“Off the Beaten Path,” an exhibition of fine art photographs by local photographer Bob Estrin, and works by Tempe photographer Lisa Adamsen, will be showcased at ASU Gammage on the ASU Tempe campus Jan. 3-28.

Estrin’s photographs showcase scenes of the Southwest and images that give clues to the past such as rusty cars and abandoned objects. Estrin is a traveling photographer, takings his camera off the beaten path to capture the magic, creating some of the most captivating and unique images that invoke a deep sense of place and the stories that place might reveal. 

Adamsen describes her photographs as “eclectic,” with various subjects, themes and locations. She says what connects them, be it a neon sign in Idaho or monkeys in the zoo, is that they all had something that caused her “wandering eye to pause for a moment” to capture the image in her photographs.

Exhibit hours at ASU Gammage are 1 to 4 p.m., Mondays, or by appointment by calling 480-965-6912. The street address is 1200 S. Forest Ave., Tempe. Parking is available at meters around the perimeter of ASU Gammage. Entrance is through East Lobby Doors at the Box Office.
