"Rescue 2: Before the Call" by Romeo Okwara - Opening Reception and Talk

About this Event

Leica Store Bellevue is very pleased to present, "Rescue 2: Before The Call", an intimate photo essay by Romeo Okwara of the firemen from the acclaimed Rescue Company 2 Firehouse in Bedford–Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. Please join us for this special event as we start the exhibition with an opening reception on Sunday, February 23, at 1:00PM.

"I'm excited to show what these firefighters do, giving people the inside scoop on what it's like to run into burning building to save lives."

From the moment Romeo entered Rescue 2, he felt at home with the all-too-familiar locker room atmosphere as a professional athlete. His photography shows a sensitive but realistic view of the daily lives and stress of firemen waiting for The Call.

Opening Reception: February 23, 2020 | 1 PM

Exhibition Duration: February 23 – April 4, 2020

This event is free to attend and for all ages. Registration Required.
