Jolie Laide at Tepper Takayama Fine Arts

Added on by Miska Draskoczy.

I'm pleased to announce that several images from Gowanus Wild are featured this month in the group show Jolie Laide at Tepper Takayama Fine Arts. 'Jolie Laide' in French translates literally to "pretty ugly' and expresses the concept of a type of beauty found in things which on the surface appear to be ugly or unusual. It's an apt moniker for the work I'm doing with Gowanus Wild and gallery director Martha Takayama has curated an intriguing set of images between photographers Renan Cepeda, Cassio Vasconcellos, and myself which inform and speak to one another.
