Check out this feature on Hill Gallery artist Bill Rauhauser in the weekend edition of The New York Times.
“I took photographs in New York and Chicago, but I could never see a picture there as well as I could in Detroit,” Mr. Rauhauser said in a recent interview. “I think you have to know a place. And I’ve been here all my life.”
In a line that could have been spoken by many Detroit artists generations younger, working now in the city, mostly in obscurity, he added: “I think if I’d been better known, it might have been bad for my work. I took pictures because I liked to see them when I developed them. I thought they looked pretty great.”
