DOCUMENT the Fresh / NYC Opening Reception / Recap

The NYC opening reception of the third DOCUMENT the Fresh exhibition did not disappoint.  Props to the artists for bringing their best in terms of works and solid installations, both of which spoke to their personalities and styles.  Salute to everyone that attended, the Bishop Gallery for once again opening their doors to my ideas, props to Alexis (Madison Davenport PR) for the PR/marketing support, and thanks again to the participating photographers.  I’m planning a closing reception/BBQ to take place later this month so stay tuned.

DOCUMENT the Fresh will be on exhibit at The Bishop thru Saturday August 29th, so be sure to stop by, and for more info about the exhibition click here.  And to check out more recap pics click Read the rest of this entry

DOCUMENT the Fresh / Interviews: Vickey Ford/Sneakshot

Dangelo_FHNYC15-2583Who or what first got you interested in photography?

Music, Fashion & my Mom.  Music has always played a big part of my life.  My mother would attend concerts and shared her photos & stories.  My mother took me to see New Edition, the music & the lights …just the whole vibe and emotions that I felt instilled a love of music in me. And I wanted to capture that.  Then the hip-hop scene further intensified my love for photography.

Early on what were some of the first things that you began to document? 

The usual stuff; family, rocks, my feet but that’s when I was a little girl.  When I picked up the camera again as an adult it was my love for live concerts, wanting to capture that moment.  For the entire read click Read the rest of this entry

DOCUMENT the Fresh – Photography Exhibition / Closing Reception / Tuesday October 29th / The Bishop (BKNYC)

closing_flyer1Due to the overwhelmingly high positive response received from the opening reception as well as interest from the gallery and the photographers – doing a closing reception felt like a no-brainer.

In addition to the standard closing reception fare, there will also be a panel discussion (moderated by one of The Bishop’s owners – Stevenson Dunn) featuring the participating photographers who’ll discuss their backgrounds, processes, motivations, and other musings.  Attendees will also be treated to complimentary Heineken (6-7pm).  For more info click here.

pic14Very happy with how everything turned out with the NYC opening reception of DOCUMENT the Fresh.  Everything clicked – the space, the art, the music, the people – meaning the aesthetic was on-point  Thanks to everyone that came out, The Bishop and their phenomenal staff (Teneille, Erwin, Ernest, and Stevenson), Alexis (Madison Davenport PR), Team Epiphany for the Heineken hook up (Brandon, Susan, Coltrane, Lisa), Oscar (Red Bull) and of course – the photographers: Vickey Ford/Sneakshot, Chris Carr, Mariama Rafetna, and Steve-o and Brian David Harris whose on-site photos brought the Community Wall to life.

Capturing the essence of that moment—whatever it is.

DOCUMENT the Fresh – Concert & Event Photography Exhibition / Friday September 20 / The Bishop (BKNYC)

docfreshnyc_group_flyerAbout two months ago, E(rwin) from The Bishop, one of the owners of the gallery that hosted the first DOCUMENT the Fresh (recap), told me about their new space in Brooklyn and asked if I’d be down to do another.  I was hesitant, as our SHAOLIN JAZZ L!VE date at BB King NYC was coming (which was a big deal) and our SHAOLIN JAZZ college lectures were starting shortly thereafter so I wasn’t sure if I’d have the time or head-space to coordinate a second show (note – I normally plan 6-8 months, at minimum, in advance for my events).  But after some additional talks and me always enjoying doing events in NYC I was down.

This year’s lineup of photogs have an amazing range of work and if this show will be anything like the first exhibition then it should make for another strong presentation.   This year’s lineup includes Vickey Ford/Sneakshot, Chris Carr, Mariama Rafetna, and Steve-O.  I’m also happy to announce that Heineken and Red Bull will be providing complimentary product and The Stark Life will be providing media support.  Brian Harris will also be on deck shooting live event photos for our community wall.
