Lexi very kindly let me work with her on a series about her dealing with depression. These photos were submitted to a gallery show in Australia, but unfortunately were not accepted for the show. But here they are along with a short Q&A about them and how they came to be.
Lexi – depression
She’s not tiny, but she is talented. I’ve posted a few we did from our last shoot in JULY on the Public Galleries page.
Come see our last show at Sic Sense Theatre (we’ll be back at Tempe Center for the Arts in April) and find out what’s going on in all these pictures.
Oh, and we perform in color : P
You can see photos from past shows here: The Cosmonauts
I had the privilege of making some photos with Carolina last week as she nears her due date. She had three poses in mind, but then after taking care of those she indulged me with two more ideas I had.
I am grateful for the opportunity to share in this very special time in her family’s life. In the last few years I’d been lined up to do photos for several expectant mothers only for scheduling conflicts, health issues, self-image issues, and one miscarriage to prevent the shoots from happening (I’m happy to add that the couple with the miscarriage now have an adorable baby girl). Pregnant women are beautiful and I’m grateful to have been able to make these portraits with her.
Yesterday a member of the Texas Photographic Society notified me that the juror for the contest to which I’d submitted the above image accepted the above image as one of 50 pieces for their next show. The show will be at “The Silos in Houston” starting October 26th.
I made the photo from the rotating lounge of a hotel in Los Angeles in April of 2018 and I think it’s one of my better landscapes, even though it’s in “portrait” orientation. I’m quite pleased that it was selected and will be on display in print form.
Now I just have to go make the print : P
I shared this directly on FB earlier, but this photo of the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Department in Phoenix will be on digital display in Hungary in October.
Woke up today to find that I’d received an honorable mention for not ONE but TWO photos I submitted to this year’s contest. You can find them on my Published / On Display page. Look for the round green badge : )
Something from July is in the Public Galleries. Better go have a look!
