GO Brooklyn Recap 25,000 Check-In

Congrats to the GO team for successfully putting on a very ambitious weekend of open studios in Brooklyn.  Over 1800 artists participated! And the check-ins to studios across the borough tallied over 25,000!   My building, The Invisible Dog Studios in Boerum Hill, had 15 artists participate.
 
Thrilled to be able to meet some of the GO team responsible for organizing this event – Shelley Bernstein and Sharon Atkins.  Also, enjoyed a visit from Director of the Brooklyn Museum, Arnold Lehman.
 

 

RESOURCE MAGAZINE SPRING 2012

Check out the new Resource Magazine, Spring 2012.
Here is the great write-up by Christina Fong:
 
“When it comes to reality, Malcolm Brown certainly has a way with it. His sense of imagination is clearly felt in his photographs, which have an unmistakable dream-like and whimsical quality. Even his portraits go beyond a traditional sitting and are playful riffs on his subjects’ lives.
 

 
 
Trained as an anthologist and spatial sociologist, Brown has experience in observing and analyzing how people, live, work and play in a given space. But his critical and rational approach left him wanting more creativity. In 2007, after traveling to India and finding his camera to be a magic apparatus that connected him to people and places, Brown decided to switch to photography.
 
“What is important to me is that the images present a mix of mystery, light-heartedness, and drama – a curious brew that reminds me to take life lightly and that things may or may not be as they seem,” he said, adding, “I embrace that reality.” – Christina Fong for Resource Magazine
