This exhibition of young contemporary photographers will include work by 16 young artists based in New York - John Arsenault, Kenneth Cappello, Don Cervantes, Michelle Cortez, Roberto De Luna, Tara DiGiovanni, Clint Downing, Hanna Liden, Eden C. Marland, Ryan McGinley, Johnny Pack, George Perkins, Kristopher Pito, Tammy Schoenfeld, Leticia Velasquez and Chloe Zachmanoglou.
Following in the traditions established by the preceding generation of photographers, like Larry Clark, Nan Goldin, Philip-Lorca diCorcia, Jack Pierson, David Armstrong, Mark Morrisroe, and Wolfgang Tillmans, these young artists depict themselves, their families and their friends with an unsentimental inquisitiveness. Creating a visual diary of their times, they chronicle life in New York City today.
These young artists are drawn primarily from two of the premier art schools in the United States; most of them attended either The School of Visual Arts, or The Parsons School of Design/The New School University. This new generation of photographers brings a level of self-awareness and stylization to their work that isn't present in the pictures by their forebears. Raised to expect that their lives and their scene are worthy of examination, these artists are the post-modern torchbearers of the documentary photographic practice.
This exhibition is organied and curated by Peter Hay Halpert in cooperation with Tony De Marco and Mamma Roma Ltd. Halpert is a private art dealer and Principal of Peter Hay Halpert Fine Art in New York. In addition, he is a respected and widely-published independent writer and curator, specializing in contemporary art and photography.
