Love it or hate it, if you’re uptown, you can’t ignore EpiCentre. The entertainment complex has become a pulsing hub of activity, especially after the sun goes down.
But there’s more to it than mechanical bulls, Ed Hardy T-shirts, and cover charges. Over two days in April, from noon Friday to noon Saturday, as part of a project called CityBlock*, dozens of photographers spread out across EpiCentre and snapped away. Here’s what they saw.
CityBlock is a project of Paparazzi, the young affiliates group of The Light Factory Contemporary Museum of Photography and Film. The project received more than 180 submissions, and the participants selected five winners. Their photographs are on display at the Light Factory galleries in Spirit Square.
