Last week I had a day of industry adventures, attending a couple of events on behalf of Fab Ego Magazine (FEM) and the ever-spanning network between the professional artists in NYC. This event at Milk Studios was my favourite of the day. Yulia, the editor and founder of FEM, invited myself as a +2 with her friend and makeup artist from Milk. I failed to mention in the previous article that Yulia too is in limbo, moving between apartments, so like me, Yulia was experiencing her own “living out of a suitcase” situation. Unlike myself, Yulia chose the only other option when it comes to pulling out a nice outfit for an event in such circumstances — buy something new. Her jumpsuit choice proved a hit with the schmoozers at the Milk Studios party.
The party was hosted to launch a new photography exhibition “The Magnum Contact Sheet Exhibition“. As we waltzed in the door like we owned the place we made a beeline for the open bar. Gin. Tonic. Sorted.
The exhibition consisted of dozens of iconic images you have seen before in many publications, mounted next to their framed contact sheets. The contact sheets contain “thumbnails” of the Magnum photographer’s roll of film, showing the surrounding images and moments giving even more context and understanding to these iconic photographs. Below I have a few examples of what you’ll find at the exhibition, which is now open to the public.
If you’re in the city at the moment you should definitely check it out. Well worth the browse – and the studios are just across the street from Chelsea Market if you want to do a little shopping and grab lunch too.
