This comes from James Danzinger’s blog The Year In Pictures (here).
Tonight marks the opening of The Sartorialist’s exhibition at Danziger Projects. (6 – 8 pm. 521 West 26th Street.) All are welcome.
The idea for the show began when I landed on The Sartorialist’s blog for the first time this past July and was wowed by the quality of his pictures. Here was a highly accomplished photographer with a uniquely personal point of view taking pictures digitally and then posting them on his blog. There was no connection to the art world evident – but I felt that here was the first real fine art photographer of the digital age.
“First real fine art photographer of the digital age” is a pretty big statement to make but I can certainly get behind someone who takes decent pictures but has excellent taste in subjects and has created a very narrow body of work.
