Open exhibition in F-Stop Magazine

I'm honored and delighted that four of my photographs are included in the Open Exhibition in the December-January issue of F-Stop Magazine, now online.

The issue includes three photographs from the series, Where you are, along with "Reaching for the light," which I used as the cover image of my new tree calendar.

The group exhibition has a diverse range of beautiful, thought-provoking imagery by artists from around the world.

The f/D Book of Pinhole nears production

My photograph, "The undeniable existence of ephemeral beauty" (from the series, From destruction grows a garden of the soul) will be included in The f/D Book of Pinhole.
The f/D Book of Pinhole is a collection of pinhole photos by 99 photographers, representing the North and South American, European, and Asian continents in geographical and aesthetic diversity. The photographs show the "pinhole look" and the unique ways in which pinhole works with motion and time, bent film planes, infrared, and other techniques and formats.

The book is for
  • The uninitiated: photographers who are new to pinhole and interested in trying it
  • The experienced: pinhole photographers who are looking for great examples of a
    format they’re already working in
  • Lensed photographers: to broaden horizons and see the world in new ways
  • Collectors: to find new artists to research and follow
Kier Selinsky and Libby Selinsky, founders of the f/D website and Subjective Press, are seeking funding to print the book through January 1, 2017 via Kickstarter (see my photo in the examples of printed book pages there!). Backers can receive not only the book, but also a 23" x 25" press signature from it and/or a print by Kier Selinsky.

Holga & Friends Out of the Box

Two of my photographs will be included in the Holga & Friends Out of the Box exhibition at Tammy Cromer Photo | Sculpture | Gallery & Productions.

This is the inaugural exhibit in Tammy Cromer's new gallery space in Dallas, TX, at 2543 Farrington Street. The gallery can be reached by phone at 903-241-4844.

The exhibit runs from October 29 through December 31, 2016, with an opening reception on Saturday, October 29, 2016, from 5:00 - 8:00 p.m.

This year's juror for Holga & Friends Out of the Box was photographer, teacher, lecturer, author, and curator Harvey Stein. He said this about judging the show:

“Holga photography still lives, even if the company no longer does. The work that I chose for this exhibit confirms my strong affection for the magic and mystery of the fraction of a second, whether captured by an outrageously expensive $8000 camera or a toy camera that is the Holga. But really, it’s not the camera at all, it’s the intelligence, feelings, and needs of the artist, and here we have many artists brilliantly exploring their lives, environments and emotional states.  Long live Holga; long live the artist.”
