I know I have been neglecting my blog and my website in general lately. Â I’ve had Â quite a crazy Â past few months. I am now living in Astoria, NYC. My lady and I decided to try out the city a few months back and before we knew it I was commuting to a new job right after Sandy hit. We signed a lease a few weeks later, moved and started a new life. I have still managed to shoot some photos and I promise to have some new work from the tail end of 2012 as well as start a 2013 portfolio.Â
I am hoping to get some shows down here and continue sharing my work as I was upstate. Â Please continue to check out my site and i hope you enjoy the work that will soon show up.Â
p.s. i am looking into the Fujifilm fine pix x100s. has anyone had the x100 and have any comments?
I just posted some new work on my home page. They can also be seen in the portfolio “Featured Work.” They are all the images that were in my most recentÂ installation that ran for almostÂ twoÂ months in Bev Saunders gallery inÂ theÂ Shirt Factory. Â The installation was called, “Community Unseen” and I am very proud of Â how it came out.
One of my focal photographs was of a gentleman named David. He lives on his own with the help of a social worker do to a mental illness he has had all of his life. He has a gentle soul and I am so happy to have met and photographed him. His photo was featured on my installation cards and he saw them and came to see the show. he he is at my installation. Do to how happy he was to be involved and see himself Â i gave him his photograph.
Here are some photos of my current installation, “Community Unseen”. They are all photographs of people from Glens Falls, which lead to the way I installed all the photographs. If you like it go check it out in person! I’m really proud of this show! It will be up until Aug 25 at Bev Saunders studio space in The Shirt Factory.
This Wednesday, July 18, I will be hanging my installation “Community Unseen” at Bev Sauders new space in The Shirt Factory in Glens Falls. The opening reception will be Saturday, July 21, from 4:00-6:00 p.m. Anyone in the Glens Falls area or surrounding areas should stop by!!
