OPENING NIGHT: Thursday Sept. 25th at 6pm Artist Talk at 7pm Jarmain's photographs owe some of their formal impact to Detroit's scabrous physical ruins: the camera, a disembodied eye, which extract beauties from the textures of decay. The topical edge to the body of work is supplemented by the city of Detroit's recent declaration of hopeless insolvency. Many critical observers identify the 
Motor City's breakdown with the functional bankruptcy of industrialism and the moral bankruptcy of finance capitalism.
