Photoblogger's 'Commuter's Journal' Gets a Gallery Show

Jan. 9, 2007-- One of New York City's most popular photobloggers, Travis Ruse, is getting his own show that will open later this month at the Redux Gallery.

"Brooklyn to Grand Central: A Commuter's Journal" will be culled entirely from the 600-plus photographs from Ruse's subway photoblog.

For the past two years, Ruse has been toting, and using, his camera to and from work on the subways, tracing a weekday path from Park Slope to Midtown. His images, posted daily to the site, go a long way toward capturing the mood and look of the city -- from grit to beauty, and frustration to celebration.

Ruse, who works as the photo editor of inc. magazine, said this is his first proper show in the city. He's sold about a dozen of the prints directly from his website, starting at $300. The 50 pictures in the Redux show will range in size from 11x14 to 40x50, he said.

The exhibition will run from January 25 through March 9. The Redux Gallery is located on the 12th floor of 116 E. 16th Street in New York City.
