Join us in ARCHITECTURE AND PHOTOGRAPHY at the School of Visual Arts

If you have been enjoying this blog and are in the NYC area, join me in the classroom at the School of Visual Arts for my favorite class of all time to teach, ARCHITECTURE & PHOTOGRAPHY at the School of Visual Arts. Combining lecture, in-class shooting time, special assignments, and critique, this class will give you a solid basis from which to appreciate and create architectural pictures. We look at lots of amazing fine art and commercial photographers such as Ezra Stoller, Julius Shulman, Edouard Baldus, Andrew Moore, Richard Pare, and Robert Polidori. Sign up now as class begins next Friday September 23. Hope to see you there!

Yours truly now represented by the wonderful Wall Space Gallery in Santa Barbara, CA

I am pleased to announce that I am now represented by Wall Space Gallery in Santa Barbara, CA, under the direction of the stellar Crista Dix. I am honored to be part of this phenomenal group of artists.

And we're off! First opening night in Chelsea

September 8 marked the official beginning of gallery season---dealers back from the Hamptons, artists back from their residencies, and art lovers back from the beach all showed up for the openings. One fun show was Nick Cave's blond yeti-creatures at Jack Shainman Gallery. At Yancey Richardson Gallery Helen Van Meene turned her lens from children and adolescents to dogs and Amy Elkins showed portraits of slightly bloodied rugby players. Over at Yossi Milo Gallery Pieter Hugo opened the season with large, post- apocalyptic portraits of trash-pickers at the giant technology dumps in Ghana. Shen Wei's captivating landscapes at Julie Saul showed a wonderful contrast between the Israeli desert scenery and the sites of politically charged events.
