Into My Arms, the transition piece from the Paths That Cross series to an as yet new, untitled series for the coming year. Tatum once again graced the studio for the inaugural image, a lighter palette, subtle textures, minimal props, leaving the mind to wander several directions.
Received word this morning that three of my images will be exhibited at the Body/ Image InterPhoto Exposition Photo-Concours International, Roscoff, France, September 29- October 13.
The three images being featured in Body/ Image are Rocks, Creekside, and Clasped Hands. Thank you jurors, Lourdes Delgado (Spain), Jim Gabbard (USA), Beatrix Reinhardt (Germany/USA), and Riichi Yamaguchi (Japan) for including my images in the exhibition.
Looking at my work from recent years, it is apparent the masters of Renaissance painting have had a significant influence on my photography. The lighting, color palette, and overall mood reflected in the imagery all reference the past. As I move forward, the imagery mirrors other times.
A recent session with Astrid Kallsen of Atlanta produced the above images and many more, natural light in the studio of the SE Center for Photography.
