Paul Cupido
At Danziger Gallery - New York 
We are pleased to announce the opening of our new New York gallery at 952 5th Avenue (at 76th St.) with the first U.S. show of works by the acclaimed Dutch photographer Paul Cupido. Cupido's imagery deals largely with natural world seen through the eyes of a visual poet. Interwoven processes - different cameras, papers, and scale - constitute his versatile approach to photography while exhibiting a consistent vision and aesthetic. Informed by a Zen sensibility, Cupido's work reflects upon notions of beauty and the quest for inner peace, searching for moments of the sublime in the turmoil of the transient. Readers of the New York Times would have recently seen Cupido's image "Suave" used to illustrate Meghan Markle's op-ed piece on empathy and loss. The image (illustrated above as the right hand part of a diptych) was thought by many to be the Duchess of Sussex herself but is not. We are honored to open our new space with this show of 52 of Cupido's photographs ranging in size from 5 x 7 inches to 24 x 36 inches. Viewing is open to the public under the normal Covid protocol of masks and social distancing. Current gallery hours are Wednesday to Saturday 12-5pm and by appointment. Paul Cupido was born on the small Dutch Island of Terschelling in 1972. He graduated cum laude from the Fotoacademie Amsterdam and began exhibiting his work in 2017. Presented at Photo London and at Paris Photo - his photography was an immediate sensation leading to his representation by Danziger Gallery. In the fall of 2021, the exhibition will move to our Los Angeles space, Danziger at Fetterman.

A Photographer
As a photographer, this may come as a shock, but better to get it out of the way upfront: Instagram is about more than pretty pictures. Even the most talented photographers go unnoticed on social media without the right strategy. If you want to use Instagram to grow your photography business, you need a plan for increasing Instagram engagement.
