Take a look at photos
The Hardware Store Restaurant will continue to exhibit the photography of Calle Holcombe throughout March. Holcombe is a Vashon High School graduate who is currently enrolled in her senior year at Academy of Art University in San Francisco.
She is currently working on a photo essay of Death Valley for a nationally published travel periodical.
Her current exhibit at The Hardware Store Restaurant shows places she has traveled, people in her life and her fascination with small details and pieces of everyday life that are sometimes overlooked, she said.
