Our former New Yorker, dear friend, curator and great photographer , Amy Elkins is creating new waves on the West Coast of Portland, Oregon. Being a person of many hats this time, Amy puts on the curator hat back on to create a great group show called'' Gazed Upon''. If you are in the area go and see this group show with the likes of one of my most favorites, Cara Phillips , Stacey Tyrell and Jen Davis . The show book essay was written by the new Aperture prize 2012 winner, Sarah Palmer.
For those like us truly that can make it , they show will be available @ the newly curators site Photo- Gallerino where Amy Elkins own work has been already featured.
Go and see it!!
