I gave a gallery talk at my solo show at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts. Really great crowd, who asked super questions (and even sent me a number of e-mails after the lecture). Thanks Pittsburgh!
The artwork by the students of a local art teacher, whose spouse took a workshop from me, just won a bunch of awards. He’s going to use this success to (attempt to) convince his spouse into buying Photoshop and Lightroom for him….
Wowser — I was excited to see that my photo was one of the contemporary images included in the National Public Radio (NPR) Picture Show review of the Looking at Land exhibition — along with Timothy O’Sullivan (one of my photo heroes) and Ansel Adams. The review, “What’s The Landscape Of Modern Landscape Photography?” by Claire O’Neill was published 13 November, 2012.
Christopher Rolinson of Point Park University and I co-chaired the first-ever Open Show event in Pittsburgh. Open Show is an international organization that has featured 1,200 Open Show events in 15 countries over the past three years. The event was a great success, and the conversation spurred by the great photography continued on into the night.
I gave a lecture to Prof. Christine Holtz’s class at Robert Morris University on creating research based photography projects — I then met with them individually to help develop their ideas for their personal projects.
My work was one of the pieces included in a review of the Andy Adams/Flak Photo exhibition Looking at Land. The review was written by Paul Moakley, for Time Magazine. View the article at: http://lightbox.time.com/2012/09/26/looking-at-the-land-from-the-comfort-of-home/
I was honored to have my work included in Looking at the Land – 21st Century American Views, curated by Andy Adams, as the contemporary portion of the seminal exhibition: America in View: Landscape Photography 1865 to Now. This exhibition premiered at the RISD Museum of Art in Providence, Rhode Island. View the contemporary portion of the exhibition at: http://flakphoto.com/exhibition/looking-at-the-land
