On the NJ Turnpike and loving it (!) - picking up Michael Massaia's work for the show.
Never thought I'd say this about being on the New Jersey Turnpike: we spent hours on it today on the drive to Michael Massaia's studio in Northern NJ, and l-o-v-e-d the ride.
Loved it, as (1) we were excited to be picking up his amazing photographic work, 'Seeing the Black Dog', taken - on the NJ Turnpike. And (2) because thinking about his haunting images, taken at rest stops in the middle of the night, shift the ways in which one sees the usually monotonous chore of getting between two places, transforming it into a traveling adventure.
Here's one of our pics from the ride, taken on an iPhone... fun, but nothing like Massaia's luscious prints, shot on film, and hand printed. Come to the exhibition opening May 31 - his work must be seen in person.
