Coming Soon

I'm feeling a Monika Grzymala homage coming on. (I always sketch out potential homages to Monika Grzymala in the style of an airline safety manual.)

The Fence in Brooklyn

I couldn't be happier to have my work shown on United Photo Industries' "The Fence" in Boston in Atlanta. But come on, Brooklyn is where it's at. The Fence in Brooklyn Bridge Park debuted last week, and will stay up through the summer. Thanks very much to Sam Barzilay and all the editors, curators and gallerists who judged the contest.

CPW Acquisition

I'm delighted to report that The Center for Photography at Woodstock recently acquired a 30"X40" (ed. of 9) of Plates no. 3 for its public collection. Thanks very much to Ariel Shanberg and Julie Grahame.

Crusade for Art CSA

I am participating in Jennifer Schwartz's new CSA program, in which collectors can buy a $350 share (of 50) and receive signed, editioned prints (also in editions of 50) from me and five other photographers. They're all great, and I happen to be big fans of a few of them, namely Shane Lavalette, Jennifer Greenberg and Kerry Mansfield.

The shares went on sale today and apparently they're already more than half sold. Act fast!

My shoot is imminent

I'm in the late planning stages here. Installation in Novato, CA starts Friday. We shoot Saturday. I think I have everything I need, except for the lightweight fence posts, the tent stakes and a few buckets of sunscreen. Also I'll require wind. Gusts around 15 mph please.

"The National" at The Fort Wayne Museum of Art

Winning may be everything, but I couldn't be in better company down there in the "Juror's Merit Award" category of this photography show/competition at The Fort Wayne Museum of Art in Indiana, running now to June 15, 2014. I'd been admiring Marcus DeSieno's microscopic portraits just recently, as he and I are also in this show, but Scott Dalton's very powerful documentary work is new to me (documentary photography know-nothing that I am), as are Annie Laurie Erickson's ghostly, nighttime images of Louisiana oil refineries, which she shoots, furtively, with a mysterious device she calls an "afterimaging camera."

"Cups no. 2"

The dismastlement of "Thank you bags no. 1"

It's somewhat quicker taking these things down than it is putting them up.

Wondrous Indeed catalog

I was thrilled to see "Cheese Balls" on the cover the "Wondrous Indeed" catalog. The show is now open at the Center for Fine Art Photography in Fort Collins, CO, and runs through February 22. The opening reception is on February 7 from 6-9.
