The Amazing Food Service has just opened Zimbel’s Cafe at 410 Adelaide Street West in Toronto . It is a comfortable neighbourhood place serving great food in a comfortable environment. The installation of a wall of George Zimbel’s New York photographs by Stephen Bulger Gallery makes it a visual experience that reflects a way of photographic presentation that is fast disappearing…silver gelatin prints made by the photographer…in this case, Andrew Zimbel’ s father. They are hung salon syle.
The Kennedy photograph on the wall is also included in the Museum of Modern Art travelling exhibition “Picturing New York” now on view at Museo di arte moderna e contemporanea (MART) a Trento eReverto in Italy. It will then travel to the Irish Museum of Modern Art in Dublin.
