Thoughts about 9/11

With this sad anniversary coming up, it remains an American historical bookmark of loss, courage, regeneration, erosion of personal security/privacy, and yes, these things can happen here…

All images were taken in New York and Chicago 2001-2003.

Fort Collins, CO 80524,   970. 224.1010


My work is included in the “Center Forward” exhibition that runs from April 29-June 11, 2011. The Center for Fine Art Photography always has wonderful and stimulating  exhibitions-if anyone is in the area, please stop by and you won’t be disappointed with any of their shows! The image included in this show is from a new series called “Edible Botanicals” which focuses on food as a world wide scarcity.  It is a work in progress and will include images of soil and water, topics of concern for raising food and supporting populations.  This particular image is of “Bitter Melon,” a vegetable I was not familar with, but I found the warty, textured skin fascinating.

My piece, “Dark Object” was selected for this competition and received an Honorable Mention. This is from a new series about monolithic objects.  These images are printed on matte archival paper which gives the surface a velvet quality.

The Competition has no limit as to subject matter or technique, but the finished print size cannot be larger than 6 inches in each direction. Mattes and frames cannot exceed 12 inches in each direction. Our juror will be selecting the images to be exhibited and will award prizes as well.

The Juror: Richard Klein Exhibitions Director, Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art Ridgefield, CT. Richard Klein is a Connecticut-based artist, curator, writer and Exhibitions Director of The Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art in Ridgefield, CT.The Aldrich is one of the few non-collecting contemporary art museums in the United States.

Soho Photo Gallery is the oldest artist-run photography gallery in New York City. It was established in 1971 by a group of photojournalists and avant garde photographers who were seeking an alternative gallery space in which to exhibit their work.
