Exhibition at The Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design

Heading off to Milwaukee tomorrow to install my show at the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design's  Perspectives Photography Gallery. 
I'll be showing new work from Guayabera Series. Looking forward to giving an artist talk and studio visits with the students there and of course spending time with my good friend Sonja Thomsen.

Still Thinking About Still Life

"It is an art that points to the human by leaving the human out; nowhere visible, we're everywhere. it is an art that points to meaning through wordlessness, that points to timelessness through things permanently caught in time. That points to immensity through intimacy. An art of modest claims that seems perennial, inexhaustible. " - Mark Doty

Thank You CPW!

Its so weird adjusting back to my normal life after spending such an amazing month away from home. Wow, i can't believe its over. This month long residency at the Center for Photography at Woodstock has been jam packed with making work,  being surrounded by great people and thinking about photography 24/7.  It's been heaven! I shot a lot of film, used the 8x10 camera, had 24hr access to digital equipment/darkroom, went to lectures by Larry Fink, Angelika Rinnhofer, Keith Johnson, and David Hilliard but the best part was the technical and emotional support of everyone at CPW! I needed a lot of both :) and they were always there for me. 
So Ariel, Larry, Liz, Meghan, and Phil-THANK YOU for everything!  Also a special thanks to all the interns: Sarah, Emily, Bree, Amanda, Josephine and Kendra for their camaraderie, silliness, and their willingness to be photographed.
Thank You CPW!
