      Youth's art exhibit showcases skate park

      Hodges' pictures started out as a school project

      A young man is sharing two of his passions with folks in Albany.

      Justin Hodges spends a lot of time at the skate park in downtown Albany and started taking pictures initially for a school project, but it soon grew into something more.

      He says he wants people to ponder these pictures while the world is talking about education and the state of the economy they are leaving for future generations.

      The project as a whole was about the youth being able to handle the future they're being left with, says Hodges.

      The show runs through January 31 at the Carnegie Library downtown, Monday through Friday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
