“Off the Beaten Path,” a solo exhibition of 50 fine art photographs by local photographer Bob Estrin, will be showcased at ASU Gammage on the ASU Tempe campus, Dec. 5 to Dec. 31. Estrin’s photographs showcase scenes of the Southwest and images that give clues to the past such as rusty cars and abandoned objects.

Estrin is a traveling photographer, takings his camera off the beaten path to capture the magic, creating some of the most captivating and unique images that invoke a deep sense of place and the stories that place might reveal. 

While he has an interest in photographing a wide variety of subjects, Estrin’s main theme is exploring objects that represent the past – ones where it would be difficult to tell if the subject was photographed last week or 20 years ago. With this in mind he focuses on exploring old abandoned homes, buildings, trucks, or even the main streets of small-town America.

Estrin displays his art around the Valley at venues including the Tempe Library, ASU Gammage, Arizona Museum for Youth and Boyce Thompson Arboretum. He has been featured in the Arizona Republic and selected as Phoenix Magazine’s artist of the month.

Exhibit hours at ASU Gammage are 1 to 4 p.m., Mondays, or by appointment by calling 480-965-6912. The street address is 1200 S. Forest Ave., Tempe. Parking is available at meters around the perimeter of ASU Gammage. Entrance is through East Lobby Doors at the Box Office.
