Back to School Shopping

Are you a bargain shopper in search of the most economical product? Maybe you’re a one of those shoppers who carefully researches a product for quality and then shops around for the best value on a product. (more…)

Review: Local Artist Exhibits Photographs of Students September 16, 2009

By: Katherine Schumacher

Walk into Jungle Science, an art gallery on Court St., and you might walk out feeling somewhat self-conscious. First, you’ll be met by the dreamy gaze of a beautiful young woman, the most prominently displayed piece in a show dedicated to female portraiture. Continue on, and you’ll see that the show echoes the pages of a fashion magazine, with plenty of gorgeous women pouting or scowling or simply staring, all somehow monotonous despite their eye-catching beauty.

The artist and gallery owner known by the pseudonym “Teknari” spent the last year recruiting local students to pose for this show, one of a series of art projects he has worked on in recent years.  Photographs were shot indoors, usually with black or white backdrops and the use of water, fans, and make-up to create the aesthetic Teknari was looking for.

While none of the pieces are overtly harmful or threatening, few truly celebrate the beauty of femininity. Like the spread of a magazine, every photograph is posed, each one chosen from hundreds of similar versions to capture the subject at her most flawless moment. More attention is paid to avoiding imperfection than to capturing inherent beauty.

Nonetheless, Teknari’s exhibit does have its shining moments. His best work appears to be more candid, using less make-up and less direction from the photographer.

The artist says he will continue with his photography, and hopes to show more of his work.

When college senior Kristina Webb, 23, decided to take an unpaid internship at a newspaper this summer, she thought she could make it work. She would live at home, get a part-time job, and cut back her spending. Her parents offered to help her pay for food and gas.

But then Kristina’s father got laid off from his construction job, the family budget tightened, and Kristina, who attends Palm Beach Atlantic University, did not hear back from any of 35 part-time jobs she applied to. Blame it on the economy. (more…)
