Little Big Man Gallery

Little Big Man Gallery is committed to exhibiting works by both established and emerging photographers.

All In–Buying Into the Drug Trade by photographer Graham MacIndoe will be on view from September 20 – October 31, 2014. This will be MacIndoe’s first solo exhibition in the U.S. and also celebrates the release of a limited edition book by Little Big Man Books. Each image from All In is a variation on a single object: a small glassine heroin bag stamped with an exotic or bleakly satirical brand name, all collected by MacIndoe when he was an addict.
