I'm excited about some of my recent entries being accepted into highly competitive shows. These works were selected by knowledgeable jurors and are shown in galleries that have impressed me with the quality of their exhibitions. I've worked hard to create photos equal to the expectations of these jurors and gallerists. Please have a look at these shows. They are full of excellent work.
"Jumbo," a street scene from a corner of Fifth Avenue, has been juried into "Night" at the Center for Fine Art Photography in Fort Collins, CO. It is also at the ASmith Gallery in Johnson City, TX. Anyone interested in contemporary photography will enjoy following both galleries.
"The Fun Is Over" is included in "ARTifact," a show at the Darkroom Gallery in Essex Junction, VT. Davey Rothbart, juror, captured the essence of the show. What struck me, as I pored over hundreds of beautiful, striking, poetic images submitted by a global array of deeply talented artists, was the thrilling fact that so many other people share my fascination with abandoned places and things. It brought me great joy to imagine each photographer on their own journey of discovery, jolted and tingled themselves, as they explored a shambling house at the edge of town, a rotting cabin in the desert, a junkyard heaped with ancient vehicles. These pictures gave me a chance to explore a range of haunted and exquisite spaces I might never have reached on my own, but more than that, they gave me a sense for just how many kindred spirits we have out there, a vast community of folks who share a particular curiosity and sense of wonder. Thank you for exploring; thank you for your unique vision; thank you for documenting what you've found.
