It takes a certain amount of finesse to mold a career while wandering without a plan.Expanding on notions of vagabondage, 24 apartments in five months, all for zero dollars, was how 24-year-old emerging cinematographer and aspiring filmmaker Karim Kassem managed to infiltrate New York's seemingly impervious film scene.Upon graduating, Kassem decided to venture over to the Big Apple to pursue his dreams.Some of those other projects involved volunteering as a first assistant camera operator on Carley Rae Jepsen's music video, which featured Tom Hanks and Justin Bieber, a Victoria's Secret Super Bowl commercial and Reinaldo Marcus Green's short "Stop," which recently screened at the Sundance and Tribeca film festivals.In the wake of his experience as a vagabond on the New York film scene, Kassem is currently penning a novella that he plans to adapt as a feature film down the line. One of the works that will appear in the show is a series of images entitled "The Dead Series". Kassem explained that only some of the photos from that series would be on view. Oddly enough, Kassem doesn't necessarily identify as a photographer.
