Resurfacing with AIPAD

April 1, 2012

I’ve been quiet. Quietly attending to my new born daughter, Siya. She is now 3 months old and we have all survived the insanity. It’s been special beyond words.

AIPAD was my first photo event of the year and I was very happy to see the works of the following three artists

George Georgiou who I have previously blogged about on Ishaara. I’ve always been a fan of his images and to see them in person made me incredibly happy. Here is an image from his series Fault Lines.

I also loved the prints of Robert Platt Lynes who’s works are currently on view at the Steven Kasher Gallery.

All three prints I saw on the wall were sold within the first couple days of AIPAD! No surprise there. Here is an image

for you. Also feel free to read Elizabeth Avedon’s words on his works.

And finally Elinor Caruchi’s prints were on view with Sasha Wolf Gallery. Elinor’s series Born looks particularly gorgeous in person. Here is one of my favorite images from the series.

Nudage

January 29, 2011

I was recently selected to travel to Santader, Spain for an art Exhibit/festival titled Espacio Nudage. You can find out more about the event and how I came to be selected here.

I just wanted so give a quick shout to the fabulous team and experiences I had with everyone I met in Spain. Here is an image from the streets of Santander. A full description on the highlights, artists and organizers I met there will follow very shortly. In the mean time I will leave you with this image that I took on my way out of the city.

Cheers to Feature Shoot and others!

January 3, 2011

I learned about the incredible Berlin photographer, Amira Fritz through feature shoot and re-blogged about her work on my blog last November. This is how I came to discover, read and respect feature shoot for over a year.

I have been told by Stella Kramer and a few others that Feature shoot would be a good platform for the style of my imagery. To my complete joy, my new series Anastasia was recently featured on feature shoot. A big thanks to Alison Zavos for starting my 2011 off with a bang. Alison is a Photographer, Photo-editor and Publisher, please take a look at her website as well. And check out Alion’s edit of my new work on feature shoot here.

Also Thanks to the following blogs for picking up a fun edit of my work. it’s been a great way to learn about some new blogs from all over the world!

Espacio Nudage – Spain

December 20, 2010

I am currently in Mumbai, India. This time I am here sooner than I expected to be and the weather is more than perfect! Mumbai for those of you who don’t know is the city I was born and raised in … all my updates from here on will be from India. I am scheduled to return to the states on Feb 12th in order to attend the closing of my solo show in Los Angeles. You can read more about it on this link. If you live in LA and read this blog, please stop in and say hello at Kopeikin Gallery.

So about a month ago I got an email from Mike Kent who was in charge of coordinating the photo entries for Espacio Nudage. I had never heard of this event before but I was invited to submit my work for the contemporary photography section. This is the first time this event is being held in the city of Santader, Spain. A gorgeous city with views of the mountains and bays and a incredible spanish history in addition! The event was being sponsored by the council of culture and tourism and I submitted my work and waited patiently while I browsed images of Santander Spain, it’s a gorgeous place, here are some images below to give you a sense of the landscape and some old Spanish architecture there.



I just heard back and was selected as one of ten photographers from several entries and was informed that I will be flown in and put up so I could attend the exhibition and see my work in a brand new country. I am humbled beyond words and am so glad to have gotten the opportunity. A shout out to Mike kent for being so easy to work with and I can hardly wait until I set foot on a totally different piece of the planet. I don’t speak spanish but hope to pick up a little bit while I am there. I will keep you posted about the show and other details!

100 Portraits 100 phtoographers; Fotoweek DC

November 8, 2010

Andy Adams, publisher of FlakPhoto recently teamed up with curator and Indie Photobook Library creator Larissa Leclair to create an exhibition at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington DC as part of FotoWeek DC 2010. They selected 100 portraits by 100 photographers who have been featured on Flak Photo, and the entire exhibition is available on his website. I was chosen to be in this line up and incredibly humbled by it. These images were projected on the Corcoran’s Museum building during Fotoweek DC. Below is an image of what the projection looked like. I have nothing but the kindest of words to say about Andy Adams. Please continue to support flakphoto, a regularly visited blog by me, by following it on twitter and facebook. Many thanks to Larissa Leclair as well, I hope I get to meet you both in person some day!

The 100 portraits exhibit got a lot of shouts from many places but in particular I would like to thank Julie Grahame of acurator the online magazine. Julie has so kindly blogged about me in the recent past as is great supporter of my work. Thanks Julie for your shout to my image out within the 100 Portraits exhibition selection!

News from the East & West

August 31, 2010

Humble apologies, my friends sometimes too much time goes by in between my posts. Between shooting some personal, some commercial work life takes over and well before you know it its been over a couple weeks!

I just wanted to say a big thanks to Nicole Pasulka who did a fantastic Interview of my work titled In the flow. A screen grab of the interview is below. Also I was just selected as a Critical Mass 2010 finalist. Critical Mass is a competition put on by Photolucida which is a contemporary photo organization is based in Portland, Oregon. Almost 600 entries this year pre screened by a hundred plus jurors lead to a finalist list of 175 which I was humbly included in. Those who continue on in the top 175 Finalists will have their work seen, and voted on, by over 200 jurors which will lead to a Top 50 list regarded as highly prestigious to be a part of. I am in the final round so wish me luck folks! At least 20 of these 175 people who got selected I personally know, love and think off highly! So it’s a stiff competition to say the least.

Also I was honored to be invited by Ann Pallesen, the all too charming Gallery Director of PCNW, (Photographic Centre North West) for PhotoLust which is a photography fun raiser auction with a fantastic line up of artists! Keith Carter, Matthew Pillsbury, Daniel Shea, Joni Sternbach and Jock Sturges are in the show to name a random few… here is a link to the list of all invited artists for this show. If you live in Seattle, show some love for for the contemporary photo scene on October 2nd which is also incidentally the birth date of the great Mahatma Gandhi. To buy tickets for this event click here. The Photolust auction will take place both silently and live, so please support!
