I can’t believe this photo is almost a year old now. This is a candid of my friend Clare laughing during a fun photo shoot day when she was about six months pregnant. Last April we were carrying a living room couch out on to the patio in Napa- now I’m missing her, her husband, and their baby after their recent move to the Pacific northwest.
I’m putting out a big Thank You to Beatriz Escobar, friend and photographer, who took my ‘self-portrait’ as part of her photo project, ‘To Be Seen’ last Fall. This is also a shout out about the body of work in general, which Beatriz describes as ‘play[ing] with the idea of self-portraiture, since the concept in itself has been changing so quickly.. I’m interested in exploring how women see themselves and how they wish to be seen now’ (you can check out the full description and photos at her website).
Here I got to release the shutter of the large format camera that she set up in my sun room in order to make this print. Thanks, Beatriz, for sharing it with me and the work publicly online!
I am so excited to announce that I’m kicking off 2015 with a big start by presenting my work to the public for the first time! Next week, I will be one of the photographers featured at Harvery Milk Photo Center’s monthly lecture series! After mustering up the guts to click ‘send’ on an initial email proposal and then months of scheduling and coordinating, I am now putting together my slideshow in order to share my project Dreamscapes within the photo community.
Here are the details:
When: Thursday, January 8th from 6:30-8pm
Where: Harvery Milk Photo Center @ Duboce Park, 50 Scott St.
This event is free and open to the public
Additionally, with the close of 2014 came the last sales of my first round of my handmade book, Dreamscapes! Thank you to those who took an interest in the book and invested in a copy! I’ve gone to work in my sunroom, printer, paper, thread, tape, etc. sprawled out around me, and produced a second set, available again at Needles & Pens. Dreamscapes is now for sale at their new location:
Where: Needles & Pens, 1173 Valencia St. b/w 22nd & 23rd St.
Open daily, 12-7pm
