My Visit To The Soho Arthouse In NYC
Yesterday night, I visited the Soho Arthouse in Manhattan. Every year, Mindy Veissid, Sepia Prince, and Lourdes Merson of Art Of Intuitive Photography organizes an art gallery show for her students. All photographers who submit photographs go through a jury panel. Two out of five of my photographs were judged and selected to be part of last night’s event. It was a wonderful event. It was my first gallery I’ve ever been a part of. I was shocked of how big the turn out was! Everyone was incredibly nice and supportive. I am so happy that I decided to participate. I got to meet Sepia Prince, we’ve talked for quite a bit. Sepia is such a wonderful person, we clicked immediately. I can’t tell you what a wonderful feeling it is to meet someone who not only loves photography on the same level as you do, but also talk the same lingo and be able to relate to each other philosophically about photography. Unfortunately I did not get a chance to meet his wife, but I’m sure we will meet again in the near future. I also met a woman that was so such a pleasure to meet, you couldn’t help but to smile when she talked to you; just because her energy was that positive. She told me about a women she knows that does incredible things with flowers. I’m definitely getting in contact with her, I’d really love to see what she’s done! I did manage to get some pictures, but unfortunately not a lot. Unfortunately, I did not bring my DSLR so I just used my cellphone (yeah, I know, but it’s better than having no pics to show you). Because of the crowed, I couldn’t take pictures the way I wanted to. But I think I’ve got enough pictures to give you a sense of what it was like there. As I learn and improve more on my photography artistically, I plan to do more of these galleries. They are really fun, and you meet a lot of positive, and friendly people.
