The 2010 NYPH photography festival takes over Dumbo once again from tomorrow night until the end of the weekend. Billed as 'The Future of Contemporary Photography' it's an ecclectic blend of shows and themes, with the Lou Reed curated exhibition 'Hidden Bodies, Hidden Stories' looking to be my pick off the page. It has some great names past and present including Ed van der Elsken, Daido Moriyama and Miguel Rio Branco among others.
Apart from that the program seems conspicuously absent of industry heavy hitters, perhaps it is about the future of contemporary photography after all.
Either way we're all just hoping there's enough free booze to go round and the sun shines so we can sit in the park under the bridge and talk about photography projects that probably will never happen.
See you there...
