Lauren Carvalho is introducing a new raw talent at her Hidden Lantern Gallery this week: Kyleigh Reynolds.

Although Reynolds has been shooting photos of whatever she sees for half of her young life, she did it for herself until just last year when her boyfriend showed her what her work could look like blown up and transferred onto different objects — such as metal.

"I was amazed when I saw the difference it made and the different look it gave them," she said.

Reynolds took a sample of her work to Carvalho and asked her what she thought. Carvalho liked it so much that she asked if she could feature her work in an exhibit.

The exhibit: "Captured in Metal: Photography on Brushed Aluminum" opened Thursday night and will hang through March 30 at The Hidden Lantern.

Reynolds works with various types of cameras, many of which will be included in the exhibition accompanying the images they produced. Her preferred tool is a 1960 Pentax, given to her by her grandparents, who bought the camera in Germany shortly before the birth of her mother. This was the camera that captured all her mother’s childhood firsts. Consequently, it carries significant sentimental value.
