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 Büsing 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
