Pat Spinosa Photographs Magic
Pat Spinosa is a photographer who makes magic. In her work, at the intersection of science and visuality, she creates new and beautiful worlds with un-retouched photography of ice and water.
A vast collection of her pieces is on the wall in The Art Shoppe until the end of February 2018. Don’t miss it.
