moma's new photography show

after a 7 year hiatus due to it's redesign, ny's moma is exhibiting their 'new photography" show. an exhibit which the curator described as what she found "is compelling, fresh and less familiar." here's a mini slide show" to go with it.

an interesting observation by the ny times columnist philip gefter, as saying, "different curators are likely to arrive at different conclusions about what's going on in the medium at any particular moment in time. the photographers chosen for "new photography '05" certainly reflect something about the knowledge, judgment and taste of the museum's photography department. the question is whether they represent this moment in photography as well." i would love to see a flickr set on this if anyone has one, please let me know.

I wanted to check this out but had to register with the ny times (which i don't mind doing)... just didn't have the time to mess with it. I suppose I'll get to it eventually... this looks AMAZING.

hopefully, someone will come through with a flickr set.

oh ya, forgot about that sign up thing. it's just a small slide show anyway - so don't worry about it. perhaps there will be a flickr series.
