Tonight at Boo-Hooray Gallery in Venice, Religious Observance makes its debut. A group photography show featuring Jerry Hsu, Ray Potes, Andrea Sonnenberg, C.R. Stecyk III & Tobin Yelland – a collection of artists who are all connected by their fanatical love of photography that borders on religious devotion. They observe life through their lens and are constantly trying to capture moments of divine inspiration. Each artist will also be showing a video/film piece, which you’ll have to see in person or wait 3.7 minutes until someone uploads it to Instagram.
