I didn’t expect to be back in New York so quickly after dvafoto’s visit last week, but this is especially exciting for me. I’m pleased to announce my work, China Everbright, will be shown as part of the New York Photo Festival in Slideluck Potshow XVI on May 14, 2011, in Brooklyn, New York. The slideshows for the evening–from a breathtaking assortment of photographers–were curated by Whitney Johnson, who has just recently been named Director of Photography for the New Yorker. The event is at St. Ann’s Warehouse at 38 Water Street in DUMBO, Brooklyn, New York, from 5:30p-10:30p.
The photographers selected for the evening are: Alex Fradkin, Alex Webb, Benjamin Sklar, Bruce Gilden, Carolyn Drake, Chris Hondros, Dominic Bracco, Dominic Nahr, Elena Dorfman, James Pomerantz, JR, Krisanne Johnson, Iwan Baan, Landon Nordeman, Luca Zanier, Luis Ladron de Guevara, Lyle Owerko, M. Scott Brauer, M. Wesley Ham, Mari Bastashevski, Mark Peterson, Martin Usborne, Matt Eich, Melanie Burford, Michael Christopher Brown, Natasja Fourie, Peter DiCampo, Phillip Toledano, Platon, Rinko Kawauchi, Stefano de Luigi, Steve Pyke, Steven Brahms, and Tim Hetherington. I’m excited to have my work shown in the company of so many talented and inspiring photographers; if you asked me for a list of my photographic idols, that list would be a goood start.
I also have one image in a slideshow presented by PDN at the New York Photo Festival, but I’m a little unsure on when and where that will be shown.
I hope you can make it to the event. If you’re there, please say hello. Here’s what I look like.
“I really don’t have the desire to go to another country and make the kind of pictures that I make. There’s so much to do here…” -Brenda Ann Kenneally for BagNewsNotes
Thanks to Michael Shaw of BagNewsNotes for writing in to let us know about Brenda Ann Kenneally’s recent slideshow discussion of her work from Troy, New York at the BagNews Salon. The work is powerful, but hearing Kenneally talk about why she photographs what she does, especially the personal connection to her subject matter, drives the work even deeper. Well worth a watch.
The more you said, in some ways, the more you took away” -Eugene Richards on the lack of text in The Blue Room
Foto8 has just published a short slideshow and accompanying artist’s lecture featuring Eugene Richards‘ latest book, “The Blue Room” (previously). This is the largest selection from the book that I’ve seen online. There’s sparse information about the talk on the Foto8 website, but I think it’s likely a recording from this event.
update: Here’s foto8′s official page for the slideshow.
Continuing our posts on Seamus Murphy, here’s “Carry on up the Gulag: Interview with Seamus Murphy” at Dispatches’ site. Murphy talks a bit about the process of photographing Russia for Dispatches’ issue “On Russia” and shares some stories behind individual pictures. And if you’re in London on Wed., April 29, 2009, at 6:30 p.m., head on over to the Honduras Street Gallery for a conversation between Seamus Murphy and Gary Knight.
