“First presented in 2011, carriage trade's Social Photography exhibitions have become both a tradition and an ongoing survey of cell phone camera use. What began as a novelty medium seven or eight years ago now provides currency for the $100 billion picture mill of Instagram, which funnels 95 million images a day through its social media network via opaque algorithms that determine the order and context of what we see.

Unlike social media formats on our phones which encourage endless scrolling through a "bottomless bowl" of images, Social Photography cell phone pictures exist both online and in the gallery. Faced with a group of photographs in the exhibition space, any of which can draw one's attention or focus, accidental associations present themselves through proximity (their order is based on when images are emailed to the gallery) underscoring the alternative of seeing cell phone images in a physical setting free of social media filters.”

Opening: July 10, 2018: Social Photography VI / Carriage Trade, NYC

Social Photography VI is now open!

I have contributed a photograph to Carriage Trade's sixth benefit exhibition which meditates on the ubiquitous use of cell phone photography and its connection to the art community. Come view this immersive exhibition in situ, a precise grid of images installed on two facing walls in the gallery.

"While Instagram tends to emphasize the medium's social utility, carriage trade's Social Photography exhibitions have tracked an alternate course, inviting participants and viewers to encounter these images in a format free of peer-generated tallies, while offering the option of a sustained look afforded by a gallery setting."

All photographs can be viewed and purchased online:
