The photography exhibit Only One at a pop-up gallery at 345 Broom Street opens September 4th, exhibiting the work of Michael Tischler, with part of the proceeds going to the National September 11 Memorial & Museum. If you’re a fan of HDR (the real technique, not the iPhone filter), on display are twenty large-scale photographs of iconic New York City scenes. Each photo is actually a compilation of three photos of the same scene at different shutter speeds, creating a bright, a medium, and a dark photo that are combined to form a layered, and detailed image. Each are printed on archival aluminum, and there is only one print of each sold–hence the exhibition title Only One.

The images include historic landmarks like Grand Central Terminal and Central Park as well as more obscure corners of our city. The proceeds of the sale of the photo “One World Trade Center” (top photo) will be sold, with the proceeds gifted to the Museum in honor of the many men and women who lost their lives that day.
