I will be showing my photograph Saturday Morning in an exhibition entitled "Home" at Umbrella Arts Gallery on New York's Lower East Side from May 3-26. The Opening Reception will be on Wednesday May 9 from 6-8 pm. The show was curated by photographer Harvey Stein, and is part of an ongoing series of exhibits investigating themes that explore the basic yet complex and necessary needs and desires of the human condition. These themes throw the spotlight on our daily experiences that are omnipresent, totally necessary, but are mostly overlooked or when acknowledged are usually taken for granted. Nothing is more basic, necessary and involuntary than sleep, food, and shelter. Through this ongoing exploration, surprising and creative images have made our needs more conscious and allow the artist and viewer to be more connected to the richness of every day life, experience and surroundings. A book based on the exhibited images for "Home" will be published by the gallery and will be for sale during the exhibition.
