I am so proud and excited to announce that I will be showing in my first NYC exhibition next Tuesday, February 24th! It should be a fabulous night of photography, fun and friends, and I can't wait to see all the other mentees' work. Coordinated by the Young Photographer's Alliance, you can get tickets here (and the tickets are donation-based, so fear not for your wallet!), and there will be plenty of food and drink, so dress your best and come support! I can't wait to see many familiar faces on such an exciting and monumental night in my life.
This infamous graffiti-covered factory building was one of the most inspiring discoveries I made when I first became acquainted with New York City. I couldn't wait to go explore it with my camera to capture the best parts of it (even if it wasn't quite following their rules).
A year later, and I'm very glad I didn't completely respect their wishes. On Nov. 19th, the multitude of talented works of art were whitewashed to make room for a condo complex, despite public protest. In memory of the beautiful endeavors of those artists' works, here's some of the photographs I took last year.
I wish I could supply credit to the various graffiti artists who made these, but at least we can all appreciate their efforts.
