Hot Summer City: Street Photography Exhibitio
Hot Summer City: Street Photography Exhibition will be held in the cultural heart of Pittsburgh, PA: Lawrenceville. Home to celebrated artists, most notably Andy Warhol, the former steel-making capital is now referred to as “The Paris of Appalachia” due to its deep connections to the arts and world-class museums.
Vestige Concept Gallery is seeking street photography that captures the essence of urban life in the summertime. Summer is an intense and multifaceted season that brings joy, freedom, and social opportunities. When we think of representing the season through photography we envision warm light, deep shadows, and/or depictions of late nights, summer fun, and enjoying time outdoors. We are also interested in works that capture the darkside of summer: oppressive heat; struggling to keep cool; and surviving the “dog days of summer.” The show will be Special Guest Curated by Rafael Fuchs.
In 2012 Rafael launched Fuchs Projects art space, with its headquarters in Bushwick, Brooklyn, NY. This open creative lab platform features his works as well as artworks of many other emerging artists, and was featured in numerous art fairs, as Scope Miami, Art Market Hamptons, Select NY, Affordable Artfair Amsterdam, Art Karlsruhe Germany, and more.
Rafael Fuchs’ work is diverse, and includes portraits, fashion, personal social documentary, and street photography.
He published 12 books including “I AM AMERIKAN” (2011)
“Bushwick Forever_Volume 1” (2016), and
“WOMEN R BEAUTIFUL” ( Volumes 1-4) 2019-2021
