I was honored to have one of my images from the Middle East chosen to be part of a wonderful gallery show, called THE BIG PICTURE, put together by friend and photojouralist Carl Juste. The images are being displayed at about 10 feet wide by 8 feet high. The opening night was a huge succsess and gave me a chance to catch up with a lot of old photojournalist friends.
If you are in the Miami area I highly recomend checking out the exhibit and seeing these incrediable images brought to life in a giagantic way. The images will be up through October.
The exhibition displays sixteen colossal images by sixteen extraordinary photojournalists. The work is featured in high- resolution quality and size that will make viewers feel like they are part of the scene, allowing them to experience the event first hand. Each image is a physical manifestation of the expansion of meaning. The truth and relativity of the facts are the ingredients that expand the comprehension of the image. The viewer sees the larger context because they are drawn into the expanding frame, hence made to see the Big Picture.
Big Picture will opened August 17, 2012, 7pm at The Little Haiti Cultural Center in Miami, Florida. It will be open until October. The gallery is approximately 2,100 square feet with high vaulted ceilings—a perfect venue with ample space for an exhibition of this magnitude.
My image, along with the others are available for purchase in sizes of 30×40, 40×60, and 20×30 through Lena Sendik, Iris PhotoCollective, Director of Sales and Marketing, Phone: 504-756-1492, email@example.com
