Photographer Stanley Cockrell Jr. will have his first show tonight at Urban Spirits Cafe.
Head over to Urban Spirits Cafe, 893 E. Long St., King-Lincoln District, tonight to support a young photographer showing his work publicly for the first time. Stanley Cockrell Jr. is a 2004 graduate of East High School. His "Exposed: The Beauty Within the Light" show at the cafe aims to capture "the essence and emotion of our lives," Cockrell said. Visitors can see silhouette, glamour and landscape images. This image of the Columbus skyline, which exaggerates the city's white or light buildings, caught my eye when Stanley emailed it earlier this week. Stanley said he chose to exhibit in the King-Lincoln District "in order to bring a positive activity to a misunderstood community." The show starts at 7 p.m.
