We hope you’ll join us at the first ever Worn Magazine photography exhibit at Biagio Fine Chocolate (details below) and also get your picture taken in pictorialist-style by Josh at the Phillips Collection tonight.

Opening Sunday, November 7th, 5pm
Runs through November 14 during Biagio’s normal hours

For the latest issue of Worn Magazine, Josh photographed Katie Musser, a chocolatier at Co Co. Sala in Chinatown as she handmade a Cruella de Vil-themed dress out of chocolate for the 2010 Sweet Charity pagent. Weeks of shooting and hundreds of photographs later, Musser won the runway competition at the Mandarin Oriental, and Worn Magazine had a story. Take a look behind the scenes of the photo editing process at Worn Magazine’s first ever photography exhibition featuring 39 chromira prints, many with hand-written captions, that give a glimpse into the world of chocolate, photography, and fashion.
A Photographer/Street Artist Collaboration
Opening Thursday, November 11th, 6pm
Runs through December 17 during Honfleur’s normal house
Honfleur Gallery, 1241 Good Hope Rd. SE
Honfleur Gallery and Josh take the experience of creating a portrait and and turn it on it’s head by pairing 10 portrait photographers with 10 street artists and asking the artist to create an art work interpreting their own “likeness.” The exhibition will feature twenty artists (ten photographers + ten visual/street artists) with an exhibition of ten original portraits and ten interpretations of that portrait. Likeness Photographers include Bo Zhang, Chris Usher, David Holloway, Erica Allen, Jason Horowitz, Joshua Yospyn, Lois Bielefeld, Joshua Cogan, Matt Dunn, and Michel Frankfurter. Likeness Visual/Street Artists include Diabetik, Brandon Hill, Decoy, Asad Walker, Matthew Shlian, Lance Wiggs & Buck, Heather Stevens, Earnest Concepcion, Mike Estabrook, and Peter Chang.
