East Hampton on West 22nd St.

blog_gallery_goround.jpgCalvin Klein, Salman Rushdie and Kevin Bacon were among the art lovers and Hamptons regulars who showed for the opening of photographer Clifford Ross’s show, “New Hurricanes,” at Sonnabend gallery. The exhibit features 18 large-scale black and white images that the artist shot during the 2008 hurricane season off East Hampton’s Georgica Beach. Ross, who’s had careers as an abstract painter, film producer and businessman (he licensed the character Babar for toys, books and television) has also made a name for himself as a high-tech camera tinkerer. The beautiful and detailed photos were shot using a proprietary digital photographic system that he developed himself.
