I recently saw a show with photography displayed by Gail Quagliata. She is a New York-based mixed media artist focusing predominantly on urban landscape photography. She did a series in which she photographed every Bodega in Manhattan. I found this to be ambitious and thought provoking. Capturing an essence of NYC that is always transforming in landscape and in character. She also has a cat named Optimus Prime and that is just awesome! Check her site out!
