Steve McCurry at The Rubin Museum

The photographer Steve McCurry has a show at the Rubin Museum in New York: Steve McCurry, India which I saw when I was in New York last Friday.

If you are anywhere near New York once the snow has cleared and you are remotely interested in photography, India, or a beautifully presented show, see this show. Seeing McCurry’s work printed this large and beautifully presented is breathtaking and his are some of the most iconic and magnificent images of life in India I’ve ever seen.

If you don’t know McCurry’s work, you might be familiar with his most iconic image for National Geographic: Afghan Girl.

I hadn’t been to the Rubin Museum before and I must say, it’s a beautiful place, easy to walk through and the presentation of artwork is excellent.

Note: They’re closed Tuesdays.

This show runs from November 18, 2015 – April 4, 2016 so you have time to wait until the snow melts.

I plan to be in New York again this Wednesday and I’ll be going back to this show, it’s that good.

Ray K. Metzker and the Institute of Design

The Getty Center is having a show: The Photographs of Ray K. Metzker and the Institute of Design which I just saw and highly recommend.

One of my favorite photographers and artists, Frederick Sommer was represented in the show. Not this image, which was from a show at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York but similar work done at the Institute of Design in Chicago where many of the folks in this show worked.
