Art: The Insider

Saturday, January 12

Last year, over the course of several months, more than 50 Dunedin households opened their doors to photographer Les Slesnick and became the subjects of his up-close-and-personal examination of cultural values. Private Spaces: The Dunedin Project is the fourth photo collection of Slesnick's U.S.-based series, which chronicles the lives and homes of small-town Americans. According to Slesnick, an enormous amount of info can be collected by studying the contents and seemingly unimportant details of a home, and the photos he takes are mostly "peopleless portraits" that tell a great deal about the individuals without actually showing them. Private Spaces opened yesterday at the Dunedin Fine Art Center along with James Perry Walker: The Preacher and His Congregation, a series of images by Walker that document the Black Baptist circuit, and Elizabeth Faubert's American Sign Language Series and Photo-Synthesis: DFAC Photographers. Through Feb. 17, 1143 Michigan Blvd., Dunedin, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Mon.-Fri., 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Sat., 1-4 p.m. Sun., 727-298-3322,
