During the past year, I’ve been participating in an international project called Art on Science: 26 études. Artists in Boston and Strasbourg met with local scientists to consider their respective ways of seeing and understanding the world. I’ve had a chance to talk with Professor Mriganka Sur of MIT about how the human brain processes visual information.
Our collective results include a portfolio of art, with commentary by the scientists, to be displayed in exhibits in both cities.The Boston exhibit will open with a reception on Friday evening, September 20, 2019, at 6:30 pm at the French Cultural Center in Boston (free but reservations required). The show will be up through November 8 and will be shown in Strasbourg in the Spring of 2020.
Three galleries, over 125 photographs and a slew of fun events—that’s the 2018 Toy Camera Festival in Somerville, Massachusetts. There will be lots of interesting and creative work, cranked out the old-school way with film and the simplest of cameras. I’m very pleased that juror Jennifer Shaw selected two of my pieces, which will be hanging at the Brickbottom Gallery from September 6 through October 13. Hope to see you at the opening reception on Saturday, September 8, 5-7 pm.
The Summer 2018 show at the Curated Fridge in Somerville, Massachusetts, will be traveling to Napa, California, for the month of September. This little bit of the Martha’s Vineyard Camp Meeting Association, shot on film with a Holga 120N, will be one of the 60+ photographs making the trans-continental journey.
This winter, I’m happy to fit snugly in the company of about 50 other photographers on the refrigerator of Yorgos Efthymiadis in Somerville, Massachusetts. His ongoing project, The Curated Fridge, celebrates photography through quarterly shows curated by local gallerists, teachers and writers. Check out all the images in the Winter 2018 show online.
I’m very pleased that one of my images shot several years ago with a handmade lensless camera has been included in a new collection of pinhole photography from all over the world. The ƒ/D Book of Pinhole contains nearly 100 images, color and black & white, that display the range of techniques and effects available from the simplest of cameras.
Started 20 years ago with a group of artists meeting in a series of living rooms, plotting an open studios walk through the neighborhood of North Cambridge, Massachusetts….now reminiscing, sharing art and stories, at a Twentieth Anniversary Celebration, 1 – 4 pm on Sunday, March 26, 2017.
