And so it begins….

The big week in photography in New York, kicked off tonight at Splashlight Studios.

The Best Of Show Prints from the IPA/LUCIE exhibit was the main event. This 5th year is proving to be a major one. The sellout at Lincoln Center for the event sounds to us like a major accolade.
And there was a major bonus on hand; not only were mainly of the honorees in attendance ( Elliott Erwitt, Ralph Gibson, Howard Zeiff) but some of their classic images were displayed on the perimeter walls. [photopress:levys.jpg,full,centered]
And something I hadn’t seen for awhile was Mr. Zeiff’s “You Don’t Have to be Jewish To Love Levy’s” print ad. A classic in advertising.

Honestly hadn’t seen some of these classic photographs this big…ever.
Beautiful examples lent by the artists themselves. Truly a spectacular show.

And the guests were invited to have their photographs taken with the latest Hasselblad and Photoflex equipment. Wait :30 min., and many of us were able to walk away with 4×6 prints. (Man, do I need a haircut!)

Tomorrow is the honorees lunch. We’ll be there to get some of these masters on video, and let you hear for yourself, words from the artists who are behind some of the best photographs of the last century.
