New York Photo Festival Begins this week!


The New York Photo Festival returns to Brooklyn for its sophomore year, and look! Jody Quon, one of my favorite photo editors is receiving top billing as a show curator (you do have a New York Magazine subscription for the photos, right?)

And since you can’t get enough of me, perhaps you can heckle me while I do my first talk on the presentation stage entitled “Click, Tweet, Repeat: Why taking good pictures isn’t enough to succeed in the 21st century“. Ain’t that a catchy title? Here’s the details:

Saturday, May 16, 2009
630 pm – 730pm

Spend the afternoon in DUMBO looking at the cool photography, catch me talking about photography, and you can still be home in time to watch NUMB3RS (or whatever one watches on a Saturday night).

Also, don’t miss the show curated by PhotoShelter alumnae Meagan Ziegler-Haynes and erstwhile blogger, Rachel Hulin, entitled (super)natural which is showing in the Tobacco Warehouse. Details on Meagan’s website.


And our friends over at Redux are also having a panel discussion of their new American Youth book with some of the photographers like Gina LeVay, Mark Peterson, and Nathaniel Welch.
