One of the many joys of New York City is coming upon gems in the less frequented byways.   This morning I came across a lovely small gallery--Station Independent Projects-- nestled among apartment buildings on Suffolk Street just below Houston on the Lower East Side.

Inside, perfectly arranged and curated, is a show called Black Moon by Megan Cump.  The individual images are mesmerizing, and the overall effect leaves one with the sense of having been someplace else, a place you cannot quite remember, while you stand blinking on the side of the road at dawn.
