Where to Go and What to See

I'm particularly intrigued this week by Travis Ruse's and not only because I serendipitously met Travis while interviewing him about his recent promotion to Photo Editor of Inc. Magazine. The 50 prints in this Redux show have been culled from more than 600 Ruse has posted over the last two years to his photoblog, which chronicles his daily commute from Brooklyn's Park Slope to Midtown Manhattan. The site draws more than 20,000 hits a week and has been profiled in The New York Times.

I'm particularly intrigued this week by Travis Ruse's "Commuter's Journal," and not only because I serendipitously met Travis while interviewing him about his recent promotion to Photo Editor of Inc.

The site draws more than 20,000 hits a week and has been profiled in The New York Times. This strikes me as an undeniable testament to the heights photoblogs can achieve when they are personal, thoughtful, and consistent—as well as the increasingly easy transition photographers are making from website to gallery space.

Follow the link for the details, plus other not-to-miss shows, like Jen Bekman's favorites from this year's Hey, Hot Shot! shows and not one, but two chances to see Misty Keasler's fascinating/disturbing Love Hotels images.
