Grown in Brooklyn Arts for Transit Exhibition

Ready for viewing! The MTA Arts for Transit Exhibition was just installed a couple of days ago in the Atlantic Avenue subway complex featuring nine of my photographs printed as Duratrans by an amazing printer right here in Brooklyn, Digital Plus, on film generously donated by Kodak and housed in 45 x 66 inch lightboxes. It can be found near the Q and B lines and will be on view for one year.

The Exhibit is called Grown in Brooklyn and highlights Brooklyn's local farms and purveyors of fresh produce that I have met over the last couple of years. It feels so good to support local agriculture and to see my work printed so large and brilliantly. For a full press release and addition photos and info about the Arts for Transit exhibition click here.

I would like to thank Jeffrey Heehs from Kodak for donated the film, George Uenishi from Digital Plus for printing the images so beautifully and most of all Lester Burg the curator for the MTA Arts for Transit, for recognizing my work and supporting Brooklyn's agriculture and good food.
