Retrospective Opening / Book Launch at Wall Space Gallery

My exhibition Retrospective is now on exhibit at Wall Space Gallery. The opening reception was this past Saturday, and it is a beautiful show. Crista Dix has crafted a very strong narrative with her sequencing of the show, which features work from 2001-2011. It was a thrill for me to see work from my new series The Forest on a gallery wall for the first time. Coinciding with the opening was the release of my first cataloguePhotographs: 2001-2009. It was a wonderful weekend, and to have all of this take place in Southern California (where I grew up) was quite special. Thanks to all who attended the opening, to Crista Dix for mounting such a wonderful exhibition, and to my dear friend Mary Virginia Swanson who has helped me so much over the years (and who had a huge hand in the development of the catalogue.) If you are in Southern California between now and November 20, I hope you will be able to view the show.

First prints from The Forest to debut at Wall Space

The first three prints from my new series The Forest will be released this Saturday, October 15. They will be shown for the first time as part of my exhibition Retrospective, which opens at Wall Space Gallery the evening of October 15, 6-8 pm. Prints from The Forest are printed in an edition of 10. They are 24”x16” (image) on 32”x24” Hahnemühle cotton rag paper. If you are in Southern California, please stop into Wall Space Gallery for the first glimpse of my newest work. Retrospective runs from October 12 through November 20.

Interview and 12 photographs in Fall 2011 issue of SLANTED

This summer I was contacted by Corbis, the stock agency that licenses my work. They had been in talks with German typography magazine SLANTED, which was interested in publishing a number of my images and interviewing me for their Fall 2011 issue, Experimental. It is a gorgeous quarterly, as one would expect, and there are five or six different covers. The issue is now out, and features a two page interview and a dozen of my images (as well as a portrait of me in the contributors section by emerging artist Zoe Rosenthal.) You can click through and view several images above.
