanity of the workers, the enormity of the machinery and the intricacy of the jobs in the complex underground of the Metro system of subterranean Los Angeles. Karagozian’s work brilliantly showcases the elaborate choreography happening beneath Angelenos’ feet in the unfamiliar environment of underground tunneling in the city.
