Thank you Aline Smithson for including me in the exhibition.
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.
A couple of weeks ago I invited local model Hannah to come by and create some images for Paths that Cross. This is only a sampling of what we accomplished that first day, still untitled. She has since been back for another shoot and so far it looks promising, too.
Erica Jay recently ventured south to help me add some more images to Paths That Cross. Being at the mercy of Delta Airlines, what should have been a few days of leisurely shooting turned into one marathon day, but what a day!
Working with Erica, I always leave with much more than hoped, we filled in some blank spots in the project and took it to some new directions. And Erica is pure joy to work with, though you can’t really call it work.
A very successful day and can’t wait for another.
