New Yorkers: hit me up!


Face to Face

Eight of my prints are currently on exhibit at the William D. Cannon Art Gallery in Carlsbad, CA. Face to Face: The Changing Face of Portraiture examines how 17 contemporary artists approach portraiture - whether friend, stranger, loved one or self - by exploring nuances of face, figure, and personality in a variety of styles and approaches. The show closes on May 27th.

Featuring work by: James Aitchison • Shay Bredimus • Melissa Cooke • Marianela de la Hoz • Brian Dick • Jorg Dubin • Ron Juncal • Perin Mahler • America Martin • Bob Orso • Sonia Paulino • Linda Saphan • Brooke Shaden • Neil Shigley • Mike Stilkey • Bill Vuksanovich • Vicki Walsh

Got Props and a Fundraiser

I recently received an Honorable Mention for The Robert Cornelius Award. This competition was held by The Worldwide Photography Gala Awards, and was juried by Stephen Perloff, Founder and Publisher of The Photo Review. Here's the press announcement.

Also, I'll have a print of "Yarehk and Dinka" at 1650 Gallery in Echo Park. You can view images selected for the exhibit and find details about the show here. Many of the photographs will be up for auction, with procedes benefiting Dogs Without Borders.
