Exhibition will be open to the public through November 24, 2012
Carmichael Gallery is pleased to announce Like Father, Like Son : NYC, a retrospective survey of works by renowned Los Angeles-based Chicano father and son photographers, Eriberto and Estevan Oriol. The exhibition debuted at Carmichael Gallery’s Culver City space in the fall of 2011. The New York edition of Like Father, Like Son will comprise fifteen limited edition black and white, color, silver gelatin and digital c-prints from each photographer, including works exhibited in Art in the Streets (April 17 – August 11, 2011) at The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (MOCA). The exhibition, which offers a dramatic taste of the urban California lifestyle, marks the first showing of the Oriols’ work side by side on the US east coast.

Last night I was invited to attend the opening reception for Like Father, Like Son. A showing of Eriberto & Estevan Oriol’s photographs at Carmichael Gallery NY Pop-Up. I was pretty stoked to see some originals of their work, so I threw on my Estevan x Upper Playground hoodie and rolled out to the west side of Manhattan. I got in at 7:30, the turn out was great, the gallery was packed. Making a way through the crowd was a struggle at first (as with most good shows of course). But as people shifted towards the bar, started focusing on getting photos/signatures from the Oriols and started a smoke circle outside, things cleared up enough to really get a good view of the photos. Towards the end I took plenty of time to read the stories behind my favorite photos while having a couple cold beers, the show was a definite success and a good time.
