I am thrilled to be part of PHOTOcentric 2014, now on display at the Riverside Galleries in Garrison, NY, along the gorgeous Hudson River. Thank you Marvin Heiferman, for recognizing my photograph, NYT Magazine with Diane Arbus, and Painted Apples, in the open category. This thoughtful and eclectic exhibition reflects Marvin’s deep knowledge and experience as an independent curator, writer, and educator in photography and the visual arts. 

Marvin Heiferman PHOTOcentric 2014 Juror
"To jury a photographic exhibition is both a risky proposition and an interesting opportunity. Instead of conceiving a presentation that sheds light on a particular artist, theme or idea, you have to embrace serendipity. Well over a thousand photographic images were submitted for possible inclusion in this project. My job was to see each of them for what they were, to imagine why and how they came to look that way, and then just pick fifty of them.
An estimated 2.4 billion photographs will be made every day this year. The ones I viewed and re-viewed were but a small sampling of an even smaller subset, the kinds of images that are submitted to art galleries and institutions for possible display. What I pondered as I looked at and chose among them is what the makers of these images were thinking about, happened upon, imagined, and decided to do. My suggestion to you is to do the same. Think about how photography’s history and traditions might have shaped the vision of those whose work is represented here. Think about what they decide to pay homage to, work with, or challenge.
Today - with so many people taking so many photographs for so many reasons - an exhibition like this is not the place to zoom in on any single idea about photography, but to engage with and delight in many of them.”
