Leslie Ostrander and Matt Marka join photography and music in a new book, The Pauses Between. This seven inch book is a collection of medium format Polaroid photographs taken by Leslie and includes a 6 song EP written and recorded by Matt. See the results of their 4-year collaboration at the book release party at Homewood Studios on Friday, August 17th from 6:00pm to 9:00pm. Matt will be playing a solo acoustic set of songs beginning at 7:30pm. Copies of the book, prints and CDs will be available for sale.

About the artists, Leslie writes: Having grown up in rural Wisconsin, I spent most of my time chasing light in the fields & woods. I bought myself my first camera when I was 8, on layaway from a local department store, & have been capturing images ever since. After receiving my BFA from UW-Stout, I now call Minneapolis home & have been taking photographs professionally for the last 10 years. If I did not also take time to walk with trees, make pretty things, knit or be surrounded by music I would turn into a pumpkin. And Matt adds, I've been writing/playing music for over 20 years now in various bands/projects including naked bob, Dog Day, brittle, Ada Jane, and some solo work as well. I still love it. I still feel a need to do it, and this project is a nice change from the write, record, tour cycle that I've been in for those 20 years. On a side note, I don't trust CEO's, politicians, towing companies, or people who count beets as one of their favorite foods.

Opening Reception Friday, August 17th from 6p to 9p
