Instagram may be the easiest way to access the eyes of today’s photographers but phone screens will never encapsulate the patience, attention to detail, nor the composition required in capturing just the right moment a photograph provides.

Seeing photographs up close and personal gives viewers the opportunity to find more details to appreciate.

This is why I’m so happy that  Empire’s own photographer Christopher Nguyen and our homie Phillip Santos were given a platform to present their photos for a gallery they titled VISUALS.

Thanks to Elements SJ, you can now view these guys’ artwork in-person and I highly encourage that you do! I guarantee that their photographs will give you a sense of appreciation for how beautiful our world is.

  1. I totally agree with you. Instagram is awesome and I love it, but there is just something about visiting a gallery that a phone/computer screen can never have – atmosphere.
