Retail therapy

The New York Times this week picked up on Andy Freeberg's Sentry photos - front desks of Chelsea dealer galleries. While the work's not entirely new - I've featured it before, as has Over the Net - but the Times have added this great quote from one of the dealers represented:

“He sent me an e-mail,” Mr. Freeberg said. “He was really upset. He said he thought the work showed a lack of engagement with the subject.”

Funny that.

The series, rather than the quote, serves as a nice link into Martha's bold move into retail, soon to feature an incredible front counter, if the sketches are anything to go by.
