Guest: Simon Gentry, photographer and owner of The Photobooth on Montrose.

Simon Gentry is like me: he is an expatriate (he's from the UK). We have one important thing in common: we like to talk about how we got to Houston and why we love living here.

Simon works with performing artists in town. At night, his Photobooth on Montrose turns into a performing art space open to anyone - even those who choose not to enter since they can watch from outside. The place is one big glass box, the ultimate act of artistic transparency and is there a better place for this concept than Houston? I think not.

Check out his work and upcoming shows on his Facebook page which you can access through here: and do yourself a favor: check out a chow at the Photobooth. At the very least, you’ll meet nice, interesting people.
