Holga Out of the Box Show

























Two of my images, "The Last Stand" (top) and "Vernal Pool", were selected by juror Michael Kenna for the annual upcoming "Holga Out of the Box" show at the TCC Gallery in Longview, TX. The show opens on October 4 and runs through November 30. I've always been an admirer of Michael Kenna's landscapes, so I am extremely honored to be included in this show.

Toyed With Show

I am happy (and damn lucky) that two of my images will be in this year's Toyed With Show at the Open Shutter Gallery in Durango, Colorado. The show runs from August 3 through September 3 (with an August 3 opening). My images were both shot with a Holga 120N and are titled "Balancing Act" and "Off Season". "Balancing Act" is an image of a boy in a clear vinyl bubble at a water park ride and "Off Season" is a recent shot of lobster traps in Gloucester, MA. This is the third year that there has been a Toyed With show and this is the third straight year that I have been fortunate to have images in the show.

Winter Weeds ink transfer onto aluminum

An image I shot with a holga a couple of years ago. It now has a new life as an ink transfer onto aluminum roof flashing. Lots of bubbles and imperfections, just the way I like them.

Foggy Morning, Dry Reservoir, Middlesex Fells Reservation

I have always been intrigued by Nancy Rexroth's photo titled "White Sky", Chauncey, Ohio, 1976" (I'll let you google it). It's a perfect summation to her wispy, dreamlike images in her seminal book Iowa. It's really nothing more than a a field of white with a black, Diana camera film border. I'm not even convinced that it's actually a photograph, which makes me love it all the more.

This is my image, shot on a recent foggy morning with my Holga 120N. I was thinking about Nancy Rexroth's image when I saw this. I guess I was not quite ready to tilt that camera up another ten degrees or so. :)
