New Visions Exhibit Opens December 9th

December 6, 2010 Leave a comment

I am very glad to announce that my work has been included in New Visions, an exhibit of new work by members of Professional Women Photographers, here in New York.  The opening is 6-8 pm on Thursday, December 9th and the show will be up until January 15th in the lobby of the Durst building at 1133 Avenue of the Americas.

Brings back memories from another lifetime,  when I was a Program Director at RCA VideoDiscs and had an office on the second floor of that building.  We had moved there from 10 Rockefeller Center, where I had a beautiful view of the plaza and the Christmas tree.  Magical.  Then, as  an economy measure, the entire videodisc division moved to 1133 Avenue of the Americas, a perfectly fine building and even easier commute for me, but where my view was of a Duane Reade drug store.  Alas.  No magic.

Back to the exhibit.  As usual, I am a little mystified by the choice by the curator of the exhibit.  The photograph that was chosen is this:

I do like this image very much.  It is one I shot with my husband’s little Lumix when we traveled on a sailing ship last winter.  The amazing thing to me was that such a small camera could produce such a nice large, sharp image (17″ x 22″) with almost no help from Photoshop.  I blogged about the camera last March in my entry called Large Print from a Small Camera.  I had rather hoped that the image I blogged about there would be chosen:

But at least you get to see it again here….Do stop by the show as there is bound to be a great deal of good work shown.
