Pete Eckert "Exposure Photo Competiton Winner"
This event has ended.
“I never really took photography seriously until I went totally blind.” This extraordinary statement comes from Pete Eckert a uniquely talented photographer who was just announced the winner of the major photography competition: “Exposure” hosted by Artists Wanted.
Following in the footsteps of recent public art exhibitions that have permeated the city, Mr. Eckert’s work will be shown in an ambitious public display spanning the top art districts of New York City. The figurative work, which features explosions of light and teeters on the verge of abstraction, will be projected on a massive scale on buildings and rooftops within Chelsea, Dumbo and Williamsburg. The projection series will culminate in an opening at the Leo Kesting Gallery in the Meat Packing District on Thursday August 7th.
Over the past three months, Artists Wanted received hundreds of submissions from photographers spanning 14 countries and every corner of the United States. Three judges selected the winning artist: New York Times Photo Editor Patrick Witty, Fashion Icon Tiiu Kuik and NYC Gallery Owner David Kesting.
