Partners International, a Manhattan-based human resources consulting firm, displays the work of different artists in their offices throughout the year. This summer, from June 18th through September 30th, the firm is displaying 65 photographs taken by Daniel Baitch, mostly over the past seven years. The display is called Poetry in the Junkyard (see attachment).
“This is a real thrill, especially since this opportunity came out of the blue, and I’m severely grateful to the Partners International staff for selecting me,” said Baitch. The title, Poetry in a Junkyard, he adds, refers to his obsession with finding visually interesting images in ugly, abandoned, decaying places – condemned houses, abandoned factories, farms, hospitals, wharfs, prisons, salvage yards, and other sites that are neglected, lost and forgotten. “The photos in the display also range from interesting people I’ve met to portraits to motor oil rainbows in street puddles.”
If you’ll be in Manhattan this summer, take a little time any weekday from 9-5, to see it. To set up a viewing time, contact Patricia Young, Operations Manager (212-537-7522) firstname.lastname@example.org). If you won’t be in Manhattan this summer, these photos are across various galleries at: danielbaitchphotography.smugmug.com.
