The San Diego International Airport has put three new exhibits on display featuring two local photographers and the San Diego History Center in Balboa Park.
In several locations in Terminal 2, the airport is showing a selection from the History Center’s current exhibition, “TUNA! Celebrating San Diego’s Famous Fishing Industry.” The exhibit offers large-scale photographs and artifacts relating to the region’s once flurishing commerical fishing industry. It’s at the airport through September; the primary exhibit is on view in Balboa Park through Dec. 31.
In Terminal 2 East (near gate 23), photographer Natasha Kozlova is showing portraits from her “Children of the Sun” project, which involved photographing children diagnosed with autism.
Kozlova is a Russian born photographer whose images have appeared in Russian editions of VOGUE, Harper’s Bazaar, ELLE, GQ, Glamour, as well as at Art Moscow, RuArts Gallery and other Russian art spaces. She moved to San Diego in 2007. “Children of the Sun” will be on display through October.
Also in Terminal 2 East (near gate 22) are photographs by Christine Witnik. For this exhibit, she’s showing nostalgia-tinged photos from carnivals, circuses and amusement parks. She shoots in black and white, and then colors and hand paints her photographs.
Witnik moved to San Diego six years ago from Chicago, where she had won awards from the Deer Path Art League, the Ernest Hemingway Foundation, and Chicago’s Community Arts Assistance Program and had exhibited at the Brickton Gallery, among other venues.
Her images are up through October.
