Two Of A Kind


Opening Reception: Saturday April 21, 2012 (6-10pm)

Klughaus Gallery and LRG proudly present 'Two Of A Kind', an exhibition of photographs by Tom Gould and Anna Delany, sponsored by Duggal.

Tom Gould and Anna Delany debut their latest work in a show which features photographs of the streets of New York shot exclusively on 35mm black and white film. Marking a difference between the millions of images of metropolitan New York, Gould and Delany's photographs document the frequently overlooked beauty of the neighborhoods and communities outside of mainstream media. Many images featured in their upcoming exhibition capture subtleties of everyday life from their adoptive neighborhood in Brooklyn's, Bedford Stuyvesant.



Individually following an instinctive pull towards the things that had influenced them early in life, Gould and Delany both found themselves immersed in the streets of New York, some 9,000 miles away from their homes in New Zealand.

Perpetually fascinated by the cultural movements birthed in New York, Gould let fate lead him to the city's streets. Suddenly surrounded by all the elements which growing up he had been so influenced by, Gould began documenting his environment with the insight of a local and the fresh perspective of an outsider.



He reflects, "Taking pictures on the street is like going to a casino, you never know who you're going to meet, what's going to happen, or what you are going to come home with. The fact that you can head out with a handful of empty rolls of film and return with images and memories that could last a lifetime, makes the gamble all worthwhile."

Delany shares a similar view. With an avid interest in people and humanity, the luck in her photography lies in the characters she encounters. “Some people I photograph I might know for a day, others I may end up knowing the rest of my life... It's all the people you meet along the way which make up your experience.”



Limited Edition Tom Gould x Anna Delany Playing Cards will be released at the exhibition (in association with the theme of luck.) Klughaus Gallery will also be hosting casino-style Blackjack tournaments for a chance to win signed editions of these custom playing cards as well as other prizes including LRG merchandise, prints and more! Please note that these will be non-profit games.

Exhibition will be on display from April 21 through May 13, 2012
