The Face of Rhizome Knows Only Flash Photography

Executive director Lauren Cornell and Christopher Pappas responding surprisingly well to having had their picture taken four times.

I missed the VIP portion of Rhizome’s benefit last night, which means I have nothing but second hand reports on the honoring of artist Lynn Hershman Leeson and the founder of, Joshua Schachter. It's too bad because I hear Lynn Hershman Leeson delivered an incredibly moving speech, though I do have this great photo essay in it's place. I'm not much of a photographer, so my pictures weren't taken with any objective in mind, though I hope by some fluke they capture the high spirits of the evening, and general convivial vibe. Photographs after the jump. MORE
