---- — EXETER —Attend the artist reception for Brentwood photographer Roger Goun of Brentwood on Sat., August 10, from 2:00-4:00 p.m. at the Seacoast Artist Association Gallery, 225 Water Street, Exeter.
As the artist featured in August and September, Goun will be displaying black and white prints depicting motorcycle enthusiasts during Bike Week at Daytona Beach, Florida in March. Refreshments will be served.
Goun says the goal of his street photography is to re-tell, through pictures, the human stories he sees playing out around him. At their best, these images reveal some insight he has discerned about the subject. When subject and viewer are from different backgrounds or subcultures, he imagines listening for the sound of preconceived notions being shredded.
In March Goun drove for three days from New Hampshire to Daytona Beach, Florida for Bike Week, an enormous gathering of motorcycle enthusiasts. The biker milieu is a distinct subculture, one that projects an outlaw facade - at least partly to keep the outside world at arm’s length.
