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.

News from the East & West

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.

“This series of work is an homage to the long standing tradition of the open road. The ability to drive in any direction, or no direction at all. To tap into an artery that connects everybody to each other. To wake up in Arkansas and fall asleep in Santa Fe.”

Simon’s show opens at 6 pm tonight amidst the NYPH festivities so please join me in celebrating his work if you can! You can find out more about his life and this crazy road trip by following his blog
