About a month ago, local photographers and artists were tasked with a challenge: create a Halloween-inspired portrait and anonymously submit it to a contest that was held at The Gallery on 47th Street on October 29th and 30th. We received 14 photographs and invited the general public to view the collection and cast votes in two categories, BEST OVERALL PHOTO and BEST MAKEUP AND COSTUME. The event was scary-good, the quality of the photographs absolutely floored everyone who attended, and the voting was extremely close. The best part was that nobody knew who photographed which image. Until now!
Pat Kane Photo, in collaboration with EDGE YK, present the participants and winners of FACEOFF HALLOWEEN!

A very special thank-you to everyone who came out in support of our local photographers, makeup artists and models. We hope you had a great time viewing the collection. And a round of applause to the participants for signing up for this creative challenge, espcially to those who don’t normally show their art publicly. It is a big deal to put your creativity on display and you should be extremely proud of what you achieved. Congrats to all of you!
