"The ancient creators of photography smile upon young darkroom fanatics, especially clutch shot-makers like Blake. He is keeping the dream alive."
“The photographs that BLAKE has created capture moments of city living at its best and its worst. Photographing the quiet moments, the forgotten souls, humanity's capacity for self destruction, and all points in between. He is a natural behind the lens. The way of his pictures and the way of his way are the same: strong and good and genuine.”
“Blake’s work speak of an openness to the vagaries of the human condition, the acquired intimacy of the best type of confidence man, and a devotion to wet film photography worthy of the best of the late 20th century invasion of privacy photographers. You can read joy, arrogance, desperation and obliviousness in his subjects. Black and White nerds can get lost in the silver prints this guy has made this show. It seems he’s always on the go and always getting into something, often something questionable. This is a generous and vulnerable gift these people have given Blake and Blake has giv en that to us all.”
