Since Forever Is Gone

Are you in New York City?

If you are in New York, you are the Atlantic Ocean closer than me to seeing photographer Ruvan Wijesooriya's newest show, Since Forever Is Gone. So ... could you go check it out for me?

The opening is TONIGHT (11 February) at The Gallery at Soho Grand Hotel, 310 West Broadway between Canal and Grand, from 7:00pm. I believe the show runs until 31 March so, if you can't make tonight on such short notice, there is still time!

Ruvan's work is beautiful, sexy and exciting. He shoots film (big respect), mainly on compact cameras with inbuilt flashes, so there is this feeling of speed and momentariness to his work. He has this uncanny ability of showing us the moments we didn't know we really needed to see, capturing an emotion that wouldn't otherwise exist in our memories. Ultimately, Ruvan's images reveal a lot of his subjects, but even more of Ruvan himself.

See the show.
