On Saturday, July 29, 2017, The Watermill Center invites you to enter another world, one conceived by Founder and Artistic Director Robert Wilson and International Summer Program participants of all disciplines and backgrounds. Described as an enchanted forest and performance art extravaganza, the Annual Watermill Center Summer Benefit unites the worlds of art, performance, music, theatre, design, architecture and fashion. All funds raised support The Center’s year-round Artist Residency and Education Programs that provide a unique environment for young and emerging artists to explore and develop new work.
Happy to have 2 of my images of Kushti Wrestlers in the auction this summer !
Claiming the title of “visual anthropologist,” photographer Terri Gold is celebrated for her infrared portraiture of indigenous cultures and ritual. Influenced by early explorers-turned-photographers, Gold takes her cameras through deserts and remote villages, capturing the diversity that the world has to offer. Her prints of the Kushti Wrestlers from Rajasthan tell the story of this ancient form of wrestling practiced in India for more than 2,000 years. Gold’s work has garnered many awards, is shown in galleries internationally and published extensively.

“I must be a mermaid. I have no fear of depths and a great fear of shallow living.” – Anais Nin
A sea of Mermaids, Mermen and Sea Creatures filled Coney Island Saturday for the 34th annual Mermaid Parade.
The Parade celebrates the sand, the sea, the salt air and the beginning of summer, as well as the history and myths of Coney Island. In hand-made costumes, everyone promenades, sashays and struts riotously down Surf Avenue. It’s an all inclusive affair with participants from infants to octogenarians. It’s part-fantasy, part-escapism, but all real – celebrating the imagination and combining all the eccentricities and joys of artistic self-expression !
The Parade is the largest art parade in the nation and I love it and never miss it if I am in NYC.
