Photography Exhibition by Omar Z. Robles at Café Grumpy in Grand Central
Saturday, February 20, 2016 from 12-4 pm
(New York, February 9, 2016) Sugarlift and Café Grumpy are teaming up to hang the photography of New York City photographer Omar Z. Robles at Café Grumpy's Grand Central Terminal location. The photos will be hung from February 16th to March 15th.
Omar’s photographs of dancers on the streets of NYC have become an Instagram sensation, thanks to his knack for capturing movement at just the right moment. The result is almost surreal, the dancers frozen in their poses as the city seems to moves around them. Omar’s first connection with visual storytelling was actually through the art of mime theatre, studying under Marcel Marceau in Paris. Later, studying for a B.A in Communications and Arts, he discovered in photography a new way of telling stories without words; and with photography, he found he could immortalize moments for even longer. He has since explored as many areas of photography as possible, finding an immense passion for photojournalism in the process.
To celebrate the show, Café Grumpy at Grand Central Terminal will host “Coffee with the Artist” on Saturday, February 20 from 12-4 pm. Guests should register for a ticket through Eventbrite, to present for a FREE cup of coffee at the event. The first 50 ticketed guests will also receive a free, signed print of one of Omar's photographs. Work in this show is also available through Omar's artist page at www.sugarlift.com/omarzrobles!
