Some well-known photo gallery owners got their start as photographers, and now they are taking their turn in the spotlight as part of an exhibition called Don’t Quit Your Day Job. The show is a lighthearted indulgence in the fantasy of “what might have been” had the gallery owners decided to pursue careers as photographers instead. Some of those participating have continued to practice photography on the side, while others put down their cameras years ago, and never looked back. Hasted Kraeutler is hosting the exhibition. While some of the photographs are on loan for exhibition only, most are for sale. The proceeds will be donated to Lotus House Women’s Shelter, located in one of Miami’s poorest neighborhoods.
