Tar & Nicotine: Photographs by Chris Radok CL Recommends

When: Oct. 5-31 2012
Price: Free admission
In January 2011, when the first murder of the new year in Charlotte turned out to be a beloved longtime Creative Loafing photographer, we were more than shocked. We were devastated. Chris Radok was a colleague who worked as both a freelancer and full-time photo editor between 1994 and 2006. He was murdered in his home after stumbling on an armed invader. Police charged Antoine Young with the crime. More than a year later, on Oct. 18, Young is slated for arraignment at the Mecklenburg County Courthouse. The announcement on the Chris Radok Memorial Page on Facebook comes with news of an exhibit celebrating Radok's life and work: Tar & Nicotine: Photographs of Chris Radok at Baku Gallery will showcase works by Radok, who fancied fish-eye-lens shots and had a talent for snapping creative and compelling photographs of everything under the sun — or in some grungy music hall. Prints of Radok's works will be available for purchase. More importantly, they'll be on view for all to see as we remember a talent taken away from us too soon.
