Kyle's Show

NYC was a quick, fun trip- we basically went for my brother's senior show opening at the SVA Gallery in Chelsea. 80 seniors showcased their work in the annual Mentors exhibition, where students are paired with a mentor, someone successful in the arts industry. Mentors ranged from photographers, editors, curators, writers, etc.

Kyle was paired with Laurel Nakadate, a photography and video artist- someone with similar interests to him. His piece, Big Brother, was a 2 minute video that continuously played.





All the students provided something unique to the show, so it was a nice blend of photos and video. The people-watching of the art students was almost as fascinating as the art! Here are some others that piqued my interest and some pics of the gallery...




This student's mentor was James Frey.





The opening was packed! Luckily, I took these shots before everyone got there. Congrats Ky! :)
