Was in the neighbourhood so we stopped in for a look around. Interesting collection of photographs. Three photographers work on display today, people pictures. Is worth a look around if you are in the neighbourhood.

As a Professional Photographer, I was hoping to see more. There was some interesting stuff there but the entire collection lacked. Random portraits seems all too much like student work they had a few hours to shoot and edit.

For everyone who enjoys great pictures and want to get inspired this is a great place to come. The exhibit and people involved. The courses and the place itself. Loved it. Cheers!

HPC a nice gallery space that rotates in new photo displays throughout the year. It is a great place to see how creative people are using their cameras. Admission to the gallery is free. HPC is an easy one block walk from the Menil grounds.

We stopped by to see the exhibitions on display. There were some interesting pictures on display. We especially enjoyed the photographs of letters from different places.
