Dru Batte’s ‘Finding Light in New Places’ exhibition at 934 Gallery

Dru Batte has been reaching for her camera “like I’m reaching to pick up pieces” in the wake of the death of her friend, Daniel Sebastian Loper. Shooting the images that will be featured in her exhibition, “Finding Light in New Places,” which opens this weekend at 934 Gallery (and will remain on view through Aug. 26), has been an “unintended process of grief for myself. Daniel’s death, unbeknownst to me, instigated this exhibition,” she said. There is physical light represented in all of these images but, as the title suggests, there’s a metaphor at work as well.

I don’t have much time for nostalgia.”
