Levi's Photo Workshop Takes Manhattan
Posted by David Ozanich — 6 Oct 2010
I swear I’m not shilling for Levi’s since I posted about them just yesterday. I don’t even wear jeans (just corduroy for me, thanks!) However I came across the Levi’s Photo Workshop, today and thought it seemed worthwhile to mention. Billed as a “community-based venue for collaboration and creative production,” it opens tomorrow at 18 Wooster Street in the part of Manhattan known as SoHo. So say the PR team at Levi’s:
These public facilities feature a professional--grade studio, vintage camera rental, and a myriad of other bits and bobs to keep you shooting in style. For several months, we are inviting leaders from a variety of cultural fields, non-profit organizations, artists and the general public to share valuable resources.
As I said, it opens tomorrow, October 7th, with an exhibition called “New York: New Work” which leaves a bit to be desired in terms of creative titling, but does promise work from 30 different photographers. You can RSVP for that event, which starts at 8pm, here. In the meantime, here’s a video they put together:
Seems like a potentially cool thing and it might be worth checking out for those in or around New York.
