    Went to see it yesterday. It's a fairly large exhibit (+/- 100 prints, if I remember correctly) Beautiful prints. Some of the humorous, whimsical images had some of us in the gallery laughing out loud.
    Large exhibits usually exhaust me but not this one. I left feeling I wanted to see more which, I believe, is the way it should be.

    The prints are very large but the grain is hardly noticeable which surprised me. He shot 35mm in available light after all.

    Worth seeing and while there, check out "Winter", a book by Jeffrey Conley. The images are so beautiful that I purchased it on the spot.

    ICP has nice rotating collections albeit its limiting viewing space. I was there a few months ago for Capa's Mexican suitcase, which was pretty cool.

    Never been terribly impressed with ICP, but going tomorrow to check this out. Thanks for the heads up.

    I saw this Friday. It's excellent. If you're in town, by all means go. Thanks, Renato.
