One gallery stalwart on upper Orchard Street is gearing up for a change in scenery. Anastasia Photo, exhibiting photography on the block for years, is relocating around the corner to 143 Ludlow Street. The move was just announced on Facebook and (in real life) with a small computer printout at the new Hell Square location.
In doing so, Anastasia Photo is trading one crummy landlord for another. Said new HQ is, of course, a notorious Samy Mahfar property. The controversial owner has been looking to score a permanent tenant in the north store for over a two years, settling on at least two pop-up galleries in the interim. The previous boutique occupant was booted just before the building was upscaled.
Anastasia Photo will officially christen the new showroom later this month (June 24) with an exhibition by Paolo Pellizzari.
Anastasia Photo specializes in Documentary Photography and Photojournalism. The gallery also serves as a center for discussion and portfolio review. With every exhibition Anastasia Photo makes a donation to a charitable organization associated with the photographer’s subject matter.
