Great opening!

Over 1,000.00 people attended  tonight this show opening!

A big hit for Aperture Foundation right in the middle of the NY Photo Festival . A bold move but, with great results.I myself was getting tired of heading to Brooklyn for the past days so, this opening party was a breath of fresh air. The crowd was mostly art curators,dealers, collectors, publishers, established artists and photographers.A crowd just as good, if not better than the NY Photo Festival parties.Everybody was seriously interested in the exhibit in which most of the pieces were pretty interesting visually and different in technique and content.

See more info below and go and see it!

Also there is a limited edition portfolio and a book worth investing on!
