What does it take to lure a photographer from behind the camera? Ask German/American photographer Abe Frajndlich, he knows, considering he’s been doing so since the 70s. His current exhibition at Tregoning & Company in Cleveland Ohio is a celebration of his publication, Penelope’s Hungry Eyes which contains over a hundred of these photographer’s portraits.

Frajndlich’s work represents a who’s who of the photographic world in recent years. The title, whilst also referencing Homer’s Odyssey stresses the insatiable need to photograph experienced photographers. Hence the title, Hungry Eyes.
