Exhibit honors photog Chris Radok

Posted By on Fri, Oct 5, 2012 at 9:48 AM

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 a series of related events celebrating Radok's life and work: Those include Tar & Nicotine: Photographs of Chris Radok, a Baku Gallery showcase of 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. The exhibit opens with a reception on Oct. 5 and runs through Oct. 31. 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. Opening reception on Oct. 5, 6 p.m.-10 p.m. Exhibit continues through Oct. 31. Baku Gallery, 3200 N. Davidsion St.
