It is gratifying and humbling for me to have experienced how so many people and organizations came together for this exhibition project. Light Work, Syracuse University, the Society for Photographic Education, the New York Foundation for the Arts, the indie Photobook Library and close to 50 individual artists all played important roles in this endeavor. The reception was packed and the response was great. So many thanked us for all the work we put into it but, honestly, it was such a pleasure! I'm particularly grateful to Willson Cummer, Larissa Leclair and Hannah Frieser for their invaluable participation. Enjoy the reception pictures that are here and all over Facebook! The installation photos serve as a record of the exhibition and can be found here on their own page. Thanks to everyone who took part and to the many who attended the exhibition. What a totally awesome blast it has been!
I debated whether we could accommodate this piece as it is extremely space-consuming. The concept and audacious execution were hard to pass on, but the artist will be assisting with our installation as his piece will require some special attention. Come see Ben Altman's idea of a photobook this weekend in Syracuse!
