New Photography from a Late Local Photographer
Fans of the late Sergio Goes will get the chance to see never-before-shown photos of his this Friday at the Peggy Chun Gallery at Mark’s Garage. One of Honolulu’s most talented photographers before his accidental death in 2008, and a regular and award-winning freelancer for HONOLULU Magazine, Goes shot everything from gritty urban life to tranquil landscapes. This new exhibit, entitled, “Sergio Goes: The Seer and the Spectacle,” features new prints of Goes’ landscapes and seascapes, ranging from aerial images of coastlines to underwater glimpses into the world of free-divers.
If you’re not familiar with his work, check out some of Goes’s best HONOLULU Magazine shots here, in the original memorial we published after his death.
Another good entry into his photography is the essay “Celebrations,” which won a first place award from the Society of Professional Journalists in 2008.
The opening reception is this Friday, from 5 to 9 p.m., and the exhibit runs through October 9.
