June 2, 2010 - Some of film and television’s best and brightest still photographers got the chance to be in the spotlight when “no Talent! Images from Behind the Scenes,” the first Annual Eastern Region Photo Exhibition, opened May 25 at The International Cinematographer’s Guild, Local 600, 80 Eighth Avenue, 14th Floor.
Twenty five images were chosen by juror Alyssa Adams, deputy photo editor of TV Guide Magazine, representing a wide variety of shots taken on a set or location in the film and television world. The only rule for the exhibition was no stars, first team or guest stars - hence the title “no Talent!” - but could include any behind-the-scenes shots, including background actors, stand-ins, crew, prop shots and locations.
The purpose of the “no Talent” exhibition is to highlight the talent of still photographers, whose work is all too often overlooked. Those unit photographers, whose work is represented, include: Patrick Harbron (“Ugly Betty”), Eric Liebowitz (“Law & Order”) Myles Aronowitz (Michael Clayton, “White Collar,” Date Night), Will Hart (“Law & Order: Special Victims Unit”), Peter Zimmern (“Law & Order”), David M. Russell (“The Good Wife”) and Jessica Burstein (“Law & Order”), among others.
The “no Talent!” exhibition is scheduled to run through the summer.
