much respect to my homie, scotty mankoff (aka crazy picture guy), who has a badass show at kettle art gallery through this saturday. curated with the same renegade spirit that fuels CPG's work, this one week only show at is an all you can gaze eyeball buffet.
if you're out and about in big d, you've probably seen this bearded wonder snapping the night away with his dslr. whether he'll admit to it or not, scotty is a tenacious photo-journalist, documenting the dallas art and music scene day in and beard out.
i'm sure i'm not alone when i say that the omnipresence of his external flash provides the local arts community with some kind of beacon, spreading credibility and nurturing purpose.*
here's to 1 year's worth of photo-lunacy. here's to scotty.
if you haven't already, check out his show at Kettle Art Gallery. chances are, if you're not on the walls there, you can probably find yourself at www.crazypictureguy.com.
