MARTIN CARTAGENA | STILL AS EVER
On view at PERCY May 14 - June 27, 2015
Opening reception May 14th 6:30-9:30 PM
Percy is pleased to present a new body of work from Brooklyn based photographer Martin Cartagena.
Following the tradition of well known street photographers including Bruce Davidson and Diane Arbus, Cartagena's photographs capture both the essence and the edges of city life. A prolific and driven documentarian, he sets out on foot each day to chronicle the bizarre and every day moments of New Yorkers in their environment. Cartagena shoots with reckless abandon, always candid and always on film, creating images that are strangely beautiful and poignant and sometimes uncomfortable. Cartagena possesses a unquestionable knack for hitting Cartier Bresson's Decisive Moment - a moment most of us might overlook. For Cartagena, no subject is off limits, and no moment too small. Still As Ever is a joyful and voyeuristic journey through the boroughs of New York, recording loners, lovers, subways, parks, and pigeons.
Pleas join us for the opening of Still As Ever, Thursday May 14th, 6:30- 9:30 PM at Percy.
