Currently on view through July, Jason Machen’s exhibition, “Reflections,” features nude portraits of women and other fine art photographs. After settling on the exhibition’s title, the artist coincidentally found an old newspaper clipping from the Elberton Star and recalled that his first solo show, held in 1976, went by the same name. As a teenager, Machen pursued a diploma from the School of Modern Photography, and he opened a portrait studio around the same time to continue shooting photographs—weddings, portraits, dance, Little League and just about everything else—for over 25 years. A while back, he sold the commercial location and moved his studio to a historic 1850 house in Bowman. Tonight’s event is held in conjunction with Third Thursday, a citywide initiative in which galleries stay open late for nighttime viewing.
