FLAK PHOTO Teams up with VERSUS!

Back in the Big Apple from La La Land this morning after Red Eye flight. Lots to tell about PhotoLA but, first there are some events that, I need to caught up with besides my regular sleep (feeling fried).

I had the pleasure of meeting Andy Adams during PhotoLA and he had this wonderful idea of showing selected works from the VERSUS show. Thank you so much Andy for featuring the works of VERSUS in Flak Photo.

Flak Photo partners with curator Ruben Natal-San Miguel to feature 10 photographs from VERSUS, weekdays through FRI, JAN 29.

Versus | A Group Exhibition at Hous Projects

Flak Photo kicks off its 2010 program by partnering with blogger/curator Ruben San-Natal Miguel to feature a selection of photographs from his current exhibition, VERSUS, on view at Hous Projects in New York City. From the curator's statement:

At the start of not only a new year, but also a new decade, it is imperative to reflect upon the themes of our times and celebrate humanity’s accomplishments and spirit...The exhibition is a cornucopia, yet the underlining tone is one that allows each of these strong voices to sing and praise the body as a whole whose refrain is socially relevant, neither mundane nor negative or shallow and is extremely timely. It is ever amazing how much courage it takes to live an ordinary life, but this exhibition hopes to cull and inspire in each viewer the motivation to embrace and own the good, usher it into their day to day and make the next year as well as decade one of positivity and strength.

In support of the exhibition, Flak Photo highlights work from ten photographers in the group show, weekdays through January 29, 2010 and includes images from Jen Davis, Molly Landreth, Eric Ogden, Gina LeVay, Kris Graves, Matthew Pillsbury, Mickalene Thomas, Nadine Rovner, Phil Toledano and Zoe Strauss.
