On Monday the 16th, The Knockturnal attended a private one night only exhibition by photographer Michael Jurick at the ultra luxurious venue The Glasshouses.
The exhibition, titled Infrared, features a series of photographs from Jurick that showcases natural moments revealed through infrared photography. This one night only event was a collaboration with The Chosen Few – an elite collection of artists and designers in the event space. 6 of the photographs on display were complimented by artists from the collective to create a unique multimedia presentation.
The night featured enough rose to fill a swimming pool and tasty bites such as truffle grilled cheese, spinach/artichoke dip, and shrimp skewers. There was also a live cover band and of course stunning floor to ceiling views of the Hudson river – I mean with a name like The Glasshouses would you expect anything less?
We chatted with Michael about the exhibition:
The Knockturnal: So tell us a bit more about this particular exhibit
Jurick: Sure over the past 4 years I’ve been collecting a body of work of my travels to Wyoming, Montana, Albania, Israel and in my backyard here in NY. So if you look at my photographs I capture all my photographs in infrared – I remove the censor from the regular digital DSLR and replace it with an infrared censor so it renders black – the whites turn sheer white and it creates an alluring quality about them that’s sort of hyper real.
The Knockturnal: And how did you choose the locations where you shot?
Jurick: Those are bucket list places. Albania for example was recently turned democratic, it was under dictatorship for years and its drop dead gorgeous. Its affordable and insanely historical.
