I photographed this building on a recent trip to NYC.  I had a great time at Photo Plus Expo, even though I had trouble walking around.  The show was smaller this year, but always worth the trip.

Breakfast

February 5, 2009

In my last post, I mentioned going to Katz’s Deli.  Whenever I go out to breakfast with my photographer friends and I order pancakes, I always threaten to photograph them.  This time I brought my Polaroid in and actually did it.

A little background:  Last year, when I was taking History of Photography at RISD, we had to do a presentation on a famous photographer.  Our group presentation was on Stephen Shore.  For his American Surfaces and Uncommon Places projects, Shore traveled, “exploring the changing culture of America and exploring how a photograph renders the segment of time and space in its scope.”  In the process, he photographed TV sets, furniture, and of course, a pancake breakfast.

Photo Plus 2008

October 26, 2008

Photo Plus Expo was well worth the six hours on the train to get there and back.  When I got to the Javits Center around 11:00, I didn’t know where to start.  I saw Vincent La Foret presenting his film “Reverie,” shot with the new Canon 5D Mark II.  I then went straight to the Canon display and actually held one in my hand for a moment.  The show seemed bigger than last years and I didn’t get to see everything I wanted.  I did make it to the Epson booth and get a signed print from Timothy Greenfield-Sanders.  Hopefully I can budget enough to stay longer next year.
