Concepia opens Saturday with first solo show for photographer Randy Laybourne
Concepia, Friday Harbor's latest business venture, opens Saturday with the first solo show of Randy Laybourne, 2-5 p.m., in Churchill Corner, just above the ferry landing.
Concepia is run by John Sinclair, a local photographer and nine-year resident of San Juan Island. His interest in photography and desire to maintain a year-round island life led him to open a retail space in Friday Harbor.
Up until just recently, he was commuting back and forth to Siberia, helping the Russians drill better oil wells. Now he is offering a different kind of service, one that sits much closer to his heart: photography.
Concepia is photography gallery and studio, offering large-format printing, standard and custom framing, photography bookstore, Web site design, and technology and photography tutoring.
About Randy Laybourne's show, "Going":
This series of photographs captured during a journey from California to British Columbia showcases Laybourne's talent as a photographer. Shot with a variety of cameras and films, it documents the small nuances of life that we often walk straight past.
From aging roller-coasters to commercial signs, Laybourne's range of subjects is diverse, but the emotional connection is consistent throughout. It's classic Americana photography, but with a focus on the unusual.
