“Niagara” Juried into Exhibition by Legendary Collector W.M. Hunt

Niagara, 2006 © Barry Steven Greff 2012

Forgive me for posting my signature image Niagara again, but the fact that it has been juried into a gallery exhibition by the legendary collector, W.M. Hunt, is too important not to re-post. Niagara has previously been juried into exhibition by Joyce Tenneson, considered one of the most prolific photographic artists of our time and the image has been recognized by numerous luminaries of the photography world. This exhibition will be at the Photo Center NW http://pcnw.org/ in Seattle, Washington from August 3-September 18, 2012.

W.M. Hunt is a champion of photography, a renown collector, curator, consultant and dealer. He was a founding partner of the prominent photography gallery HASTED HUNT (which is now www.hastedkraeutler.com) in Chelsea, the heart of the photographic art world in New York City. He and his collecting have been featured in The New York Times, Photo District News and The Art Newspaper as well as on PBS. He is a professor at the School of Visual Arts and on the Board of Directors of the W.Eugene Smith Memorial Fund and The Center for Photography at Woodstock, N.Y., where he was the recipient of their Vision Award in 2009. He also served on the Board of Directors of AIPAD (Association of International Photography Art Dealers) and as chairman of Photographers + Friends United Against AIDS. His recent book The Unseen Eye is based on his forty years as a collector www.wmhunt.com. Hearing him speak at the Palm Beach Photographic Centre, he is also a captivating speaker, having been an instrumental player in the history and recognition of photography as an art form.

Having my work juried for exhibition by Joyce Tenneson, Chris Pichler of Nazraeli Press, Susan Spiritus, Aline Smithson, Karen Irvine and Hal Gould, amongst others, has been a great honor. Now being recognized by Bill Hunt is (to use a common metaphor), some serious icing on an already outstanding cake.

    Congratulations! Still love watching your work. I’m taking a group of photographers to the Susan Spiritus Gallery tomorrow.

      Thanks Chris. She is a highly respected gallerist and has juried 4 of my images into two different exhibitions at the Center for Fine Art Photography in Fort Collins, CO. Put in a good word for me, I’d love to have some work in there some day. Also, look for the work of my friend Adrian Roland Davis when you are at the Gallery. Thanks again, Barry
