About CCNY Darkroom Residency Program 2013 show
Camera Club of New York (CCNY) presents the work of four New York City-based emerging photographers chosen for its 2013 Darkroom Residency Program: Pierre Le Hors, Pixy Yijun Liao, Francesco Palombi, and Brea Souders. Each artist will have a solo show in CCNY’s gallery in the coming year. Selected by a jury, they were chosen to do workspace residencies, based on their exceptional work.
Born in France in 1981, Pierre Le Hors graduated from the ICP-Bard MFA Program in 2010. His book Firework Studies was published by Hassla in 2011, and his work was recently included in the exhibition Vague Storytelling at CCNY. An upcoming zine published by Dashwood Books, Byways & Through Lines, is due out in early 2013. Pierre lives and works in Brooklyn.
Born and raised in Shanghai, Pixy Yijun Liao is a fine art photographer currently living in Brooklyn, NY. Liao’s photographs have been exhibited internationally, including solo shows at Adam Shaw Gallery (Memphis, TN) in 2008 and Chinese American Art Council (New York, NY) in 2011. Liao received the En Foco New Works Award in 2012, and has won spots in Magenta’s Flash Forward – Emerging Photographers 2011, CPW’s Photography Now 2009, and Hey, Hot Shot in 2008.

Born in 1991, Francesco Palombi is an artist from Rome, Italy. After moving to New York, Palombi attended the General Studies Program at the International Center of Photography in 2012.
