We announced a couple weeks ago that Austin Thomas would soon be spatially reinvigorating Pocket Utopia on the Lower East Side, and that the new space would host a preliminary christening and one-evening exhibit of photographs by Donald Steele, The Queen and I. This all came to pass last night, and the show turned out to be an extensive installation of largely pink-flected prints that might well be likened to so many iterations of the royal ‘we’—as individual images as well as collectively.

We humbly offer, below, a few glimpses of all of the above, with a reminder that you already have plans for the last Sunday in April.

So, too, do we.

As nosisms are also quite useful editorially.
