My long-term project China Everbright
has been selected to be shown at Slideluck Potshow XVI
at the New York Photo Festival
this Saturday night, May 14, 2011, at St. Ann's Warehouse at 38 Water Street in Brooklyn, New York
. The event runs from 5:30-10:30pm. There should be a huge crowd there--last year the event won the Guiness World Record for largest potluck dinner in history--and the selection of slideshows is a breathtaking, inspiring bunch. Whitney Johnson, the recently-named Director of Photography at The New Yorker, curated the show.
I've reproduced the full list of participating photographers, which could double as a start to a list of my photographic idols, here: Alex Fradkin, Alex Webb, Benjamin Sklar, Bruce Gilden, Carolyn Drake, Chris Hondros, Dominic Bracco, Dominic Nahr, Elena Dorfman, James Pomerantz, JR, Krisanne Johnson, Iwan Baan, Landon Nordeman, Luca Zanier, Luis Ladron de Guevara, Lyle Owerko, M. Scott Brauer, M. Wesley Ham, Mari Bastashevski, Mark Peterson, Martin Usborne, Matt Eich, Melanie Burford, Michael Christopher Brown, Natasja Fourie, Peter DiCampo, Phillip Toledano, Platon, Rinko Kawauchi, Stefano de Luigi, Steve Pyke, Steven Brahms, and Tim Hetherington.
I'm honored and humbled to have my work shown among such talented photographers.
