Infrared: The Invisible Made Visible Exhibit Photo Place Gallery

I am very excited to be part of Infrared: The Invisible Made Visible exhibition at Photoplace Gallery in Middlebury, VT.

The exhibition will take place from November 8 – December 2.

“Photographing in the non-visible spectrum is both magically haunting and unpredictable. It requires great technical understanding of both capture and post-production. And it takes a great deal of understanding and practice of the craft as well as how the photographer’s specific equipment will capture and interpret reality. Successful IR imagery demands a substantial expertise to master its technical and the aesthetic aspects…” – Laurie Klein, Juror

The Mermaid Parade

“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.mermaidparade_2016C-515 mermaidparade_2016C-547 mermaidparade_2016C-563mermaidparade_2016C-478 mermaidparade_2016C-482 mermaidparade_2016C-502 mermaidparade_2016C-531 mermaidparade_2016C-536

 

 

 

 

 

The Coney Island Mermaid Parade 2013

“Every child is an artist, the problem is staying an artist when you grow up” – Pablo Picasso

I guess that’s why I love the Mermaid Parade…growing up has not gotten in the way of wonder here…

Not even Hurricane Sandy could stop Mermaid Parade ! After a fundraising effort, thousands of people came out to take part in the first post-superstorm Mermaid Parade along Surf Ave. in Coney Island. It’s part-fantasy, part-escapism, but all real. The festival is a wild celebration of the imagination, combining all the eccentricities  and all the joys of artistic self-expression

The Mermaid Parade in Coney Island

The Mermaid 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 as Mermaids, Neptunes and various sea creatures,  everyone promenades, sashays and struts  riotously  down Surf  Avenue . It’s part-fantasy, part-escapism, but all real. The festival is  a celebration of the imagination, combining all the oddities and all the joys of artistic self-expression.

I have shot this festival on and off for 20 years and it is always fabulous !
