Fashion Buzz Now recommends a walk through to The Peter Blum Gallery to see the French Photographer / Filmmaker Chris Marker who took over two hundred photos of straphangers traveling on the Paris Metro. Walking into the gallery you immediately fall prey to images captured by Marker. Each one becoming more intriguing causing you to feel many emotions while scoping out the personality of each one his subjects. One particular picture that stood out in my mind was of an extremely retouched photo of a women standing in a subway car causing me to wonder “what was hiding behind it?”
The layout of this exhibit was open and inviting and easy to navigate your way through a series of emotional photographs.
Right next door at the Sean Kelly Gallery, Robert Mapplethorpe is not one too miss either.
This photographer has been labeled a prolific, controversial contemporary American artists.
And this is visible upon entering the gallery. A must see. www.fashionbuzznow.blogspot.com
