‘Bill Luster: Photographic Memories’ @ Paul Paletti Gallery

Through May 31

Paul Paletti Gallery
713 E. Market St. • 589-9254

Bill Luster is a Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist worthy of a retrospective. So the Paul Paletti Gallery felt it was only right to give him one, the first time they have shown a living local artist. His photographs tell stories of American life, both large and small. He’s photographed five presidents, including Barack Obama, 45 Kentucky Derbies and the Amish. “Holmes County, Ohio, is home to the world’s largest population of Amish residents,” Luster remembers. “While on assignment for National Geographic, a colleague and I were standing on a road and we heard the clip-clop of an Amish buggy coming. As the two girls passed, we heard sounds from a boombox and the music of Prince’s ‘Purple Rain.’” The closing reception is on Tuesday, May 31, from 5-8 p.m. —Jo Anne Triplett
