My Joshua Tree series, Zone of Transformation: Nature in the High Desert, has been self-published under the direction of Datz Press in Seoul. It is a limited edition of 300 offset, stitched, hard-cover books. Custom slipcases for 10 copies were made by Klaus Rotzscher in Berkeley as part of the Special Edition packaged with a print.
The handmade-book version of the Strangeness of Seeing project is a set of two books, one containing all the horizontal images in the series, and one with the vertical images. Both books are 18 inches tall and have full-bleed prints so the viewer can be immersed in the imagery. I presented prototype books at Photolucida in April to an enthusiastic reception then came back to the studio to produce the final books over the summer.
I am thrilled to report I’ve been selected as 2017 Artist in Residence at Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest, in Clermont, Kentucky. The forest consists of 14,378 acres of old logged hillsides approaching “old growth” status, and watersheds that run clean. I am looking forward to expanding my abstract nature imagery in a new ecosystem in the fall.
Bernheim was founded in 1929 as a place for people to find peace, understanding, and common interest in nature. The specific goal of the organization, which coincides with my own work, is to inspire the exploration of our deep connections with nature.
I am curating the exhibit wall at Photolab in Berkeley with Andrea McLaughlin, owner of the lab. Our first show is Ira Kaufman’s series, BEBOPNOW. This is a light look at the adult dating scene via symbolism, using small objects Kaufman made to be photographed. photolaboratory.com.
PHOTO Fine Art Photography, the gallery I directed, closed the Oakland location at the end of 2015, after five great years.
The image shown below was part of the Analog v. Digital! exhibit at Michael Foley Gallery, New York, August 2017.
