Frank Chapter 43 (out this Winter) will be guest curated by legendary NYC street photographer Ricky Powell. He has enthusiastically dubbed this the “Bug Out!” edition.
Ricky hand selected a cast of contributors who are as prolific and eccentric as the Bummy Sophisticate himself. This installment will feature an intimate look into the Rickster’s famed Greenwich Village apartment, as well as conversations with photographer Roberta Bayley, Ralph “The Funky Uncle” McDaniels, MC / DJ Edan (who Ricky has dubbed “The Jewish Big Daddy Kane”), and many more.
Other Chapter 43 highlights will be photo/art collaborations between Ricky and a collection of artists (LOVE ME, Haculla, Dr. Dax, CHINO BYI, and others) and a new series of NYC street shots.
To celebrate the release of Chapter 43 as well as Ricky’s Silver Anniversary of “taking professional photos on a hangout tip,” select images from the Bug Out! chapter will be on display at Sacred Gallery in NYC this December. The show will kick off with The Ricky Powell Art Funk Explosion on Thursday, December 9th, featuring music by Chances with Wolves. Make sure you email your RSVP to events(at)frank151.com. The art show will run until the end of December, when Ricky Powell will conduct a World Famous Slideshow to bring the exhibit to a close. Frank 151
