CLICK! A Crowd-Curated Exhibition

Click!A Crowd-Curated Exhibition

Open Call Begins March 1

Last month photographers were asked, as part of the Click - Open Call sponsored by the Brooklyn Museum, to submit one photograph that considers Brooklyn's transformation and captures the "changing face(s) of Brooklyn." They welcomed a wide variety of visual interpretations of this topic.

I submitted one of my favorite shots from an ongoing project on Coney Island. They are now ready for you "the crowd" to view and evaluate the works that will become part of the formal museum show scheduled to open in June.

If you click on the lettering box in the image above it will point you to the official site that provides more details about the project concept and the evaluation process. In order to try and keep the evaluations honest no photographer's names are listed and the image order is totally random. There are some amazing images here! You are encouraged to look at them all and help rank them. Registration and verification is very easy and you can go back at any time before May 23rd (last day of evaluations) and pick-up where you left off so you do not have do it all in one sitting. I hope you will take the time to look at the images read the statements and be a part of this unique curatorial and exhibition concept.


Passion Play in Astoria

Heard a loud commotion on my street on Friday the 21st so i grabbed my camera to get some shots of something you don't see too often. For a short while my street reminded me of a Central American village - thankfully, I did not see any real nails or blood and the only one being flagellated was not being hit very hard....


"Nostalgia-Holiday Train"

In celebration of the holiday season, the MTA of NYC linked up some vintage cars from their museum and ran them on the 6 Avenue V line between the Queens Plaza and Lower East Side 2 Av stations every Sunday in December last year. On 12/30/07 one of my neighbors and I joined a bunch of train buffs on the 10:45 out of Queens for a fun trip back down memory lane. Below is my collection of the images captured that morning in a dotPhoto slide show:
