Something to see
I will do my best to post about interesting photography exhibitions around the world. I admit that the sole criteria for these choices will be that they will be shows that I would go and see if I could travel anywhere in the world. This way I will not limit the options to my own geographic location. To kick this off I am suggesting that everyone that lives in the Philly area jump at the chance to go to the Carnegie Museum of Art to see the various Duane Michals exhibitions - "Storyteller: The Photographs of Duane Michals" and "Duane Michals: Collector" . I have long been a fan of his work. I enjoy his use of a sequence of photographs as filmic storytelling. I only wish I had a tiny hint of his ability to successfully marry image and text. I have a wish list of photographs I want to add to my personal collection and a particular piece by him has always been at the top. If I were able to go there I would also check out the exhibition "Teenie Harris Photographs: Civil Rights Perspectives"
