The First Halloween Parade in Hudson, sponsored by COARC, Hudson Department of Youth and the Greenport Rescue Squad kicked off at 5:30 at 5th and headed down Warren Street to Promenade Hill Center where an all-ages Costume Contest was held. It was preceded by trick-or-treating by young and old in Warren Street shops that sported a Halloween-Whale logo (only in Hudson.) There was also a Haunted House for most and a “Pumpkin Patch” (less frightening) for the little ones!
Elliot Ross‘s new book, with 50 photographs from his on-going series, “Animal” has been published by Schilt Publishing in Amsterdam, The Netherlands and is distributed in London by Thames and Hudson and in the US by Ingram Book Company.

Last night in Hudson NY, belo3rd and all of Warren Street was buzzing. Six galleries and the Opera House had receptions including the reception at Davis Orton Gallery for Sylvia Plachy. Sylvia’s friends, family and fans are legion and a substantial portion filled the Gallery and continued onto the sidewalk – all there to meet her and see her show, “Apparitions.”
Sylvia Plachy who will exhibit at the Davis Orton Gallery from September 23 to October 17 has a series of photographs of performer Tilda Swinton and writer-director, Sally Potter in the July 20 edition of the Village Voice. Online you will find a terrific slide show of seven images. Also, Plachy’s photographs can be viewed in an illustrated interview with Swinton and Potter by Melissa Anderson, on the occasion of the re-release, eighteen years later of the film they did together, “Orlando.”
The Photographer and the Self-Published PhotoBook
The self-published photobook is an exciting new avenue for photographers to present their work directly to the public. In addition, the photobook itself can be a work of art.
As part of the Davis Orton Gallery’s commitment to showcasing the work of contemporary photographers, the Gallery is sponsoring a juried photobook competition culminating in a gallery exhibition and sale.
