Brian Offidani Gallery Opening

The gallery opening for "Mud" by Brian Offidani will open tonight, February 11th from 6:30-8:30pm. 

About Mud:
"I initially became interested in shooting portraits of Tough Mudders after I had run the race. I'm a very competitive person, but I ran this race with a group of about 20 people of varying degrees of fitness. I didn't think I would enjoy the race as much because of this, but it turned out I was wrong. I really did enjoy camaraderie and it really seemed to elevate the excitement of the event. I wanted to shoot portraits at the finish line in a controlled environment. I was interested in how this camaraderie transformed people after such an event; it seemed to be infectious. People seemed to be either overjoyed with accomplishment and adrenaline, exhausted or literally transformed from the mud into almost a caricature of them."
