The First International Photography Festival in the United States
Photography, one of the most important visual media of our lives, has been surprisingly uncelebrated, particularly in the United States. New York City, home to the most influential commercial and fine art photography community, has lacked—until now—a large-scale event dedicated to photography. The inaugural New York Photo Festival (May 14–May 18, 2008) delivered a dynamic, high-quality event in what is arguably the photographic capital of the world.

Exposition Exposition : Florigelia Florilegia is a group exhibition featuring photographic works by Goldschmied & Chiari, Fabio Zonta, Jonny Briggs, Laura Letinsky and Sinaida Michalskaja.

Laura Letinsky photographs an age-old subject: the domestic still life. Fraught with a poignant self-expression, these delicate compositions document or often fabricate, the tabletop traces of human existence. Letinsky's formally calculated constructions, intended for visual and psychological contemplation, are reminiscent of 17th century Dutch and Flemish painting, in which the viewer's attention is drawn to the subtle details which command the still life scenes.
"To Want For Nothing" is a series commissioned by Brancolini Grimaldi this spring. The artist was granted unpreced...
