Please join me at two exciting events. For a quicker read, I've started with a high level summary followed by full descriptions.
December 8 - Truer in the Slideluck Auction Benefit at Sandbox Studio in Tribeca.
December 10 & 11 - OPEN STUDIO New work and moving to a spacious, daylight studio in Sunset Park is the occasion for this event. Please join me, for large prints, wine and cheese.
Slideluck Auction Fundraiser Why attend? The Party For those who don’t know Slideluck, their parties are known to overflow with the some of the brightest stars in the industry. Sotheby's will run the live auction which features almost 50 works. Bron Imaging is providing a mistletoe photobooth.
The Artists The list of artists who are donating work for this auction is truly phenomenal, a short list includes Elinor Carucci, Phillip Toledano, Jan Von Holleben, Vincent Laforet, Andrew Hetherington, Ruben Natal-San Miguel and more, auction preview here.
The Food Speaking to the foodies now, Slideluck is known for combining a serious passion for photography with a hard core appreciation of culinary delights. 7 underground supper clubs are serving locally sourced dinner and dessert. Wine will be poured by the Noble Rot and for the beer drinkers, know that Brooklyn Brewery is in full support. Now to the most important part. The Cause.
Youth Empowerment through Photography Proceeds from this event will go to the organization and their Youth Initiative which works nationally and globally to empower underprivileged kids through photography and multimedia storytelling. As a kid growing up in Seattle, I was personally transformed by youth empowerment programs. In college, I then discovered documentary film-making. From there, my whole life changed. I know firsthand how monumental it can be to gain access to these tools. In telling my own story, my world opened up. I have always been troubled by the elitist implications of the cost of being an image maker. I worry about the artists who will never get near a gallery or a magazine assignment simply because the financial barrier– without our intervention–is insurmountable. How amazing to have an opportunity to support an organization that disrupts this model. What stories will these young people tell us? What artists will emerge from their ranks? Join the fun and purchase a ticket.
