Storefront for Art and Architecture is proud to present VISIONS, a project that brought 5 photographers from around the world to construct a vision of a building.


The inaugural VISIONS project took as its subject of investigation the location of Storefront’s 30th Anniversary Spring Gala: 5 Beekman, known to many as Temple Court. 


Each photographer was asked to produce a series of prints that unveil and construct a different reality of the building.


These photographs were displayed at Storefront’s 30th Anniversary Gala on March 1st inside 5 Beekman.



About the building

5 Beekman Street, also know as Temple Court or the Beekman Palace, is  an 1882 construction. This building, constructed to replace the ashes of a burned building, was the first building in New York to be built with fire safety codes. The current state of the building, between sublime decay and solid ruin, will undergo complete restoration and transformation into a hotel. 


Construction started 5 days after Storefront’s Gala took place.

Benoit Pailley  lives and works New York and Paris. He is inspired by contemporary art and his passion is reflected in his elegant still life and installation photography. The objects become “works of art” in an environment that recreates gallery spaces. When conceptually appropriate, he builds installations that frame the objects in unique and stunning ways.

His first solo exhibition, Passport, was presented at the Flux Foundation in Geneva in March 2008. He is a regular contributor to Sleek and Double magazines and won German’s Lead Award in 2006 for best photographer in Still Life/Architecture category.
