The first ever New York Photo Festival is in full swing this weekend. Sadly, taking down the New England Survey exhibition and artists dropping off and overall gallery prep for EXPOSURE: 13th Annual PRC Juried Exhibition is keeping me close to the fold here in Boston. Neverthless, we wish them the best and have a few neat PRC/Boston overlaps to note! Congratulations all!

Our 2008 PRC juror Lesley A. Martin is one of the curators of the festival. She put together a wonderful exhibition, Ubiquitous Image, which includes Penelope Umbrico, represented locally by Bernard Toale Gallery, whom I showed most recently in the PRC exhibition Ad/Agency.

A few names of note made the inaugural NY Photo Awards list under fine art single images and series. Martin Fougeron has been getting a lot of attention as of late and will be in our upcoming juried show. Jessica Todd Harper, who was in the 2005/2006 PRC exhibition Group Portrait, makes the list as does local imagemaker (and the photographer of the Boston Superheros Project) Tanit Sakakini.

When dropping off her work for the juried show yesterday, Claire Beckett told me that she was invited by Laurel Ptak of Aperture and i heart photograph to be on an Aperture panel. She’ll speak on Sunday with photographer Nina Berman, a sort of before and after Iraq. Claire was in our 2006 PRC exhibition, DOCUMENT, and was interviewed this week in Big, Red, and Shiny.

Consider this an open invitation to add any other
connections/kudos in the comments!

For those heading to NY, have a safe trip. Please take lots of pictures and share them with us will you?
