it is with great pleasure that i announce the opening reception for my show: a collection of photographs inspired by what cézanne called “petite sensation,” the suddenness of seeing the world around you.
the images live inside of handmade frames, designed and created by jason libsch here in our woodshop. the frames are things of beauty: white-washed poplar, with a deep profile, thin face and finger joints. designed to disappear, the slim nature of the frame contrasts beautifully with the 5′ photographs.
SHOW RUNS SEPTEMBER 23 – DECEMBER 2, 2013

7 – 9PM
if you’d like to receive one of these printed cards in the mail, let me know and i’d be happy to send it along.
i also made a set of offset-printed postcards to accompany the show. it is a limited edition of 500, hand-numbered.
my cats, fripp and eno, were unwilling participants in my impromptu backyard photo shoot yesterday. i was just looking for an interesting way to share the holographic foil stamp on the packaging, something i’m really excited about.
london-based curator stuart pilkington asked over 100 photographers from around the world to participate in his newest project BOOK • FILM • PAINTING and i’m happy to be one of them. this image is inspired by dutch golden age painters like jacob van loo and is part of a bigger series i’m working on surrounding the concept of intimacy. i’m always looking for models, so if you’re inspired by this image and interested in working with me, please do get in touch.

(show runs from jan 18th – feb 23)
the show, curated by aimee friberg, includes work that “examines our desire to make order from, or understand the interconnectedness of the universe, from subatomic particles up through the species. whether observing expressions of landscape – abstracted, bastardized or imbued with mysticism – or zooming in to see the patterns that exist at the particle level, we intuit the moving force that connects.”
this reminder of interconnectivity is particularly poignant at this time of year, so in the spirit of our collective newness, i share a few images from the first dawn of 2013, spent visiting 49 palms oasis in joshua tree.
this 30×30 mounted C-print entitled “key west” will be available at the cinematique benefit art auction this friday. these guys have been pioneers in supporting experimental film and video for 51 years now, happy to do my part.
