JDC Fine Art is pleased to debut "Gardens of Paradise," new works by San Diego-based photographer Paul Turounet. His images are taken in the city of excess, Las Vegas, Nevada.

Exhibition Dates: December 7, 2013 – February 28, 2014
Opening Reception with the Artist: Saturday, December 7 5:00 – 7:30 pm

Secrets stay behind and anything goes in this desert playground, and "Gardens of Paradise" embraces the grit thinly veiled by symbols of vanity- the pools and gardens of the strip.

Images from this series are taken directly from a section of the Vegas strip known as Paradise. Here prostitution is legal, and images of girls are handed out like candied promises on cards with “glamour shots” and phone numbers.

Card-snappers compete and pass out cards to anyone whose hands graciously or begrudgingly takes them. Turounet smartly leaves us free to indulge in both sumptuous and guiltless viewing.

Location: JDC Fine Art, 2400 Kettner Blvd, San Diego, CA 92101 Google Map
