EYE CANDY

Pictures at an Exhibition


This past year, more digital photographs were taken than in all of history—with much thanks, presumably, to Instagram. So it’s nice to see up-and-coming photographers working with more than just their phones. Here, the six talented winners of Photo District News’s annual The Curator competition mixing things up with milk, lights, color, and, yes, even semen.

“PDN Presents The Curator — The Search for Outstanding and Undiscovered Fine-Art Photography” is on view through August 7 at New York’s Foley Gallery, 59 Orchard Street.
