Meet photographer and music industry vet Michael Alago (He signed Metallica and Nina Simone, OK?) at at BGSQD (Bureau of General Services Queer Division bookstore) for the NYC launch of Beautiful Imperfections, his newest book of photographs. He will be joined by special guest Mina Caputo and together they will read selections from their book of poems, observations, and rants: Night Blooming Jasmine Will Never Smell the Same.
FYI: The Bureau is featured in New York Magazine's "Best of New York 2013" issue, in Time Out New York's "50 Reasons Why NYC Is the Greatest City in the World" issue, and in Time Out New York's "100 Best Shops in New York City" issue.
Alago's follow-up to the smoking' hot Brutal Truth (April 2012, Bruno Gmünder), Beautiful Imperfections is the first commercially published book of photographs shot entirely with the Hipstamatic iPhone camera App (that we know off). The resulting 10" x 10" coffee table book contains over 120 tough/tender signature Alago portraits.
