We couldn’t have asked for better weather or company Friday night on Pier 5 in Brooklyn Bridge Park for SLIDELUCK NYC XVIII at Photoville 2014. Thousands turned out to peruse the shipping containers-turned photo galleries. As the sun set over New York Harbor, folks filled up the beer garden for a taste of our potluck, Smorgasbord treats, and – of course – some Brooklyn Brewery. We had some potluck honorees at this show – Slideluckers Cassandra Giraldo and Andy Kropa whipped up some unforgettable madeleines and a summery watermelon-feta salad, respectfully, and Bruce Rayud baked a delicious apple-flavor babka. For their culinary prowess, they took home some mobile photography gadgets compliments of Photojojo.
The theme for this show was “Secrets,” and Gideon Jacobs, Creative Director of Magnum Photos, NY, and Matthew Leifheit, Photo Editor at VICE Magazine, teamed up to curate. Here’s what Jacobs had to say about the show:
“When you make a photograph, you’re putting something into the world that can, in its newfound existence, be viewed and shared. So maybe a photograph is never a ‘secret’ in the true sense; when we click the shutter, the secret is suddenly no longer all that secret. How is this related to our selection? I’m not quite sure. Actually I am – but, eh, I think it’s a secret.”
At SLIDELUCK NYC XVIII, we were proud to feature the work of:
Aaron Reiss & Nate Lavey * Andi Galdi Vinko * Bryan Derballa * Cassandra Giraldo
Curran Hatleberg * Daniel Terna * Eli Durst * Elsa Parra * James Gentile * Jamie Travezan * Jenna Garrett
Jim Kohatsu * Joe Guerriero * Johanna Benainous * Matt Grubb * Lauren Grabelle
Sam Wong * Scott Alario * Steven Quinn * Zak Arctander
From Bryan Derballa’s collection of off-the-beaten path swimming hole photos to Sam Wong’s series of night street photography, SLIDELUCK NYC XVIII was a fitting tribute to the bitter-sweet dregs of summer. This was one of our biggest shows of the year, and none of it would have been possible without the support of our generous sponsors and friends. A very special thank you to Brooklyn Brewery, Photoville, Viewbook, Sandbox Studio, Offset, Perrier, Flavorpill, Photojojo, and Uber.
