In 2018 in Ybor City, the first ever “Obscure Eye” show included work from Bob Croslin, a newspaper photographer whose work often focuses on bicyclists (Croslin shot a summer 2020 Bicycling magazine cover featuring Tampa Bay expat Leo Rodgers).
While Croslin’s work isn’t on the walls of “Obscure Eye No. 3” happening in Seminole Heights on Saturday at the Avenue Lofts, another bike-minded photographer’s work is on display.
James Luedde is an occasional Creative Loafing Tampa Bay contributor who last shot a memorial ride for the late Joe Haskins, and he’s joined at the free show—set for June 5 at 7 p.m.‚ by a mixed media artist (Dylan Perry, work in progress above) plus photographers Chaz Miley and show organizer K. Kyle Randall who’re all also local skateboard scene vets.
“The obscure eye is anyone who looks at things differently within their photography or art,” Randall said in a message to CL, adding that he hopes the show brings together locals and other artists.
Avenue Lofts is at 5236 N Florida Ave. across the street from the Ichicoro ramen-ya. More information is available on Instagram via @KKR_foto.
