Hot Ticket: Taking wing

By Times Staff Writer
Published February 17, 2005

Photography often finds itself at a nexus between art and science, a blurred line manifested in an exhibition of 27 large-scale photographs by Todd Watts at the Tampa Gallery of Photographic Arts, 1627 W Snow Circle, Old Hyde Park Village, Tampa, that opens Friday with a free reception from 6 to 8 p.m. Titled "Caterpillar's Conundrum," the show includes work done over Watts' 30-year career, including Passenger Pigeon 1238, shown above. Watts deploys lots of technical manipulations to enrich his photographs with metaphor and nuance and will discuss his techniques at a free talk at 10 a.m. Saturday at the museum. For information, call (813) 251-1800.
