Our former, beloved HFR Art Editor, Adam Thorman, is about to leave the nest. His MFA thesis exhibition, What Light Remains in the Absence, opens with a reception tonight from 7-9 pm in ASU's Northlight Gallery. If you can't make it tonight, the exhibit runs through May 2nd. And if you can't make it to the gallery in person at all, you can view Adam's amazing photos on his website.

What Light Remains in the Absence is a collaborative project featuring photographs by Adam and written works by writers Craig Foltz (from HFR #39), Eoin Galvin, Joe Meno, and Karen Russell.

The project exists in three forms: an exhibition with prints on the wall, as a book that combines the photographs from the exhibition with short stories and poems written or chosen to accompany the images, and on the web in a distilled version of the other two.

The project is simply beautiful. Congratulations to Adam!
