Simon Roberts at Klompching

Ever since I first noticed Simon Roberts' Motherland project I've been waiting for it to show here in New York. Tonight it opened at the newly minted Klompching Gallery and the exhibition does not disappoint. I definitely recommend heading over to DUMBO to check it out.

Klompching is the creation of the husband and wife team of Darren Ching and Debra Klomp Ching both of whom are well known in the photo world, he for his work as creative director at PDN and she for her smart writing about photography. This was their inaugural opening and they are putting together a sharp roster of emerging photographers including Lisa M. Robinson and Tessa Bunney (check out the Romania portfolio). It's a promising start. I know I'll stay tuned...

I bought the book on your advice and was pleased. Now I might have to run down to New York for the show. These photos have a special power for Russian expatriates.

First Alec Soth retires from blogging and now you, this is just sad, what am i supposed to do at work.

I haven't retired from blogging, I've been without internet access for a month (Our new place apparently exists in a telecommunication-free black hole). This should all change Wednesday (if the cable gods are to be believed) and then I'll be back to posting the usual drivel.
