NYMPHOTO's third exhibition opens tonight at Sasha Wolf Gallery in Tribeca and celebrates the release of a new book, NYMPHOTO Conversations: Volume 1, including images by and interviews with women photographers.

NYMPHOTO's inaugural exhibition in the fall of 2002 was my first experience showing work in New York City. I previously wrote about that fateful night on my blog, and if tonight is half as fun as that night in December, it's going to be a great time.

I am excited to be showing work with Juliana Beasley, among many talented photographers. I first read about Juliana's work through her NYMPHOTO Conversation and then met her in person at the opening for my show at Daniel Cooney in February. I have since fallen head-over-heels down the rabbit hole into the lovely land of neurosis, and what a fascinating place that really is.

The other photographers showing tonight include Michele Abeles, Rona Chang, Nina B├╝sing Corvallo, Candace Gottschalk, Jessica M. Kaufman, Klea McKenna, Michal Chelbin, Talia Greene, Maria Passarotti, Susana Raab, Emily Shur, Jane Tam, Garie Waltzer, and Jennifer Williams.

A slide show of images from NYMPHOTO participants was also recently featured on NPR's blog: NYMPHOTO on NPR
