Tuesday evening a reception will be held at City Hall to kick off local photographer Nanda Rust’s latest exhibit featuring Chelsea Clock.

City Hall stated in a press release: Now is your chance to gain an inside perspective through beautiful photography of one of the oldest and most beloved Chelsea businesses — Chelsea Clock! Local photographer Nanda E. Rust had the pleasure of befriending the company and has become their inside photographer. [The exhibit will showcase] images from the old building on Everett Avenue, the move of the facility, and an inside perspective of their new location on 2nd Street in Chelsea, [while featuring] portraits of employees, machinery, and the true workmanship Chelsea Clock has loved and maintained for well over a century. There will also be collectors showcasing limited historical Chelsea Clocks!

We’re excited and honored to have been chosen as the subject behind Rust’s lens.

“I chose Chelsea Clock to showcase at City Hall for several reasons,” says Rust. “First, I love the little guy. Big-box companies make me feel sad and overwhelmed by their power, their monopolies. What brings me joy is supporting small, local companies and stores. Chelsea Clock is one of those companies who still cares about their craftsmanship, their customers, and their end product.”

 

“Portrait and documentation-style photography is one of my favorite combinations,” says Rust. “Befriending the Chelsea Clock company was a natural progression and an easy opportunity to do what I love best.”

We hope you’ll come out to City Hall to support two local independent purveyors: photographer Nanda Rust and her happy subject for this exhibit, Chelsea Clock!
