I'm excited to report that one of my I LOVE A PARADE! photographs was selected by Chris Boot of Aperture, to hang in a special public project of artist flags in Rockefeller Center. The photograph is from my Parade Series and this one in particular was exhibited in Historic Newport in an outdoor solo exhibition I organized Autumn 2020. I am delighted to see the work exist in another form and blowing in the New York City breeze. Thank you to my son for the wonderful photographs documenting the installation and Chris for the selection.
One of New York City’s oldest and greatest traditions, the St. Patrick’s Day Parade began over 300 years ago in 1762, 14 years before the signing of the Declaration of Independence. There is a saying that on St. Patrick’s Day everyone is Irish. The truth of this adage is seen in this image of diverse, smiling, cheering, energetic New Yorkers in all their imaginative green attire. A forthcoming book, loosely titled “My New York” will showcase a series of New York centric photographs I’ve taken over the years.
