“Two Of A Kind” – Tom Gould x Anna Delany from Klughaus Gallery on Vimeo.

Klughaus Gallery and LRG present, “Two Of A Kind”, an exhibition of photographs by Tom Gould and Anna Delany, proudly sponsored by Duggal. Opening Reception: Date: Saturday, April 21, 2012 Time: 6:00pm-10:00pm Location: 47 Monroe Street New York, NY 10002 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.” “Two Of A Kind” launches at Klughaus Gallery on Saturday 21 April and runs until 13 May.
