magaly ponce's whale-inspired multi-media exhibit

Last month my friend Magaly Ponce organized a whale-watching trip. Magaly has been volunteering on a boat for the summer, videotaping, and recording whales. Our outing was breathtaking, gorgeous weather, and a sighting of six whales, two of them babies. As we were leaving, three of them jumped out of the water for a triple breach finale, a very rare occurrence. It gives me goosebumps just to think of that moment. Whales are magical.

And so is Magaly's exhibit now on view at 65 Eddie Street, downtown Providence. I have captured just a small portion of the experience Magaly created, visit it yourself for the closing this Thursday, the 16th, during Providence's gallery night.
