The recent OI Board Benefit, held at Oglebay’s Mansion Museum, was a wonderful event, as it always is. The setting and the people seem to make it especially fertile ground for photographers, as we have at least two excellent galleries to share. The first is a trove of shots from the talented eye of event photographer Suzanne Polinski Photography:
The second gallery is something new for Weelunk- fashion commentary. Apparently a thriving city requires that people wear a certain… je ne sais quoi. Which is French for something like, ‘I don’t know anything about clothes’. A few weeks ago someone told me I looked like I was from the movie American Hustle, and I took it as a compliment. But Weelunk photographer Wallis thinks she knows style when she sees it, and at the Board Benefit she pointed her camera at her notion of the most glamorous people, outfits, and accessories. Then she made vague statements to me that I tried to condense into captions.
OI would like to thank its event sponsors: The Health Plan, Bowles Rice and Jackson Kelly.
