Photo Exhibit and Reception - Eric McNatt - The Character Project Sept 18-20, 2009 in the Turtle Enoteca

The Turtle Enoteca is hanging Eric McNatt's Photos for viewing by the public in the wine bar during the city of Brownwood's Feels Like Home Festival. Eric McNatt is an Austin Texas native with roots in Brownwood.
He has been living and working in New York as a photographer since 1996. He holds a degree from the California College of the Arts in San Francisco, where he graduated with distinction. To date, Eric's work has been published in The New York Times Style Magazine, ESPN -the magazine, Vogue, Entertainment Weekly, New York Magazine, Fortune, Wired, Interview, Paper, Flaunt, Spin, and People, as well as many others. His commercial clients range from A & E Entertainment, The History Channel, Sony/Columbia BMG, The USA Network, and EURO SCG to book projects for Galerie LeLong in New York City. He splits his time between his 1970's A-Frame deep in Ulster County, surrounded by trees and deer, and his East Village apartment with a garden view and old men arguing on the stoop.

Hours of Exhibit are: Friday September 18 5:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Saturday September 19 11:00 am - 10 pm
Reception 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Sunday September 20 Noon - 5:00 pm

This will be an opportunity to buy photos taken for the Project directly from the photographer and talk with him about his experiences photographing the citizens of Brownwood, Texas. Eric will be signing his book which will be available for sale. The framed photos in the exhibit itself will be sold through a silent auction.

And if these pictures have anything important to say to future generations, it’s this: I was here. I existed. I was young, I was happy, and someone cared enough about me in this world to take my picture.
