I am humbled and honored to receive the 2014 Excellence in Teaching Award by CENTER. Thank you to this wonderful organization that supports photographers at all stages of their careers, to the incredible photographers that have shared their work and lives with me, and to Julia Dean of the Los Angeles Center of Photography who got me started.
I am so proud to announce that my series, Revisiting Beauty, has been recognized as one of the Critical Mass 50 Portfolios of 2014. Thank you to the Photolucida/Critical Mass organization and to over 200 jurors for this amazing honor.
So happy to have two exhibitions in New Orleans during the Photo NOLA Festival. I will have 6 pieces from Revisiting Beauty in the Currents 2014 Exhibition at the Ogden Museum, opening December 5, 2014 – January 4, 2015 Opening Reception: Friday, December 5, 6pm – 8pm. I will also be showing Counting to Ten in French at the Guthrie Contemporary Gallery and that opens on December 6th.
Currents 2014 is a juried photographic exhibition from the members of the New Orleans Photo Alliance, this exhibition takes place during PhotoNOLA – the month-long celebration of photography held annually in New Orleans. Roy Fluckinger from The Harry Ransom Center for Photography in Austin, TX was the juror.
I am thrilled to announce that the Magenta Foundation is publishing a retrospective monograph of my portraiture, coming out in Fall 2015.
Very excited to have my photograph, Pink Feathers, included in the exhibition, Post Portrait Photography at the San Jose Art Museum, curated by Susan Leask, opening October 9th and running through January 18, 2015.
This group exhibition of contemporary portraiture explores the aesthetic, psychological, and emotional implications of the gaze in photography today. Here, the traditional view of a portrait is subverted: instead, a dynamic and ambiguous relationship between object and subject develops. The power of the gaze is blurred the moment the sitter becomes a partner in the art-making process. Included in the exhibition are works by Nicholas Albrecht, Caitlin Atkinson Richard Avedon, Charles Berger, Jim Campbell, Kelli Connell, Gohar Dashti, Beth Yarnelle Edwards, Katy Grannan, Elizabeth Heyert, r.r. jones, Henrik Kerstens, Miguel Angelo Libarnes, Lesley Louden, Jana Marcus, Shirin Neshat, Catherine Opie, Aline Smithson, and Larry Sultan.
Very excited to have been selected to participate in the 2014 Review Santa Fe, the only jurored portfolio review in the U.S., that sets the bar for excellence in photography and helps promote and launch careers.
I will be exhibiting in the First Annual Member’s Show at the brand spankin’ new Los Angeles Center of Photography on July 12th, from 7-11th. Jurored by gallerist Paul Kopeikin, the exhibition features work of selected LACP members. 1515 Wilcox, Holllywood, CA. See you there!
