III Points: Photographer John Sevigny Makes His Miami Debut With "Wilderness of Mirrors"

III Points kicked off last night, and that means different things for different attendees, depending on what you fancy for the weekend. Some of you will be cruising from barbecue to barbecue; some will be flailing about to the sounds of Miami Horror and XXYYXX; while others still will be ponderously digesting works from the likes of David Lynch and Charles Bradley.

Enter John Sevigny. Sevigny is a 44 year old photographer who has been teaching, writing, shooting, and showing his work around the country and around the world since '98. On his website, he describes himself as "a photographic artist, writer and teacher who is seldom in any one place very long. A German Expressionist who can't paint, an armchair art historian and a lover of the Great Books..." He also happens to hail from South Miami and this Saturday at the Seminole Building in Wynwood will mark the first exhibition Sevigny has ever had in his hometown.
