Klughaus Gallery Photographs – Ricky Powell “Oh No He Didn’t!” Opening

We are really late with this but better late than never.  Here are some photographs of the Ricky Powell show from back in June that we had in collaboration w/ Memes NYC titled “Oh No He Didn’t!…”  As usual, it was a great turn out for the Rickster and thank you DJ Smoke LES for the tunes.

Right after this photo, the cops grabbed Ricky for having an open container but they let him off with a warning.. haha

DJ Smoke LES – Great guy and a local!

The following photos from the opening are all by Johnny King:

They say that summer is the “quiet season” for galleries…

Some pictures taken from 5BORO from Go Skateboarding Day last week…

They opened the skate park down the block just for a preview on Go Skateboarding Day:

The skate park was close right after Go Skateboarding Day but this didn’t stop the kids from clipping the fence and skating it Saturday morning!  I was proud to see some Old New York tactics were still around.  It wasn’t long before the NYPD came to kick everyone out though.

Boo… (fixed)

Steven Siegel has been photographing the streets and subways of New York for the past 30 years. When young people today look at his shots from the 1980ʼs, they are aghast.

He graduated Columbia University with a Masters of Science in Urban Planning.

Michael Fales can be found photographing the streets as the city comes alive in the morning, or exploring itʼs tucked-away nooks. His photos have appeared on numerous websites, books, and exhibitions. He currently resides in Brooklyn with his wife and two cats.

Graham Shimberg is a photographer, track-walker, freight-nerd, and bindle-stiff.

Bob Barry documents graffiti amidst the paranoia and the Disney-fication of a post-9/11 New York.
