EXHIBITIONS: Art + Commerce Emerging Photographers Festival

Published on .

From the Art + Commerce Fest
The second annual Art + Commerce Festival of Emerging Photographers, running Oct. 15-25 at the Tobacco Warehouse in Brooklyn's Dumbo, is the brainchild of Brooklyn Heights resident Jimmy Moffat, a founder/partner at photo agency Art + Commerce. The new-talent showcase features 150 photographs by 24 artists who are not represented by agencies or galleries, selected from a pool of over 1,000 entries. The exhibition is free and open to the public 10 a.m.-6 p.m. daily, with extended hours, 10 a.m.- 10 p.m., on Oct. 15 and 16. "In making the selection, we were looking for photographers who are in control of their medium, who have an intellectual understanding of what they're doing and who have something to say in their work," notes Charlotte Cotton, who heads the cultural program at Art + Commerce. Seen here are some samples from the show, led by Ben Ruggiero's "Untitled" (2004). In the PDF also is 2) Matthew Porter, "Burnout" (2004); 3) Keren Moscovitch, "Cryptic Matter" (2004-5); 4) William Lamson, "Irving Pointing to God" (2003); and 5) Thomas Holton, from the series "The Lams of Ludlow Street" (2004).
