Fragile Latitudes

I was so pleased to have some of my recent work included in Fragile Latitudes. I have found it is often a surprise to people to learn that much of the arctic is technically classified as a desert—hence the curation of this show: work from the arctic and the Sonoran desert. And both regions, despite their intimidating vastness and wildness are incredibly susceptible to lasting environmental injury.

The Los Angeles Center of Photography Third Annual Members' Exhibition and a Little Story about an Arctic Wedding

There's a lot of news to share and it's much better news than what you'll find on American TV  at the moment I am pleased to say, but for now I just want to mention this group show I will be a part of through the next month at the Los Angeles Center of Photography.  I am super excited to be in such good company with yet another Kotzebue image--this one of one of the strangest buildings in the village. I feel a little silly offering up a picture of a warehouse as part of a landscape series, but the structure  made me laugh every time I walked past it so I finally made a portrait of it one day last summer when I was in  northwestern Alaska for the wedding of two of my favorite people, a wedding that strangely enough I was responsible for documenting with my cameras (please note I did not nor will I ever refer to myself as a wedding photographer; I don't have the courage for that trade and I am in awe of those who can herd cats, perform advanced crisis counseling, and take pictures at the same time.)

Center for Fine Art Photography

The Center for Fine Art Photography is a fantastic resource for anyone who loves fine art photography.  I loved being a part of the Center Forward show and loved even more meeting and sharing work with the photographers included this year.  I highly recommend the center as a place to visit regularly as the work featured in the galleries is as innovative and fresh as any I have seen in galleries anywhere.  What a thrill!
