Kodak Moments Exhibition

The Gurushots’ “Kodak Moments” exhibition will be held at the Usagi Art Gallery in New York. Opening night will be on Sept. 14, 2014.

Whilst I didn’t make the cut for the print exhibition, I did make it into the Digital Display section. Close but no cigar, hopefully next time.

Congrats to all the winners! https://gurushots.com/challenge/kodak-moments/winners/exhibit-digital
