Part of the reason I decided to redo my website was that I have been all over the place with the kind of work I have been creating recently. Photography is no longer the main medium I work in. I have been shooting a lot more video (which can be seen on RenoNights.com). Therefore it no longer makes sense for the landing page to be my Photography work. I am slowly updating the portfolio but for now I have moved it to www.AtifAteeq.com/portfolio.
EL VACÍO NEW YORK, a traveling multi-media installation, brain child of the homie Gogy Esparza and Nikolai Rose. After showing in Tokyo and London Gogy and Nikolai bring the installation to New York at the Miny Gallery in Soho. The installation has a very dream like quality to it. You walk around a maze of sheer fabric draped from the ceiling while many layers of projections surround you from every angle. El Vacio is up for a limited time, I would check it out before it closes on the 26th.
“Y.N.RichKids are part of an after-school program called Beats And Rhymes. Started by the North Community YMCA and the Nellie Stone Johnson Community School(namesake of Y.N.R’s sister group The NSJ Crew) Beats And Rhymes is a reward-based program that helps kids make music when they keep up with their homework, reports City Pages’ Erik Thompson.” (via Huffington Post)
