Peripheral Visions Eric T. Kunsman

The inaugural opening featured Booksmart Studio’s founder Eric Kunsman with his exhibition Peripheral Visions. This exhibition contains 25 panoramic images from the Southwest of the United States. These images, with many of the images being over 240º, they extend beyond the peripheral vision and challenge viewers to question reality.
