"Yard Sale" Hamptons-Style

If you're going to be in the Hamptons this weekend and not toiling away in the bowels of the library like some people, you might drop by the book signing reception at Glenn Horowitz for Adam Bartos' Yard Sale, a collection of still-life photographs of that all-American pastime where one lady's cast-off is another one's new prized possession.

Or, if you want to get all deep:
"Straying away from becoming nostalgic, Bartos’s images read more like anthropological studies than a longing of obselete playthings. Photographing at close range from an elevated vantage point with an objective eye, Bartos allows the viewer to connect the dots, supplying only the raw ingredients for our own story-making."

Saturday, June 20th 6-8 p.m.
Glenn Horowitz Art Gallery and Rare Bookstore
87 Newtown Lane
East Hampton, NY 11937
Tel: 631.324.5511

All photographs by Adam Bartos.

I mentioned about Bartos' book several weeks ago. Gosh, I would to be able to go (and not just because it is in the Hamptons!). I do hope "some people" aren't toiling away too too hard.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
