“Every Day Holds A Secret” At Laguna Art Museum Benefit Auction

"Every Day Holds A Secret" from the Tunnel Series by Gina Genis

Hello friends,

Thought I’d let you know that one of my photographs from the Tunnel Series will be up for auction at the Laguna Art Museum’s fundraising benefit. The series in a continuing project I started in 2009. I am photographing tunnels that I believe to have metaphorical connotations. It is a popular series because it has sold quite a bit. I have had a few adventures while shooting these tunnels. Slipping in slimy freezing water and almost destroying my Canon 5D has been the most common. Running into a group of sketchy gangbangers with weapons in the forest was another. Don’t ask me what they were doing there. My camera and I have survived.

If you live within driving distance of Laguna Beach, I encourage you to come to the auction on February 4th. It is a rockin’ party that is always very well attended. If you can’t come, and want to own my work, click here for an online bidding form. When shown in a gallery, the price is $950, but the opening bid is only $450. The piece is a 20″ x 13″  C Print, face mounted to acrylic, backed with Sintra, and has a french cleat for hanging. Top notch museum quality. Grab it now and become one of the dignified circle of my collectors.
