"Geer Street Looking West, Durham, NC, 1974"

Will Grossman 

When: Jan. 20-Feb. 11 2012

If you've strolled along Chapel Hill Street in downtown Durham, you might have espied proprietor Roylee Duvall through the tinted windows of his Through This Lens photography gallery, teetering on a ladder or sawing walls in half. Expect a new configuration this Third Friday: Duvall is expanding more than just the space this year, promising new services, classes and workshops, as well as more talks and demonstrations.

The reformatted gallery kicks off the calendar year with a reprise of an exhibit of local photographer Will Grossman's work titled Durham in the 1970s. In crisp, twin lens reflex images, Grossman provides a look into the past of the very turf that this exhibition sits on, all through his painterly compositional eye. Capturing a portrait of how urban renewal transformed the Bull City, he describes the historical moment of the photographs as when Durham "was in transition from a city with a downtown to a city with shopping malls." Grossman will reminisce at Friday's 6–9 p.m. opening reception. The show continues through Feb. 11. —Chris Vitiello
