Selected for the APA Something Personal Exhibition

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.
