For a third year in a row, B&H & Lindblad Expeditions made us enjoy the OPTIC Photo show hosted by the New Yorker Hotel in Manhattan, a collection of talks and images held by luminaries of professional photography. This year the guest speakers went from Sam Abell and Alison Wright from National Geographic to Art Wolfe and to Jill and Kyla, two runaway girls who presented their adventurous Thelma-and-Louise-type life through pictures that gathered an impressive following on the Instagram. Their less technical approach was replaced by a freshness that was awarded with rounds of applause.
As usual, a number of outdoor events were scheduled, this year the main tour happening on Tuesday in the Bronx Botanical Garden. On Monday night the cruise on the Hudson happened under a sky that tried to withhold a downpour but entail the photographers to shoot atmospheric images from the boat.
