Plastic Fantastic

I'm honored to have had all 4 of my entries selected for APA/SD's Plastic Fantastic Exhibition and Benefit Auction.  Juror Joseph Bellows of Joseph Bellows Gallery in La Jolla selected 30 images that will be hung in a one night ONLY show at Subtext Gallery on Friday Sept. 3rd, 6-10PM.  All images will be sold to the highest bidder with an auction that night to benefit the AJA Project, a San Diego based non-profit that utilizes photography-based educational programs to transform the lives of displaced youth.  Come on by and check out some killer prints made from plastic cameras and an ancient plastic based material called film.  Who knows, maybe you'll leave with a great print.  And it's all for a good cause...Here's one of the images that was selected for the exhibition.  You'll have to come to the show next Friday to see my other 3 and the 29 other prints.  See you there!

Black & White Spider Awards

I did this shot in the courtyard of our studio during my 366|08 project. I really liked the shot a lot, but have had mixed reviews. Some people weren't that crazy about it...others shared my affinity for it. About a year ago, Dec '08 I believe, I entered it in a photo contest called the Black & White Spider Awards It looked like a prestigious contest with lots of great B & W work and a nice line-up of judges. Well contest season came and went in 2009 and I had forgotten all about this...then I got a google alert last night that my name had come up. It was for an Honorable mention in the abstract category of the Black & White Spider Awards. Well, lo and behold, I won an Honorable Mention in the Professional Abstract category. It's funny because I never got any kind of notification. Crazy...

Happenstance

I've been working with my friends over at Subtext Gallery to put together a great One Night Only photo auction and charity show this Saturday night, December 5th. The Auction will benefit The Monarch School. This is a not to be missed night of photography with just about every great San Diego photographer participating!!! Check out the details here. I hope to see you all there!
