the home stretch

well, my solo show opens up on friday evening, so i guess this is the home stretch!

i still have a decent amount of work to do, but i'm armed with glue, some great pieces of salvaged plywood, and the biggest stack of polaroids i have ever seen in one plce!

i spent some downtime today with my copy of Walker Evans' 'Polaroids' book- a posthumous collection of works that he created in the very last year of his creative career. i hadn't picked up the book in a long time, and it was really fascinating to see the similarities between his work and my own. all of these images- 2,650 of them- we taken when the SX-70 camera was just a couple of years old. his subject matter wasn't "new" or "daring" - but he found ways to highlight the mundane and really make it exciting. if you've never had the chance to see Walker Evans' work, do try to find it.

polaroid art show

here's a digital version of the flier for the show. i picked up a stack of postcards, today, and they look great. had i had more time to think, lately, i would have made up some postcards with more of my images, on them. no time for that, now, but it's definitely something that will happen as part of a larger project for postmarks, my long-distance Polaroid exchange project that i've been a part of since 2002.

well, back to my Polaroids and glue. for now, i'll leave you with a little joy.

upcoming art exhibition

at the end of this month, i'll be showing my photographs - mostly polaroids - at *doe* boutique in san francisco. there isn't a date set for the opening reception, yet, so stay tuned for more information about that.

in preparation for the show, i've been going out and taking a ton of polaroids. it's really nice to step away from work for a while and remember that i live in a really wonderful and amazingly photogenic part of the world.

hike in the woods

i snapped this shot while hiking through the woods in Mill Valley, a few weeks back.


this photo was taken in yountville, also a few weeks ago.

through the rest of the month, i'll be sharing some more of the images that will be on display at *doe*. but first, i need to spend some quality time with my scanner!
