One of my favorite Greenpointers, Emily Raw, is having a showcase of her portrait series this Tuesday at Kill Devil Hill. I shall be there with bells on to support my girlie and her fabulous work. You should, too. Facebook event here.
Cultural locavore & photographer Emily Raw shoots artists in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
Her ongoing portrait series “Franklin St Regulars” celebrates key contributors to Greenpoint’s current Franklin St renaissance.
The photographs, on display at Kill Devil Hill’s backroom salon from 26 October – 17 November 2010, depict sets and costumes hand-built from paper for a flattening effect that’s the inverse of trompe l’oeil.
The promotional images are teasers & will not appear in the actual show. The final product can be seen only at Kill Devil Hill. A portion of each paper set will be available at the opening for attendee photo ops.
