Artist Statement:

The Lure of the Local is a photographic exhibition by Jim Hansen.  The photographs celebrate the power of the local and the ordinary.  Rather than heroic landscapes or large cities, these photos are about the things we see and touch daily and their ability to resonate with people everywhere. 


The thirty-three color images were captured and archivally printed using the latest digital technology.   Their sizes range from 16x20 to 24x36 inches.
