If you’re in New York City for AIPAD in April, stop by the Verve Gallery booth as they’ll be showing a selection of prints from my new, and ongoing, series Otherworld. With the NASA Kepler Mission in mind, these small (7″ x 7″) gelatin silver prints imagine what other Earth-like planets might look like.
“The Kepler Mission, NASA Discovery mission #10, is specifically designed to survey a portion of our region of the Milky Way galaxy to discover dozens of Earth-size planets in or near the habitable zone and determine how many of the billions of stars in our galaxy have such planets.” — NASA
THE CENTER FOR FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHY
I am pleased to have had a print accepted into the 2016 Landscape show at The Center for Fine Art Photography in Fort Collins, CO by juror Natasha Egan, the Executive Director at The Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago. Both these organisations do a fantastic job at promoting photographers and photography.
CALL FOR ENTRIES — INPrint
For many of us it’s all about the print, or a tangible version of the image, being the final destination rather than just being seen online. Irving Penn was purported to have once said, “The print’s the thing,” and the INPrint call for entries by Rfotofolio recognises this. The deadline is March 22nd and the juror is Catherine Couturier. Full details are here with the entry fee going towards a worthwhile cause.
The INPrint call for entry puts the focus on the final product of the artist vision, the photographic print or object, not the jpeg on the screen. Rfotofolio wants to encourage and promote the art of making the photographic print.
This call for entries will be judged not only on the image, but by the craft, skill, and quality of presentation.
All media are welcome, including but not limited to traditional film, digital, collage, three-dimensional, encaustic, small books, and alternative processes. When you participate in our call for entry you are helping in growing the Rfotofolio Grant.
I really enjoyed doing the last special print offer but it’s been a while, so it’s high time for another.
Prints will be shipped via USPS, insured etc. and well packaged. I want you to be as happy with the print as I am, so if for any reason you aren’t satisfied, return the print for a full refund (less shipping).
