First I want to say THANK YOU to everyone who has come to the site in the last few weeks. Its been a lot of fun posting the articles and I hope you are enjoying them. There are a bunch of great things planned for the upcoming weeks and here’s a little preview.
There are some cool events on the horizon New York City. If you are around definitely check them out and if not, I will be covering them here. So feel free to vicariously enjoy them all.
Steve McCurry [ Phaidon | Store in Soho ]
The venerable Steve McCurry, who has racked up accolades from the Robert Capa award to (5) World Press Photo Awards, will be having a book signing at Phaidon | Store Wednesday December 15th. Steve has made more recognizable images than probably any photographer I know. Its incredible. I have not met Steve before, so I have no idea what we are in for, but it should be worth checking out.

Giving Trees [ 25CPW ]
The artist run gallery 25 CPW, in conjunction with Magnum Photo, is hosting a show titled “Giving Trees” at their space off of Central Park. For anyone who is visiting the city, the gallery is just a few blocks north of 59th Street and the AOL Time Warner Center. The show is an amazing survey of Emerging Photographers and Magnum Stalwarts. I will be writing my thoughts on the show, covering the images we know, and some of the fresh faces on the scene.

How many of you have never made a gallery print of your favorite images? Thousands of photographers sit on archives of great work, sometimes never producing a finished photo. Its time to print and mount your best picture of 2010. To coach everyone through the process Jack Klebanow, of L2 Fine Art Mounting & Framing, here in NYC, will be taking me through their gallery and shop. He works for some of the top museums, photographers, and artists and will share his advice on how to turn your prints into gallery worthy pieces.
Later In The Month…
