BRIDGEHAMPTON PHOTOGRAPHER JOEY FARRELL BRINGS YOUTH, CONTEMPLATION AND AN HONEST OLD-SOUL IDENTITY TO HIS WORK
Joey Farrell, local Bridgehampton youth, is independently exploring his own branch of creation: photography. At 18 years old he’s already been featured, and as the youngest member, in the International Photography Art Dealers’ (AIPAD) annual Photography Show at Pier 94 in Manhattan (2018), along with a gallery opening at MM Fine Art, Southampton, where he was featured alongside award-winning photographers such as Miles Aldridge, Nan Goldin, Peter Beard, Cindy Sherman and Christopher Makos in “Contemporary Photography” (2018).
Joey states, “To see my work alongside those of my idols was incredibly rewarding, as I’ve always questioned whole-heartedly the value of my work.” Following showing at MM Fine Art Southampton, he presented a gallery exhibition called “17”, with widely received acclaim, and Joey truly sees the sky as not only a limit, but also as an ever-changing board of creation.
At age 11 Joey found his passion for photography, and his first camera was a Canon t3i. He photographed everything that caught his eye: waves, surfing, landscapes, friends, moods, impressions, and more. He studied photographers like Kenny Hurtado, Jonathan Mannion and Stephen Shore, and journeyed further than his local Hamptons base to find unique inspiration and aesthetic to match his search. His range from oceanography to vulnerable friends has proved that the talent of his eye caries further than classic landscape.
Joey is also showing his photography from Thursday, March 28th, to Monday, April 1st, at Godel Gallery on the Upper East Side, which is hosted by MM Fine Art of Southampton. For more information, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
