Judy Sherrod and I are collaborating on a series titled, Nocturnes. This is our blog.
We have had tremendous success with this series which we started a little over a year ago.
Our collaboration has yielded publication in South by Southeast magazine, Lenscratch, and will be included in the next edition of Christopher James, The Book of Alternative Photographic Processes. Exhibitions include: Alternative Processes at the Center for Fine Art Photography in Ft Collins where we were awarded Both Director’s and Juror’s Honorable Mention, Finalist in Critical Mass, Beheld at Homespace Gallery, Call and Response at New Orleans Photo Alliance Gallery, Center Forward, V at Homespace, Currents 2012 at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, After - Light at Powell's and many more. Over the course of a year we have shot 49, twenty by twenty inch pinhole tintypes of the gulf. We will be attending the PhotoNola and the Fotofest Reviews. We will be exhibiting Nocturnes at the SRO Photo Gallery in Lubbock, Texas in January.
With more to come, keep watching!
