Whew, DC was bustling this past weekend. With FotoweekDC in full swing and the first weekend of the month, gallery shows are opening their doors showing off their latest exhibits. FotoweekDC took a backseat Saturday night, as I visited Street/Studio 2.0 at Irvine Contemporary and Monserrat Gallery. The exhibit showcased prominent street artists Shepard Fairey, José Parlá, Swoon, Romon Yang (Rostarr), David Ellis Chris Mendoza, James Marshall (Dalek) and Gaia. I traveled light between the two galleries as I didn’t have my DSLR with me. All my CF cards were with another photographer ***cough*** Ed Underwood ***cough*** being downloaded from a recent shoot, yes ALL my CF cards. My rig that evening consisted of my trusty iPhone4 and handy G11.
Oh and all the Shepard Fairey pieces, I think there were about 20 or so, all sold before the exhibit even hung at $2,200 a piece. DAMN!!
