New York in Black and White

April 25, 2012

 

I’m usually in love with Chroma. And recently my work has been all about color. Actually my work has always been all about color. But every once in a while. I will take a walk through NYC photographing in Black and White.

It’s always fascinating when you strip New York of all that hue and what remains are shapes, reflections and edges. Here are a couple of images I shot recently that I want to share with you.

Resurfacing with AIPAD

April 1, 2012

I’ve been quiet. Quietly attending to my new born daughter, Siya. She is now 3 months old and we have all survived the insanity. It’s been special beyond words.

AIPAD was my first photo event of the year and I was very happy to see the works of the following three artists

George Georgiou who I have previously blogged about on Ishaara. I’ve always been a fan of his images and to see them in person made me incredibly happy. Here is an image from his series Fault Lines.

I also loved the prints of Robert Platt Lynes who’s works are currently on view at the Steven Kasher Gallery.

All three prints I saw on the wall were sold within the first couple days of AIPAD! No surprise there. Here is an image

for you. Also feel free to read Elizabeth Avedon’s words on his works.

And finally Elinor Caruchi’s prints were on view with Sasha Wolf Gallery. Elinor’s series Born looks particularly gorgeous in person. Here is one of my favorite images from the series.
