5+5: Larissa Leclair. Photo Bookworm. Rockstar Realtor. July 15 2017

In our newest 5+5 interview we hit up art-supporting superwoman Larissa Leclair, whose triumphs in and out of the art world make most of us wonder if we’ve been seriously slacking off. For one, Leclair founded the Indie Photobook Library, a jaw-dropping collection (now in the safe-keeping of Yale University) that includes over 2,000 photobooks from around the world. She’s also an accomplished lecturer, award-winner, contributor to TIME Magazine’s “Best Photobooks of the Year”, vocal proponent of self-publishing photobooks and champion of emerging artists, and an avid art collector. Her newest venture? Redefining real estate as a brilliant realtor. Leclair’s endeavoring attitude even came across in her responses, a few of which you can peep below—thoughtful, poetic, and enthusiastic. This 5+5 feature is one you won’t wanna skim!  – Team 20x200

Boardwalk Glory: Vintage Ride + Old School Arcade c/o John Margolies July 11 2017

Arcade by John Margolies
8"x10" ($24) | 11"x14" ($60) | 16"x20" ($240) | 24"x30" ($800)

Disco Star by John Margolies
8"x10" ($24) | 11"x14" ($60) | 16"x20" ($240) | 24"x30" ($800)

The boardwalk brings to mind the best of stress-free summer antics: roller coasters, pinball, bumper cars, funnel cake. And of course, the beach. Whether you’re at Coney Island or Santa Cruz, the boardwalk is built-in beach fun (for those who require a little something else on top of the waves, sand and sun). ‘Wholesome’ is a word for the extracurriculars here—a stationary epicenter of crowd-pleasing amusement that’s made all the better by an ocean view. ‘Timeless’ also rings true, especially when you get a look at the two John Margolies photographs that make up today’s extra-special double edition release. You might mistake the locale as a present-day pier, but these images are straight outta the 1970s...

We’re hiring! Wanna Be Our Customer Relations + Operations Coordinator? July 10 2017

20x200 is looking for a part-time Customer Relations + Operations Coordinator to join our small-but-mighty team. The right candidate for this role is a highly organized professional who thrives on creating (and maintaining!) order and is always a stickler for getting the details exactly right. This role will be a minimum 4-month commitment for 25-28 hours per week at $20/hr to start, but may well evolve into a long-term position if it's a good fit. This job is primarily on-site at our Dumbo offices, but you’ll also have the option to work remotely on occasion. We live on Slack!

We’re looking for someone supremely skilled in online customer service—providing amazing customer support is something we take very seriously. You’ll also be our primary liaison with vendors, which means you’ll need to be a confident and firm communicator, a spreadsheet whiz and a cheerful, cool-as-a-cucumber deadline conqueror and enforcer. Experience in a gallery or art world environment is a plus, but what’s most important is that you’re meticulous, polished, motivated, kind, and as excited about art as we are.

Click List: What We’re Oohing Over Post-Fireworks July 06 2017

Few things are capable of rallying us out of a sweet, sweet, BBQ and sunshine-induced stupor. And don’t say "cold shower" ‘cause we tried it and it just made us miss the pool. Thankfully, the interwebs is here to help. Some light mining of our overflowing inboxes and a mild social media sesh reminded us of some of the awesome things other people are up to—and what’s more motivating than keeping up with the cool kids? Besides, we can eat more watermelon in our swimsuits while avoiding our responsibilities as soon as the weekend rolls around... – Team 20x200

Jens Ochlich’s Star-Spangled Stunner: “American Mobile Home” June 27 2017

American Mobile Home by Jens Ochlich
Jens Ochlich caught sight of this star-spangled stunner while en route up the interstate in San Diego, CA. Hunting it down behind some warehouses, he found the vehicle parked between a number of other RVs—all permanent dwellings. He'd taken note of the new crops of mobile homes popping up along the railroad tracks near his own house, keeping an eye out for the four-wheeled residences, but this particular trailer really captured the photographer’s attention. Needless to say, it also snagged ours. Somewhere between peppy and strangely forlorn, timeless, even surreal, Ochlich's 20x200 debut demanded its spot in our summer art collection...

We Sea You: Prettify Your Walls with This Painted Beach Scene June 20 2017

Beach scene by R.G. Harper Pennington
Hard to believe it’s still technically spring given the sweltering weather we’ve been having in NYC, but it’s true: tomorrow is the first official day of summer. Our toes are exposed, our farmer’s markets are full of tomatoes, and our ACs are cranking. All that’s left is to give our walls a li’l seasonal upgrade courtesy of today’s new release—a summery seaside Vintage Edition from 19th century painter R.G. Harper Pennington...
