I have mentioned many times before how circular my photo-land journey has been. For instance, my work is currently in a show at Hous Projects, with Amy Elkins, my co-creator of Women in Photography, with Jen Davis, who I have obsessively admired since I saw her work in Aperture during school, with Brian Ulrich who was one of the first artists I reached out to when I got out of school and who has been an amazing help to me, and with Eric Ogden who was one of our most important clients at the photo lab I worked at while I was studying. It means so much to me to be in a show with artists I admire (I mean I am on the wall with Hank Willis Thomas!) especially when so many of them were a part of my life before I even had a glimmer of a career of my own. It was also fitting that the show was curated by Ruben Natal-San Miguel, who was the first person to ever buy my work and who has been my best cheerleader ever since.
So I am so pleased to now have the chance to share the news of Ruben’s debut New York exhibition at Kris Graves Projects:
RUBEN NATAL-SAN MIGUEL
NY, NY: Concrete Jungle
March 4th through April 10th, 2010
An opening reception of these works will be held on Thursday, March 4th, from 6:00-9:00pm
And to continue the tradition, I have known Greg Miller for many years and had the pleasure of working at Redux Pictures many years ago when they hosted an exhibition of his Italy work. I thrilled for them both and look forward to seeing the show. Hope you all can find time during art fair madness to make it to the exhibit, I am sure it will be worth it.
