    It was pretty packed last night. The exhibit was on the third floor. The photographs are a diverse collection of different subject matter and photographic techniques. I am though curious about the camera and lens that was briefly mentioned in the exhibit he used, a wooden Kodak of some sort with I'm am guessing a wide angle lens to give quite a bit of distortion to his nudes he shot at very close range.

    Thanks for the update. I'll be a few blocks from there tomorrow and will not be able to make it due to prior commitments. Hopefully in a couple of weeks!

    I haven't been to this yet but I've been hearing good things. AIPAD is taking over most of my week but I plan on checking this out sometime this week!

    This is definitely worth a visit ! I did not see lots of Brandt's work before, and I've been very happy to have this opportunity
