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 fire images, about which I'll blog again tomorrow. 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 some 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 of the black and white shot 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.
