An Invitation to Share in the Decadence

March of the Shadows (originally titled Shadows of Our Selves) will be shown at the Eye Candy art show in Park Slope at Cocoa Bar beginning June 30.

 

I got very excited when the proprietor of the Cocoa Bar, Liat Cohen-Reeis, invited me. Her shop happens to be literally right around the corner from where I once lived on 4th Street from 1997 until the birth of our second son, Nicky, in 2001. I loved living there. So, in a strange way, I feel like it will be a homecoming of sorts.

 

The show runs from June 30 until July 31, 2006. I sincerely hope you will pay the shop a visit once the show opens. Cocoa Bar is located at 228 7th Avenue (between 3rd and 4th Streets) in Park Slope, Brooklyn. To get there take the F Train to the Seventh Avenue stop.

 

This set represents the grouping of photos I have chosen to display at the show.

 

This is the original set I was asked to choose from.

 

A special thanks goes to my son Enzo for renaming this series. Because these photos were taken in March and these folks were marching to work, I originally titled the series "Marching in NY."

 

However, I was not entirely happy with this, so I hastily changed it to "Shadows of our Selves" for the show.

 

Then Enzo comes along and says "Papa, did you say they are called 'March of the Shadows'"? I smiled, knowing there and then what the true title of series had to be.
