We went to this amazing exhibit the other day at Fergus McCaffrey gallery at Chelsea. This installation, named "Oil Pond", is by the Japanese artist Noriyuki Haraguchi.

Technically a sculpture, Oil Pond is installed flat and just off the floor and contains dark, acrid-smelling, spent machine oil. Oil Pool acts as a dark mirror that reflects the New York City skyline outside and the gallery’s spare architecture inside, underscoring the friction that exists between the contemplative splendor of that reflection and the polluting nature of the materials.

It's such an incredible place to play around with your camera and to take selfie with the pond.

The all-white, natural ambience really hits the point and is currently our favorite setting for photos. If you have the same aesthetics, we strongly suggest you paying a visit.

The exhibition will be on view from January 17 through February 21. So still a few days left to check it out!
