December 2017 Exhibit
Hidden in the Backstreets
Photographs on Metal by Chelsea Beck

This exhibition features photos of graffiti and street art, which reveal ways that today's youth seek distraction. “My natural eye for street art and otherwise overlooked objects and aspects of society is a great passion and a concept I strive to show in my work,” says Chelsea. “I believe street art is not only a skilled and attractive medium, but also a conduit by which many artists in my generation express their thoughts, views and feelings about the current state in which we live.” Born and raised in Norwood, NJ, Chelsea attended Northern Valley Old Tappan Regional High School, where she enjoyed photography as a hobby. But it was while she was earning her BA in Sociology at the University of Colorado at Boulder, that the culture, lifestyle and natural beauty of the region ultimately inspired her to pursue photography as a career. She worked as a freelance photographer for numerous publications in Denver, and just completed a post-graduate degree in Photography at the University of the Arts, London. She currently lives in Los Angeles, where she is pursuing her photography. To see more her work, visit: www.chelsealynbeck.com
