A screening of a documentary about the local and national iterations of the project, "REVEALED: Portraits from Beneath One's Surface," is scheduled after the reception at 7:45 pm at Centro Restaurant and Lounge.
Among the most striking images from the project is a picture of Jim Stahl, wearing an eye patch, and clutching a box with a piece of twine attached, a ruby lick of flame working its way up the fuse.
Stahl, founder of the young adult literary magazine Merlyn's Pen, says he chose to evoke the fireworks accident that claimed his left eye when he was 13. "I think being in the dark, in that dark studio with the box and the fuse and the flame, brought me back to that important accident," says Stahl.
For Stahl, his portrait is a reminder of the need for honesty and authenticity. For the viewer, it may simply be a reminder to pause and reflect. At least, that is what Indermaur hopes. The project is a "gentle reminder," he says, to stop and think about who we are.
