Contemporary Museum Exhibit

The Contemporary Museum has a photo exhibit running through March 9th. Richard Misrach took his 8 x 10 view camera to a room above Sans Souci beach and, over time, came away with a fantastic collection of images. I consider this a must see for anyone who takes photography the least bit seriously. Techincally these are quite a feat, just to capture the decisive moment with such a instrument is difficult enough. He not only gets it, he delivers it in huge proportions and stunning detail with a message that can change the way you look at a beach forever. This is even more amazing, considering that Richard is not formally trained in photography.

Go and enjoy, Nick
