New York International Auto Show 2016

I LOVE COVERING CAR SHOWS – whether capturing photos of a couple in their rusty classic truck in a field or a CEO unveiling his company’s sports car in what looks like the set of a high-end ad shoot.

At the current New York International Auto Show, the only fields are projected on vast screens that seconds later might show cars speeding along mountain roads, or sun flares caressing beautiful women.

Early in the morning last Wednesday – Press Preview Day One of the New York International Auto Show – I packed my badge, Nikon DSLR with two lenses: 24-200/f2.8mm and 16mm 180-degree fisheye, and then took the LIRR to Penn Station and walked to the Javits Center.

For New York Fashion Week, Lexus commissioned designer Scott to wrap10 Lexus RX cars in prints from his Fall collection inspired by space cowgirl, a sign explained. This was Press Preview Day one of NYIAS, and the Trade Show will be open to the public for ten days, March 25th through April 3rd. (Ann Parry)

It was fun work, with lots of walking and opportunities for capturing photos of gleaming autos and people.

At the end of the day was a special surprise: Bodypainting artist Trina Merry and her Trina Merry Studio recreated the NYIAS official poster as living art, with the painted and positioned bodies of her models forming the red car shown heading up the road.

The artwork recreated the NYIAS poster. This was Press Preview Day one of NYIAS, and the Trade Show will be open to the public for ten days, March 25th through April 3rd. (Ann Parry)

And when I sailed off one of the slightly raised car platforms shortly before heading back the the Island,  I caught my balance – a great ending to a great day.

“Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close” NYC

From LONG ISLAND – by Ann Parry (ann-parry.com)

It felt like a punch to the stomach when I came across an eerie juxtaposition on 34th Street of the “Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close” movie poster & Manhattan’s iconic landmark, the Empire State Building, during my walk from B & H Photo to Times Square.
