This weekend’s events are a great mix of the old guard (PL Di Corcia, Paul Graham, Jack Pierson) and some newer and emerging photographers. Thanks to Andrew Hetherington aka The Jakanory, for becoming blogland’s premier provider of photo events, gossip & info. I must admit to have become completely dependent on his info, I am fascinated on how he finds all this stuff, he is the commercial photo world’s Walter Winchell. I am definitely going to go to this find:


Collapsing Images Forum

As a counter-point to the visual conversation provided by the magazine, the Collapsing Images Forum aims to give a voice to the issues surrounding photography, and discuss the role of photography in the media and popular culture. Collapsing Images presents three vital discussions led by leading photographers, filmmakers and critics.

Part I A Conversation between Jack Pierson & Jerry Schatzberg (2:00 pm)
Part II Money, Money, Money, Money (4:30 pm)
Part III Truth and Authenticity in Photography (7:30 pm)

This event is co-sponsored by Blind Spot in association with Fred & Associates.

Blind Spot is the international source book of photography-based fine art for artists, collectors, creative directors, designers, curators and art lovers. Blind Spot publishes new works by the renowned artists and discovers vital new work by up-and-coming artists. Fourteen years old, Blind Spot has gained an international reputation for being a visual magazine that does not talk about imagery—the content is imagery.

And my pick of the week is:


A Field Guide to the North American Family Book Launch. The exhibition will open at Gallery Bar (120 Orchard Street) on Thursday, December 6, but for now, we would like to invite you to attend the book’s launch party tonight at Housing Works Used Book Cafe.

We hope to see you there. Now, go buy the book:

The Field Guide opening is being curated by my Friends, The Humble Arts Foundation, which is a pioneering online photography gallery. In the flickr debates, they have emerged as a serious & thoughtful contribution to the fine art photo community. I think we will see a lot more from them in the future. The book features many of the photo blogging worlds most well known names. Some photogs worth a look from the book.
