PHOENIX - Feb. 1, 2016 - PRLog -- Shade Projects is proud to present The Passenger, the solo photography exhibition of Wayne Rainey in Bokeh Gallery. This exhibition showcases Rainey’s latest body of work exploring the idea of myth and retelling the oldest stories.  Rainey takes on the role of the silent watcher, illustrating his own stories set in modern times in an exciting urban landscape.
