This weekend, adidas Originals hosted an immersive NMD Photo Gallery Experience curated by the world renowned, New York-based photographer and filmmaker Jonathan Mannion. With the aim to elevate and empower the local creative community, Mannion and 15 emerging street photographers participated in an unprecedented photo meetup.
On Friday, the legendary photographer led the photo meetup which culminated in a photographic series of hand-selected work. On Saturday, each photo was displayed in a state-of-the-art group exhibition. Supporting photographers include: @BrianWillette, @Kosten and @LastSuspect
“Working with adidas on this meaningful NMD project was personally fulfilling on a multitude of levels,” said Mannion. “This endeavor gave me a unique opportunity to share the knowledge I’ve amassed over the last 25 years under inspired, creative conditions. Imparting my personal process with this crew of emerging photographers allowed me to shape a new generation of talent as well as reflect upon and honor those who helped groom me. I saw myself in each young talent and my affection for them and their future artistic possibilities was evident in the individual studio portraits I was able to capture and gift to each one.”
