"Rough Around the Edges" Opening Reception at Milk Gallery

I know this is short notice, but it has been a while since we have been to an Art Gallery Opening Reception, that I thought I would squeeze it in.  Join us tomorrow for the

Rough Around the Edges

Opening Reception

at Milk Gallery

Jonathan Mannion says that he "wants to be remembered as an incredible photographer...one that connects to his subjects and makes classic images." For those who don't recognize the name, you definitely know his work. While he shoots subjects from many fields, Mannion is most known for his iconic Hip Hop photography: the portraits of DMX covered in blood for "Flesh of My Flesh, Blood of My Blood," Ludacris' "Back For the First Time" album cover, Jay Z's "Reasonable Doubt," Ol' Dirty Bastard's "Ni**a Please," and the list goes on and on. "Classic" definitely describes Mannion's work and this upcoming exhibition at Milk Gallery in New York will prove it.

ROUGH AROUND THE EDGES: the 665 Polaroid Work of Jonathan Mannion opens June 18 and features photographs taken in one of Mannion's favorite formats. He likens the freedoms of using the now discontinued 665 Polaroid film and his trusty Polaroid 195 Land camera to shooting digital because it showed exactly what the finished product was going to look like. Printing with the included negatives gave the "rough edge" aesthetic that he was looking for and provided for amazing photos.

In order to attend you must RSVP here:

[masked]
Please do not RSVP on here until you have RSVP'd through milk studios.
We will be meeting at 7:30pm (the reception starts at 7pm, so feel free to get there early if you choose).  We will check out the exhibit, enjoy some complimentary drinks, and have one of those "this is so New York" nights.  I hope you will join us!

For those that are doing the Highline walk and stargazing, this will be one stop for the night.  It is right near the Highline where we were going to stop at Chelsea Market.  For more details, check out the Highline Event description.

    Thanks for coming out ladies. I really enjoyed the exhibit (as well as the music), and of course, the conversation. And it was quite the conversation once we got to The Standard Biergarten (goodness, I'll make sure to never cross you guys the wrong way with the dirt you got on me. ;) ). Till the next time ladies!

      I did not receive one, but most gallery opening receptions are open to the public. If you emailed them, I assume you should be go to go. :)
