Photogs / Photo Exhibits This is the place to discuss a particular Photographer (work, style, life, whatever), as well as to post Gallery and Museum Photo Exhibitions and your own impressions of them. As we march on in this new digital world, it is often too easy to forget about the visual importance of the photographic print, as well as their financial importance to the photographer. It is also interesting to remember that some guy named Gene Smith shot with lenses that many lens test reading "never had a picture published in their life" amateurs would turn up their their noses at, as being "unacceptable."

NYC 2nd week in May

M and I will be visiting our son in NYC for the second week of May. Any recommendations for photo exhibits-photo related events to see? I am looking forward to the Tim Hetherington gallery show. Beyond that we are open to film, paint, vocal...anything.

PS-Any tips for a a great locally brewed beer will be greatly appreciated.

Brooklyn Brewery. Be forewarned, the beer is good but it's not Deschutes Nitro drawn Obsidian Stout. I've had that precious nectar only once in my life. Drove up 17 hours from the LA area to visit friends in the Portland area and we went to the Deschutes brewery in Bend. Mmmm.
I used to live on Whidbey Island.
I digress.
There are great pubs around but if you want local beer, I'd say the Brooklyn Brewery is your ticket.
You might want to get this posted or cross-posted in the NYC RFF club forum as well. We like beer. And photography stuff.

EDIT: I completely got sidetracked by beer talk. As for galleries to check out, all I can offer right now is the Leica Gallery at 670 Broadway. Then there's always the MOMA, Metropolitan Museum, and a few other big ones.

I can't remember the last time I went to the Brooklyn Brewery.

It's that good.

I feel Brooklyn Brewery is completely overrated. There are plenty of great beer bars in NYC... go to them instead.

Cindy Sherman at MoMA. Can't miss that.

Go to the ICP. They almost always have something worth seeing.

I live in NYC and I don't do anything. I don't go to galleries, I avoid crowds of doofi when possible and I drink mostly whatever Weissbeer is cheapest at the store. Or White Horse.

I like it that way. I go to flea markets on weekends.

A lot of kids are embarrassed when their parents visit, but a lot of them are too polite to say so.

Nick Brandt has a exhibition that you might be able to make
http://www.nickbrandt.com/Text_page.cfm?pID=2704

haven't been there to see it yet but i've always been a fan of his work. If modern art is not your thing then stay away from MoMA. If your curious fridays 4-8 admission is free.

Whitney has the Biennial and the Guggenheim has Francesca Woodman. Then take a trip to the top of the MET and have a beer.

ICP has a Weegee exhibit (a personal favorite) and also a Magnum contact sheets show, both of which are small but good.

The Magnum contacts are truly amazing, mark-ups and all.
