Slow Club in NYC

pier 17
new york

couple of weeks ago i was so happy when i was flicking through a new york summer calender and saw that that night slow club, the wave pictures and casiokids were all playing a mini music festival in the evening. slow club and casiokids are two of my faves, so i was even happier when i saw that it was free. held at pier 17 in seaport, downtown manhattan looking over the brooklyn skyline...beautiful sunset and surrounded by boats gave a rather special setting.

M + B gallery LA

also at the M+B gallery were a few peices by Massimo Vitali. i had seen some of his work earlier that day, so was happy to stumble across some large prints. i love them on them in books and even on the screen, but printed out properly they look amazing. find out more about the gallery and the photographer

M + B Gallery LA

as i have been venturing around the USA, i haven't had much time unfortunately to do much blogging. time now to share a few things which i have enjoyed visually...

first of all...LA

i lovelovelove LA, so much to see and do
something i particualrly enjoyed was the M+B gallery which is currently holding the 'Barack Obama: the freshman' exhibition...

"Lisa Jack, then a student of photography at Occidental College, sought a striking subject for a portrait project and was tipped off about a charismatic freshman named “Barry” Obama who would make an ideal subject.
After the shoot, these images would remain locked away for the next 28 years, until a dare from a friend triggered Lisa Jack to seek them out.
At first worried these images could be used against President Obama, Jack realized they were not incriminating of anything other than being young and self-conscious, and that they offered a unique glimpse into how the man who made history went from being “Barry” to Barack.
This exhibition marks the first time these rare photographs have ever been printed and on display."
