Wedesday This & That

© Michele Abeles

Today is the last day to the the Nymphoto Conversatiosn Volume 1 Show at Sasha Wolf Gallery and then it is on to Nymphoto Presents @ Sasha Wolf. Another great show that features work by Jen Davis, Tiana Markova-Gold, Victoria Hely-Hutchinson, Jennifer Boomer and many others. The reception for this exhibit will be after the holiday weekend on May 28th, 2009.

Tomorrow night however is the opening reception for a group show that features the work of one of my all time favorite photographers: Michele Abeles. I'm not kidding, I think she is that good. And Michele is a lovely person too. You can see Michele's work at Bellwether Gallery in Chelsea starting tomorrow.
And another photograperI really love has returned to blogging/posting images: Patrick Romero. Yeah! Check it out here: patrickromero.blogspot.com.

My tastes in photography are broad and I love good commcercial photography. I loved last week's cover of The New York Times Style Magazine (shot by Camilla Akrans) and my friend Catherine Servel's new site shows some great example of contemporary fashion photography.
Camilla Akrans shot her story in Greece, a place I want to visit soon. In the eternal words of Liz Lemon: "I want to go to there" or as The Jasperinos would say "I need to go there" :)

Urban Gardening

© Nina Buesing

My dream is to end up with a home in Manhattan with a little outdoor space. But that will have to wait. So in the mean time I just added some flowerpots outside my side windows.
In Europe people always seem to beautify there homes with flowers and even the tiniest of balconies is turned into a little oasis.
