If you’re attending PhotoPlus Expo in New York, please stop by to see the Sony Artisans of Imagery speaking about photography at the Sony Booth on the PhotoPlus Expo trade show floor.
If you’re going to be in New York for the PhotoPlus Expo, catch a photography exhibit showcasing personal projects by the Sony Artisans of Imagery at the Aperture Gallery in New York. The show will also feature photographs from the Sony World Photography Awards Global Tour 2009 on display from October 22 through October 30, 2009.
This photography exhibit at Aperture will include five of the latest images from my photography project on Burlesque. I began photographing the Legends of Burlesque in 1992 when I photographed the “Marilyn Monroe of Burlesque”Dixie Evans. Over the years I returned to Exotic World, located just off Route 66 in the California desert, to photograph their annual reunions where Dixie was kind enough to introduce me to many of her friends, allowing me to capture this part of Americana. The images in the show are the most recent additions to the project were taken at the Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekend in Las Vegas.
Come check out the work of my fellow Sony Artisans of Imagery: Matthew Jordan Smith, Andy Katz, Cristina Mittermeier, David McLain and Me Ra Koh. Big thanks to Kayla Lindquist, director of the Sony Artisan’s of Imagery, for putting this great show together for the one year anniversary of the program.

‘Avedon Fashion 1944-2000’ at the International Center of Photography features six decades of Avedon’s fashion images, encompassing his magazine work from Harper’s Bazaar to Vogue through the New Yorker as well as the work he did for top fashion designers. Even if you’re familiar with Avedon’s work (and who isn’t?) this show is a must-see and truly inspiring.
The fashionable exhibition is the second installment in the International Center of Photography’s Year of Fashion. It includes 175 prints organized chronologically throughout ICP’s many galleries and includes a rare behind-the-scenes look at the magazine layout process showing many of Avedon’s original prints submitted to Harper’s Bazaar marked up with notes and crop marks.
One of the highlights of the show was seeing three versions of Avedon’s Dovima with Elephants. Be sure not to miss the scratched vintage print horizontal version downstairs..
