Every once in awhile we like to remind readers of the Star’s commitment to the visual arts. This time we bring you the work of another local scion. Renowned photographer Joe Iano is perhaps better known for his photos of people–especially performing artists. Here he shows us that he has another dimension as well, in the form of this photo-series that evokes the spirit of the land and the city around us. You will definitely want to view these at full size. Enjoy.
