“New York City speaks visually to every photographer in its own special way,” PWP says of this exhibit. “The images in this show celebrate NYC in ways stunning, memorable and personal, avoiding the usual cliches.
“Each image is printed on luminous metal plates, resulting in bold, graphic images of NYC as the photographers (and you) you see it.
“Be it architecture, people, neighborhoods or even tourist attractions come to see the city through the eyes of photographers who know the city well.”
My NYC opens on Thursday, August 4th, with a free opening reception from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. The members hope to meet you there.
