If you are in NYC at some point until January 5th, highly recommended is the current photography exhibition at the Leica Gallery.
Jules Allen – Double-Up features photos taken at Gleason’s Boxing Gym in the mid-80s. Gorgeous, grainy, smoky, black and white photos that evoke a world you feel privileged to get a glimpse of.
Some of my faves:

Reminded me of how much my dad loved to watch boxing.
Steve was blown away by the depth of field in the photos, commenting how difficult it is to do even a mediocre attempt at something similar in photoshop.
Also on show in the Oskar Barnack Room find German and Austrian Photography including photos from Freud’s office!
Today was the second time I’ve been to the Leica Gallery - both times what was on offer was superb.
