Submit to the 2021 ViewPoint Gallery International Print Competition
A Group Member's Exhibition
January 5-31, 2021
In Janus VewPoint Members share work, new and old, on the theme of the ancient Roman deity of doorways and gates, and the protector of the state in times of war. Represented with two faces, one looking forward, and one looking back, Janus is a theme that can be interpreted in so many ways - as life/death, beginning/end, youth/adulthood, rural/urban, war/peace, and barbarism/civilization. Come and visit our gallery to explore the god whose name is immortalized in the month of January.

This exhibit features photos taken on a photo trip to Havana, Santieras and Trinidad, Cuba. Many people have holidayed in Cuba and returned with standard holiday shots. Instead, in this show I share what I captured of the people and culture of this wonderful country.

Best Cookies in New York
Xavi Rodriguez Magaña, USA
Artist Statement This photo is a favorite from my photo series, Pod City, where I photograph New Yorkers wearing AirPods. In most cases like this one, I’ll see the AirPod first, and maybe find a story next. I was able to find a story here between these two chess players with various onlookers, playing on a cardboard box that read, “Best Cookies in NY”. With this series and the specific focus on AirPods, there’s a chance to zoom out and see a wide scope of people here in New York City. These photographs are meant to display New Yorkers of various backgrounds of class, race, age, gender, and beyond. One hope of mine is that the birds eye view of this collection brings a sense of unity - a message that we all share this city and its common experiences, from chaos to grace, together.
Artist Bio Xavi Rodriguez Magaña studied filmmaking at New Mexico State University and photography at Santa Monica College. As a workshop presenter for Apple, Xavi taught professional photography and photo editing to photographers from all around the world. Having experimented in a wide range of arts from digital sketching to spoken word poetry, Xavi moved to New York City where he is currently focused on his photo series, Pod City — a street level look at present day NYC, choosing to focus on the ubiquity of Apple AirPods among New Yorkers.
