If you are looking for something fun to do this weekend, my roommate Swifty will be doing his first photo show tomorrow night in Bushwick. Independent filmmaker Derek Doane Deems is hosting a Photo Show and Dance Party at the Old Red Schoolhouse as a fundraiser for his short film "Landing." The Schoolhouse is at 330 Ellery St in Bushwick, Brooklyn. There will be pictures by a number of local photographers on display and for sale, cheap booze, and live DJs, which sounds like the makings of a fun party. The cover is just $5 at the door.
Swifty has some really tremendous photos ranging from historic baseball parks to street musicians to self-portraits, of which only a handful will be on display tomorrow. He tells me that the other photographers being showcased are equally talented, so it should be a good show.
