I had the honor of having my photos exhibited at the AGENDA Tradeshow in NYC on July 16th and 17th. The tradeshow is filled with booths from clothing brands, mostly streetwear and action sports. Buyers come through to make accounts with companies and stores. Where does a wall of my photos being displayed come into play? Well, a company called The Hygenic teamed up with the brand Flexfit to sponsor artists to display their work. To quote the press release, Flexfit was "introducing their designed creative station better known as 'Basecamp.' - a 'boundless platform that offers creative talents the ability to showcase their works, expressions, and lifestyle in all mediums.' This station is the embodiment of what HY.GEN.IC and AGENDA stands for: imagination, creativity, constant improvement." They picked two other artists and myself to have our own walls to expose our artistry. I was very happy with the size and location of my wall, it was right by the entrance to the show so as you walked in and out of the venue, it was easy to spot. I don't usually get prints of my shots so it was nice to see them looking good printed up to a good size (12 x 18). Colors and detail came out very nice.
I'm stoked to have been a part of something so awesome in such a creative environment, and to be able to showcase my art that I put so much time and effort into. Hard work really does pay off, and this time it was in a big way. The biggest thank you goes out to Corbin Cones from The Hygenic, the main person who helped set this up and made it happen. Thank you to the rest of the Hygenic team. Thank you to Andy Song, the Creative Director for this event (he is also involved with Flexfit Marketing in North America and is the director of Basecamp). Thank you to the rest of Flexfit. Thank you AGENDA.
Keep reading for an ongoing recap of the event, complete with pictures of course.
Here's some photos of the event to help put things in perspective a little more:
Booths from some of the brands:
An artist I met by the name of Mark Warren Jacques worked on a couple installations, this was one of them:
Another artist that was also sponsored by The Hygenic, Dane Thompson:
Shouts to my amigos who came through, some of them can be spotted in the two shots below but everyone else not pictured was greatly appreciated as well. It was a private event, the people who came I had to get wristbands for and all that jazz. I wish more of you would have been able to see it. If it was open to the public, I would've advertised it more prior.
Here's some shots the people above and a couple other folks (who are all credited in the captions) captured of me. Usually I don't post pics on my blog that aren't mine, but I wanted to make a well-rounded recap and a glimpse into the process. Here they are:
Had to throw on my Carmines for the big day..
