Nic Rad "PeopleMatter"

Nic Rad's show "PeopleMatter" at Rare Gallery in Chelsea is so in touch with our world today. Rad creates portraits of celebrities, bloggers, and media personalities. Rad,in an interview with PaperMag, discusses how the idea for this exhibit came about:
"The last 18 months I've been thinking of an industry and trying to make a portrait of a period in time. That's journalism. The structure is kind of inverted at the moment and what "free" means is fascinating, between who writes for blogs and gives away their content to generate traffic and who's behind the pay wall. And what that means."
