Scene of the Crime

Still no word on the missing photograph. No mysterious ransom note asking for $10,000 in monopoly money. But I did take the opportunity to revisit the scene of the crime and make some adjustments to my Artomatic display.

Stolen!

I was alerted today that the photograph above was missing from my Artomatic display. The religious posters in the image were shot in Mumbai and then superimposed on the columns of the Supreme Court building.  The stolen print is number 1 in an edition of 10. The piece is in a 17″ x 22″ wood […]

I checked out the New York Photo Festival last month in DUMBO. The neighborhood itself, becoming a focus for photography galleries and studios, made for a worthwhile destination. In fact, the weather was so nice I saw more photographers spread out on the grass alongside the river than inside the exhibition spaces. ANTI-Plano at the […]

I finally looked back through the various cards and artist bios I collected a couple of weeks ago at Art Chicago and NEXT. Here are a few artists that caught my interest: Galería Leyendecker, based in the Canary Islands, was showing (photo) a series of large-format photographic prints from a film by German artist Julian […]
