James Chapel show final week, more beautiful photos

It’s the last week for the current show at Union Theological Seminary’s James Chapel. The last day to visit the show is Friday, May 21st, 2010.

For those who are too far away in space or time to see the show in person, here is one more set of photos. Click to see them big.

These were shot by Michael Turek, who uses his pro-photographer powers to make nice clean lines happen in the incredibly vertical space of the chapel. It takes some special equipment to gather this much of the space into one photo, and I know it took some post-shoot work to make these look so good (Michael sends this correction– “all the work was done in camera, just a 24mm tilt/shift lens.”)  So thank you, Michael! To see more what Mr. Turek can really do with a camera, go visit his portfolio, it’s super-beautiful stuff.

Thank you to everyone who came out to the reception for the exhibit “Crossing” at Union Theological Seminary on April 15th. It was a great crowd, and lovely to spend some time in that magnificent space with all of you.

The brilliant cellphone camera photo above is courtesy of the inestimable B. Yanev.

The album below is the work of the talented Steve McFarland. Check out more of Steve’s work by visiting his website. Click on any of the photos to enlarge:

The show at Union Theological Seminary in the City of New York is up and almost complete— there is one more painting loaned from a private collection that will be added later this week. What a cool experience it was to see the paintings go up on the walls of a English Gothic chapel! I am excited that I can share some photographs with you of the paintings being installed in the space:


A big thank you to Troy Messenger, Emily Otto, and Scott Bodenner for their excellent help with the install.

The exhibit will remain at Union until May 21st, 2010.
