It’s been up for almost a month… and I haven’t seen many posts about it on the internet, but “Who Shot Rock and Roll” now being exhibited at the Brooklyn Museum of Art looks awesome and I know I’m going to go see it. The Museum claims that it’s goal with this exhibit is to “acknowledge the photographer’s creative and collaborative role in history of rock music.” Sounds pretty sweet to me. Check out some photos being shown at the exhibit:

The Museum of the City of New York will be holding it’s opening reception for it’s new exhibition and book “Only In New York: Photographs from LOOK Magazine.” It’s an affordable way to spend your evening, and the opening receptions at the Museum usually have complimentary drinks and snacks. The exhibit looks amazing… and includes many photos from the magazine that “focus on the fascination and allure of New York.” 

Flier for the opening of "Only in New York: Photographs from LOOK Magazine" on Tuesday at the Museum of the City of New York.

This exhibit was up for a while. (I actually went to the opening reception over a month ago), but when I went searching today to show my co-workers images from the exhibit (to make them go) I saw that not much has been written about it… and it’s really amazing! 

The Edge of New York: Waterfront Photographs” is done in the same style of the more recent exhibit Context/ Contrast” where historic photographs compared with current day photographs of the same area or subject highlight the drastic changes that have occurred there. The New York City shoreline has relied on its rivers for trade and shipment throughout its history… but now that we rely more strongly on methods of air this has grown to be somewhat obselete, making the changes in the use of the waterfront change to other things like tourism, firework spectacles and in some cases, abandonment.

The most frequent photographs are done by Diane Cook” and “Len Jenshel who’s largely formatted and colorful images capture the industrial, somewhat mystical view of the New York City waterfront in many boroughs. There aren’t many images online, but you can check out these couple of photos, and be sure to check out the exhibit at “The Museum of the City of New York” before it closes on November 29th!
