World Photography Organization in New York – Opening

We were lucky to be invited last night to the opening reception for WPO in New York at the Chelsea Art Museum.

Starting yesterday, a series of events, workshop and photo classes will be held at the museum and for a month until November 12.

The space is amazing and very well arranged to receive very different types of photography styles, in various formats and differing subjects. The juxtaposition and the arrangements are interesting to analyze.

From fine arts to war photography by Instagram, the exhibit gives a taste of everything you could look for in a photographer (maybe with the exception of wedding photography). The exhibit is also the opportunity to display the winners of the Sony World Photography Awards in each of the 10 categories.

While there were a lot of talented photographers, we noticed in particular:

Javier Arcenillas – http://www.javierarcenillas.com for his works on the sicarios
Alnis Stakle – http://www.alnisstakle.com for his Paris series
Denis Rouvre – http://www.rouvre.com and his “sortie de reunion” portraits
Amit Madheshiya – http://amitmadheshiya.photoshelter.com as he traveled with the cinema tent
Lawrence Smith – http://www.lawrencesmith.com for white on white pictures of flowers
Richard Bailey – http://www.richardbaileyphotography.co.uk and his portraits of Down syndrome Sarah after Vermeer

While spacious, the ground floor was crowded and wined.

After this opening we went to check the other openings on the street. Of note, Barbara Takenaga at the DC Moore Gallery.

If you get the chance, go check the Chelsea Art Museum before November 12.
