Exhibit News

I have some images in two exhibits. The first is up now at the Brooklyn Public Library. It's part of an exhibit of photographs of religious communities across New York City. The four images of mine are from an ongoing documentary project I've been working on in Flushing. Below is one image from the show as well as a postcard promo. Stop by if you're in the area. The opening party is on Feb. 5th.

There will be another more extensive, although not comprehensive or particularly huge, exhibit later this spring at the Queens Museum of Art's exhibit as part of the 350th celebration of the Flushing Remonstrance. (Quick history lesson: This was the first time colonial settlers put on paper the idea that the colonies in 1657 should be a place where "men" should be able to worship freely as they chose. Long story short, they won the fight and it, at least philosophically, laid the groundwork for the Freedom of Religion part of the First Ammendment, although there is no direction connection that can be made between the two.)
