I’m happy to announce that one of my photos has been selected for the San Francisco APA Something Personal Exhibition.
Last years exhibition was a hoot – there were about fifteen hundred people there, which is a huge turnout. It was a great party and I hope that this year is as good.
New this year is the follow-on show at 645 Gallery. I’m eager to see how that turns out.
I submitted three of these fire images, about which I’ll blog again tomorrow.
This is the big winner. It certainly has charm, but I don’t know why it was preferred over the others. Of course, I don’t really know what to do with this flames on white work yet – it’s mostly been a technical exercise thus far, and I haven’t given much thought to purpose or message.
Entering these into a “personal” work contest is a bit of a stretch. It’s “personal” in that nobody paid me to do it, but it’s hard to say that this is some sort of exploration of my inner life. Although I do love shoes.
The aesthetic here certainly fits more with the “personal” work idea. I don’t think these photos make much a statement, however. They’re from a Propville Dog & Pony Show, which was fun.
As always, I’m happy to be in with the in crowd. I’m thinking maybe I’ll wear a cape this year.
