LAND ARTIFACTS

 

Friends, it’s time to Spring ahead, and I must say that 2018 has already been quite the year so far, with my work already in five exhibitions, including the current Empty Spaces, Abandoned Spaces at the Praxis Photographic Art Center in Minneapolis, MN (thru March 17), and as a featured artist in Digital vs Analog at the Hive Gallery in DTLA (thru April 6).

Just ended is The New Pictorialists, my month-long co-curation with art critic Shana Nys Dambrot at YourDailyPhotograph.com. Continuing on the curatorial bent, I’ll be jurying this year’s Prix de la Photographie, Paris (Px3) – entry deadline: March 31.

There’s big news with my writer-photographer collaboration High & Dry, with two new dispatches on the ecologically rehabilitated Whittaker-Bermite site in Santa Clarita, California, formerly a fireworks and munitions plant. The stories will be syndicated as always on KCET’s Emmy-winning Artbound, but you can see them here first.

High & Dry is revving up for our first institutional exhibition opening at the Museum of Art & History (Lancaster, CA) just two months from today’s date – Saturday, May 12, 4-6pm. LAND ARTIFACTS will feature all black & white infrared photographs and is the first art exhibition to integrate historical objects from MOAH's permanent collection.

Oh! And I’m on my way to Houston for FotoFest this week. If you follow me on Instagram, I’ll be reporting on my experience from deep in the heart of Texas.

In that spirit, here's your Photo of the Month, available for purchase directly from Chungking Studio at 20% off in either 17x22” or 24x34" limited edition prints (thru April 15).

Created for the exhibition
GUNS, this image addresses the romantic mythology of the American West – a cinematic reverie of pioneers, cowboys, and lawless individual freedom. Essential to the nation’s cultural identity, these majestic lands are increasingly compromised, contested, and degraded.
