Photographer Brent Gemmill

From May 7th through June 15th, Appletree Books will host an exhibition of photographs by Brent Gemmill.

Brent is a musician and multimedia artist originally from New Zealand who now calls Cleveland home.

While he doesn't consider himself a traditional photographer ("I don't know an f-stop from a bus stop"), Brent sees photography as a tool for his art to explore beauty in nature and urban decay.

Featured in the show will be floating mounted pieces, prints on canvas, and bespoke Photo Tubes.
