Prize One and Prize Two: Urban Outfitters and Leica.
I have two prizes to give out today, based on tireless research and observations I have made this morning. Let’s call them the December 17th awards.
Urban Outfitters pays better attention to what’s up in photography than a lot of gallerists. Just who is running the show over there? They seem pretty psyched to hire really, solidly clever artsy folks and let them do their thing, just with some UO clothes thrown in there.
Three examples? Thomas Prior, Marcelo Gomes and Estelle Hanania. I know there are many others, but these are a good representation. Here are some of their results…. what do you think?
Leica is making good, relevant ads. They make me want to buy their cameras, though that could be because they’re, well…. Leicas.
