Repair & Shine - opens Nov. 6th

The Rabbithole Gallery in Brooklyn, New York, is pleased to announce the opening of Lindsay Blatt’s “REPAIR & SHINE” – a solo photographic exhibition featuring large-format environmental portraits and still lifes of neighborhood shoe repairmen and their shops. The show will run from November 6 to November 30 at the gallery, which is located at 33
Washington Street in DUMBO, Brooklyn. Please contact the gallery for hours, 718.852.1500. Opening reception on Thursday Nov. 6th from 5:00-9:00 PM, with live music by Hang the Lights and Giancarlo Vulcano.

In our throw-away world teeming with molded plastic products, Lindsay pauses to celebrate the tradition of skillful repair carried out with age-old skills and time-honored tools. Little removed from their traditional roots, the shoe repairmen in Lindsay’s photos mend footwear in a manner that has not changed for decades. Enter these photographs and you smell the tanning solutions, the scent of leather, the sweat of honest labor. In a world of assembly lines and blister packs, Lindsay reveals an unseen realm where practiced hands refurbish, resole, and breathe new life into shoes that have lives of their own. She celebrates the dedication of these men who persevere generation after generation in tiny shops filled with spinning brushes, leather stitchers, and shoe forms. With the detail of a 4×5 view camera- itself an anachronistic instrument in a digital world- Lindsay’s work, too, is a labor of love.
