On the 27th, I took the new Canon – which I won through a raffle sponsored by Adorama Camera, a great camera store and rental house in the city, and Canon, on our journey through the city.
We went to MOMA to see the American Modern: Hopper to O’Keeffe and New Photography 2013 exhibits. I was a little disappointed in the American Modern. MOMA has such a large number of works that I would have preferred to see some lesser known Hooper and O’Keeffe (to name two). AS always, though, any Hooper is better than no Hooper and once again I was reminded how much his use of light has affected my work. The New Photography 2013 was fascinating. Loved some: Steven Shore; Annette Kelm; Allan Sekula; Brigit Jurgenssen; others not so much.
Then we walked through Central Park on our way to see Inside Llewyn Davis – forget what the critics say about it , go see Her, or American Hustle, or 12 Years a Slave, or Hunger Games. Don’t waste your money on Davis.
The experience was very different between the park and the museum.
