Hijacked- opening tonight!

Big City Press just anounced the release of their new book and exhibition, Hijacked. It features 24 Australian and 20 American photographers. Among the American artists showing are Amy Stein, Lisa Kereszi, Angela Boatwright, Alana Celii, Suzy Poling, Robin Schwartz, Sarah Small, and Jennifer Juniper Stratford.

" in collaboration with Big City Press and The Arm, enthusiastically present HIJACKED: VOLUME ONE, AUSTRALIA AND AMERICA book launch photo exhibition. Presenting the public with the most provocative and diverse new photography from Australia and America, HIJACKED breaks down barriers between artists, genres, and hemispheres to further the aim of contemporary photography.

While the work of each of the 44 photographers is wholly individual, the photographs collected in this book and exhibition speak of the time and place in which we live. HIJACKED embraces our prevailing wanderlust; these creative minds exhibit a fascination with international subcultures, fragmented trends, alternate lifestyles and urban landscapes. Explorations of suburban pleasures are placed on par with ‘high’ artistic experimentation. HIJACKED, a book of photography, is a survey of contemporary photography in both The United States and Australia."

Opening reception:

Friday, June 6th 7pm-11pm
The Arm, 281 N. 7th St., Brooklyn, NY
Music by DJ Rev McFly and DJ Teenwolf
