“When I started the process of putting together this photography show, I thought it was going to be about New York and its many incarnations. However, as I started to edit, I realized that what I was putting together was a portrait of New York past–the city as it was when I was growing up in the 80’s and early 90’s. Not all of the works date from those years, but they all encompass the feeling of being young in the city as it was before the big boom, back when Manhattan could still feel dangerous.”
Quote above from BAMart curator from ‘Younger than I’ll be’ exhibition, Skye Parrot. Opening last night the photography exhibition, showcasing photographers such as Peter Sutherland, Cass Bird and David Armstrong will run through to May 23rd 2010 at Natman Room, BAM Peter Jay Sharp Building.
