My Manhattan, as the name suggest, is all about Manhattan and how differently we see this vibrant and magnificent city.
Through my work as a photo archivist and gallery owner, I have met many amazing, wonderful photographers, most in NYC, at all stages of their careers.  I asked these artists to share their artistic impressions of this pulsating city.

Familiar buildings, familiar neighborhoods, and iconic portraits are on view. There are also scenes of everyday street life from the rich and glamorous
to the not-so glamorous.  My Manhattan is New York City crystal clear and abstract and blurry, in both color and black and white. This is Manhattan in all its glory.  If you love Manhattanthis show brings out nostalgia. Images range from the early 1950’s to today, vintage to modern prints.

Photographic Abstraction/Solo Show

Fabio Scalia galleria    

311 West Broadway, NYC

February - 31 May 2017


 This art exhibit is about photographic abstraction. Photographic Abstraction is a process where the photographer records an abstraction of an ordinary object, therefore challenging its essence.  There are about as many  ‘techniques’ used to create these works, as there are works.  After amassing quite a few photographs, but still not achieving my goal of a true abstract photograph, I realized there were certain criteria that must be met.  First, does the picture represent something real/tangible?  Second, does the abstracted image alter the viewers’ perspective of the initial subject?  Next, does the image require the viewer to participate?  And lastly, is the viewer exposed to a higher reality of the image?

 All these pieces are a simple representation of random subjects, yet all these subjects are connected.  Each nurtures human life.  Wassily Kandinsky said, "Color is the power which directly influences the soul."  And I think you'll find here, the use of color, or lack thereof, removes the commonality and creates an image of unknown origin, thus elevating it to some higher reality.  It is my hope that each image will move you, make you wonder, and soothe you.  It is also my hope that your very first words are, what is that?  Someone once said, form is feeling.  I hope you are feeling something as you gaze at the work before you.
