Island photographer displays Seattle series at Bainbridge Island Senior Center

Island photographer Robert Wagoner will display a series of themed images taken throughout the past nine months that documenting the demolition of the Alaskan Way Viaduct in Seattle in a new exhibit.

The show will be on display at the Waterfront Park Community Center through October.

Wagoner, a longtime leading member of the Bainbridge Island Photo Club, said he recently conceived the idea for the “Wall Gallery” and manages the monthly installations for the club.

“The lobby gallery is for members of the BI Photo Club to display their work on a monthly basis,” he said. “I am having a small showing of my abstracted photo images I have taken over the past nine months of the demolition of the Seattle viaduct.”

Wagoner enjoyed a 40-year career as an architect focusing on the design of public buildings. In his passion for photography, he said it has become important for him to see things from a different perspective, to create an alternate meaning and blur the lines of reality, or abstract them, in his images.

The images in the October lobby show are an abstract compilation of his work in the past year to document and create interpretations of an historical moment in Seattle; the demolition of the Alaskan Way Viaduct.

He took the images over the course of its demolition, beginning in February.
