I HEART NJ


I’m not sure that I’ll have time to make the road trip to the Pierro Gallery in South Orange, New Jersey to visit the exhibition, IS IT POSSIBLE TO MAKE A PHOTOGRAPH OF NEW JERSEY REGARDLESS OF WHERE YOU ARE IN THE WORLD? Curator Laurel Ptak has pulled together more than 1000 photos (including the one above) by 189 artists. The result is a brilliant compilation of the vernacular, profound, and absurd.

I’m gonna try to take a road trip there in the next few weeks. But for those of you who can’t, the catalogue is online for your perusal. Check it out.
