July 17--Music icons star in photo exhibit

The work of Detroit photographer Jeremy Deputat is featured in "Nothing Is Forever," his debut solo exhibition at Inner State Gallery.

Through portraiture and travel photography, the photos explores global music icons and pop culture over the last decade. Eminem, Kid Rock, 50 Cent, Mayer Hawthorne and Rick Rubin are among the subjects photographed by Deputat, who has shot album and magazine covers as well as press photos.

The exhibit's title, according to Deputat, comes from the notions that nothing lasts forever and that photography captures slices of time that will not be repeated.

"I've been blessed to travel all over the world, and being around different people and cultures is interesting and inspiring to me," Deputat says.

After an opening reception (7-11 p.m. Friday), the exhibit will run 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Thursday-Saturday through Aug. 15. Inner State Gallery is at 1410 Gratiot in Detroit. 313-744-6505. www.innerstategallery.com.
