I am very excited about this show and the public opening on May 13th.
Please come out and enjoy the exhibition and take in the New York Photo Festival's opening night as well.
The week of May 13-17 DUMBO is overtaken by NYPH09, a huge photo festival that has a gazillion exhibitions, lectures, panels and just all things photo. Check out the link below and come on by.
Our opening is sponsored by Vitamin Water and Crop Circle Beer (My new favorite beer..it's yummy).

I love their Critical Mass book competition...you should submit...
If you are in Portland, come find me and buy me a microbrew.
Wish I was there to do this...it looked like fun.
Print with Swoon!!
This place is cool, and you can get in for only $20 a year, worth the trip to Brooklyn and you really don't need a passport!

We have a couple events lined up during the show.
First...There is a soft opening on May 7th, which is the DUMBO First Thursday's art event. Feel free to come on by and take a sneak preview before the main opening party May 13th.
The opening party will be May 13th 7-9pm and is scheduled to coincide with the opening night of the NYPhotoFestival. It's going to be a madhouse over here that night (our opening is sponsored by Vitamin Water and Crop Circle Beer), so get here early.
RSG suggests you attend the Opening of PhotoFest which will be at Powerhouse Books at 6pm, then come over here at 7pm, meet the artists and catch the show, then head out for one of the many local events surrounding the Festival in the area....then if you are still standing, hit the PhotoFest After party down the block at 9pm.
We will also have Martin Schoeller's book "Female Body Builders" available during the show. Martin will be here on Saturday, May 16th at 1pm for a book signing. Don't miss that.
We hope to see you during the show!!!

Thekla Ehling and Marco Delogu
Please check out the website to see some of their work. They are both wonderful photographers and create beautiful work that is thought provoking and emotionally moving.
Thekla will have her first US Solo show here in June!!!
I met German based, Thekla Ehling at last years NY PhotoFest. She had this wonderful artist book that I adored. She was also part of the FOAM Magazine exhibit. Well, I took her card and put it up near my computer and it was there all year till she found me in Miami during art fair. She had had the book published and presented me with a copy..A week later, she was on my artist list.
Her work, Sommerherz, is a beautiful slice of life, personal and carefree, like the Summers we had as kids, on endless vacation, exploring and lying around, taking in the experience and capturing it as a lifelong memory. Her work makes me smile, endlessly, and god knows we all need an endless smile after the last 6 months.
Come see her show in June and lose yourself in the images.
Marco Delogu is one of those photographers that live and breathe his country. He is Italian and his work is all about Italy and it's people. From Vatican Cardinals to hard core criminal assassins in prison, Delogu is there with his large format camera to capture it. His work is deep and rich in black and white, full of mystery and emotion, life and passion.
In February I decided to move the gallery from Washington DC, to the DUMBO district of Brooklyn, NY. I know, crazy...but why not!
DUMBO is a wonderful place. It is establishing itself as a solid destintion for the photographic community with galleries, publishers, agencies and photo creatives all coming to work and play here. It is a great community, vibrant with a happening night life.. Accessible from NYC by train, car or walk within minutes.
In May, the NY PhotoFestival takes place in DUMBO and attracts some 30,000 people during the week long event. All the local galleries present amazing exhibitions and the festival invites 4 curators to put together a selection of talented photographic artists. There are also lectures and panel discussions that are not to be missed.
All this was a big draw to DUMBO. Mainly, I felt the gallery and the artists would thrive better in the NY environment and at this moment...a positive outlook and forward direction is essential to navigate our changing times.
I do hope you will come by and see the new space. We are located in the 111 Front Street Building on the corner of Front and Washington. Look for the orange door.
Best train to take is the F to York st. (first Brooklyn Stop) or the A, C to High Street. (first stop). When here, walk around the neighborhood, there are amazing shops and places to eat and several great watering holes (I like reBar).
Here is a pic of the space....See you soon!!!
