2 new images

My model C came through for me once again. We've been having odd weather this summer - so...much....rain! However, bright sunshine is far worse for shooting in so I had to wait for an overcast day that didn't threaten torrential downpours. Not only did I have to wait, but C had to be at the ready, which is tough for any model to be. Well, I have 2 successful images from that day:





Today, I am going to either scout out locations or attempt a shoot on my own. Not sure how feasible that is, but will try. Although the sun is shining, I should have no problem finding shade.

Blurb here I come

My first book - self-published anyway. I am turning Rabbitholes and Revelations into a table top book. It's costly so I will be printing only one up right now but Blurb puts it on their site and people can purchase copies and I get 100% profit. I am really looking forward to this. Very exciting! I will more than likely purchase an ISBN number but right now, first things first. Will keep everyone posted on when it's complete.

Mr. Colin Ford

Today I met with British author and photo historian Colin Ford. A nice gentleman who was nice enough to make time to see me and look at my work. I brought a few of my outdoor nudes, my whole "Rabbitholes..." series and whatever new work I have. As he warned me, he said he wasn't able to do a whole lot for me though he seemed to like my work. I asked him if he would be able to write something about my work when his plate isn't so full (he is curating 3 exhibits, one in Hungary). He said he couldn't agree to it right now because of how busy he is. I understand. His main advice is - what I have been hearing - to keep doing what I am doing.

Yes. Since 1995-ish, I have not stopped photographing. I won't stop now, especially with this project I am on. It is frustrating, though. A dramatic analogy - I feel a little like an adorable stray puppy that lots of people are passing up saying "you are sooo cute, but unfortunately, I can't take you home". I will still wag my tail, show the big eyes and stay hopeful that one day someone will take me home.

website

I've decided to give the old website a little facelift. I've removed all of the mixed media work and am only showing a few images per series of the work pre-Rabbitholes. It's not up yet - I will post when it is, but in the meantime, I have changed my News page and needed to put these images somewhere. They are important to me in that I don't seem to have many shots of me actually working. So for those of you that haven't seen these:

and that was today

Hot and sunny but I had my woodland creature with me so we had to partake on a journey. We danced in the "ruins" near Lefferts Blvd. We walked together down a dirt road behind some industrial park in Nassau County. Tomorrow, I have a frog to kiss and see if he becomes a prince.

It's great to be an artist :)
