Kinetic Decay

Please support my friends and their photo exhibit opening. Historic preservation is an important issue in my campaign and their exhibit highlights the beauty of preservation. A portion of the proceeds go to Historic Houston.

Houston is an eclectic city, filled with both modern skyscrapers and antiquated buildings. It is a living dichotomy. Local photographers (and brothers) Alex Luster & Michael Luster invite the public to view a sampling of their latest project "Kinetic Decay," which aims to illustrate the inherent beauty in decaying structures. A goal of the exhibit is to raise awareness, and to garner enthusiasm and support for the development and preservation of these structures.

This gallery exhibit is part of an ongoing endeavor initiated by the brothers to involve the creative talent of local artists with the efforts of the non-profit group Historic Houston in the celebration and preservation of historic architecture in the Houston area. A portion of proceeds from the exhibit will go directly to Historic Houston, with additional donations from future book and event sales to follow.

Alex and Michael are collaborating on a book of photographs, which gives the viewer a look at the nation's 4th largest city through the eyes of Houston natives.

The exhibit opens February 3rd and runs through March 2nd.
