Opening Reception: Friday, March 23, 7-9pm

Colby Caldwell’s spent series is new photographic work based on shotgun shell casings of varying ages and in varying states of decay found throughout the rural farm where he lives in St. Mary’s County, Maryland. Through scanning these shells at high resolution and presenting them on stark white backgrounds, the artist has imported what might be called “refuse” into the domain of photography, presenting the material almost as billboards touting memory and the passage of time.
