Melanie Flood emailed the other day to tell me about the next show that is going up at her space in Brooklyn which will feature the work of photographer Erica Allen and her project Untitled Gentlemen. The opening will be on Wednesday, October 28th from 6-9 so be sure to rsvp to Melanie (mfloodprojects@gmail.com). Also try and make it out to the Grace Kim show that is up at the gallery now. The prints are simply beautiful and Grace has a hand made book for sale that is unlike any photo book I’ve ever seen.

***UPDATE*** The Erica Allen exhibition has been postponed, more information soon.

Untitled Gentelmen is a series of fictional portraits created using discarded studio photographs and anonymous faces from contemporary barbershop hairstyle posters. Existing between the real and the artificial, these composite images aim to investigate the assumptions and projected meanings with which viewers read images.
