    Pop Up Photo Exhibit -Blurred Lines - A multi-exposure photographic adventure by Bengt Erik Åkerblom - Sat, Oct 29 - Sat, Nov 5, All day

    Layer upon layer of ever moving images are captured via multi exposure, in-camera and blend into brush like textures. Nothing is photoshopped or manipulated with filters. Only basic photo parameters are modified. Presented in a unique format, with no actual prices on the prints. Says Akerblom, "I once went to a restaurant in London that had no prices on the menu. They said "just pay what you think it's worth, whatever you can afford, we'd be happy with that” “I would be happy with that too. Just pay what you think it’s worth, whatever you can afford."

    Frames are a fixed price but are not required to purchase. You may buy a print at whatever price you feel it is worth, whatever you can afford.
