This Wednesday is the opening of the Young Curators, New Ideas exhibition at the Bond Street Gallery in Brooklyn. This is the first effort by the gallery's talented new director and all around happening chap, Amani Olu. The show features work from a ton of great photographers all curated by Alana Celii & Grant Willing, Michael Bühler-Rose, Jon Feinstein, Laurel Ptak, Lumi Tan and moi.
For my portion of the show I decided to focus on photographers that employ directorial image making strategies to explore identity and representation of the self. I asked Alison Brady, Olga Cafiero, Alix Smith, Alex Prager and Ofer Wolberger to include some of their amazing work and all were kind enough to oblige.
Here are the details:
