Commerce, by Dominic Valente: Street Fair

by December 3, 2014

Street fairThe Reynolds Center is pleased to host Commerce, a photography exhibit by Dominic Valente, a student at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication in Phoenix.

His show depicts all types of commerce taking place in Phoenix, the United States, Mexico and around the world.

Here is Street Fair. This event took place earlier in 2014, on Central Avenue outside the Cronkite School (we’re the reddish-brown building in the upper right hand corner of the shot).

Says Valente, “At first glance, downtown Phoenix can seem like a ghost town. Empty lots, abandoned buildings, and desolate intersections can be seen at many turns. But, every once in a while, the city opens up and troves of people flock to the streets to share the great experience of life.”

Stop by the Reynolds Center in the Cronkite Building during business hours to see Valente’s show. Or, visit his website here.
