The Art of Travel Photography - WFM Studios
January 27, 2019 - New York

Travel photography, at its core, is about capturing a sense of place. This sense of place, the essence of a location, is the thread, the unifying theme, that ties a collection of architectural, portrait, landscape, wildlife, street, food,family, lifestyle and every other type of image together. This is easier said than done. When you travel, you have little at your disposal. You have limited time, gear, modes of travel, contacts, local information and so on. As a travel photographer, your job is to utilize every type of photography, every technique and any and everything made available to you to provide a sense of place. To provide for a collection of images when taken in part or as a whole, takes the viewer on a journey, that allows them to understand and truly what it feels like to be there. Not what it looks like but what it feels like to be there. In this Workshop, we will go over how to capture the soul of a city, its people and its culture. This is what we really want to capture after all... Sure, we may want to capture the postcard perfect pictures too - but a series of images that capture the essence of a place is what makes for an extraordinary travel collection.

Born in Cuba, he was an artist of mixed Chinese, Spanish and African heritage who drew upon the myriad influences of his multi-cultural upbringing to develop a unique and hybrid style of painting that was not only admired and collected by fellow artists and writers such as Pablo Picasso and André Breton, but resonated with the tumultuous political, social and cultural context of the 20th century and an emerging post-colonial world.

'Pop-Porn' is Neo-Pop Erotica for the Masses! - MF Gallery
Through February 17, 2019 - Brooklyn

'Pop-Porn' is Neo-Pop Erotica for the Masses! Five artists celebrate all forms of intimacy; untethered, unabashed, and unbound. Pop-Porn will debut at MF Gallery in Brooklyn on Jan.12th 2019. Curated by Matt Myers, aka Eronin, Pop-Porn spotlights five artists working with modern concepts of eroticism and desire, and how it is essential to us right now. Exhibition curator Matt Myers has worked and shown his art at Sotheby’s NY auction house since 2001. He became keenly aware of a cross-connect between Pop-Art and Eroticism, and the idea of Pop-Porn emerged as a platform to showcase a group of artists sharing this vision. The artists selected to participate in the Pop-Porn exhibition are: Eronin, Fernando Carpaneda, Ellen Stagg, Martina Secondo Russo and Anna Park. Just like Warhol, Wesselmann and Lichtenstein drew from everyday images from mass media and popular culture to create Pop-Art, Pop-Porn also draws from mass media, but from more provocative sources. There is a ever-growing trend in major venues and even auction houses to promote erotica as valid and essential. For two years in a row, Sotheby’s London has celebrated erotica in their highly successful public auctions ... (read more)
