Society for Photographic Education - New Orleans 2015

It was a great experience attending the Society for Photographic Education conference this year held in New Orleans. I never would have imagined winning two awards/scholarships for the two projects titled “The Mountain Stands Still” and “Waking the Land” - regional and national. I had a last minute idea to make a mock up of a handmade book and little accordion style books to match for the reviewers and received some great ideas and inspiration from other artists I met. That was the highlight of the whole trip… meeting other artists and becoming a fan of others work, in which I am continually inspired and beyond grateful for such an amazing experience. A huge thank you to all of the staff and people that make this conference happen annually. Can’t wait until next year.

Looking At Appalachia

I am pleased to announce that I am now an official contributor of the Looking at Appalachia project. This online archive is put together by Roger May, and attempts to explore the diversity of Appalachia today through photographs fifty years after the War on Poverty. It features ninety two photographers from thirteen states in the region who have submitted photographs over the course of a year, with the project still ongoing into 2015. 

It was featured in National Geographic’s blog PROOF and will travel as a print exhibition beginning this year. The Inaugural Looking at Appalachia Exhibition will take place at the Spartanburg County
Public Libraries Headquarters, 151 South Church Street, Spartanburg,
South Carolina.

Landscape Juried Annual Exhibition on Plates to Pixels

The Landscape Juried Annual Exhibition is now live! A huge thanks to curator and photo educator and photographer, Chris Bennett for being the juror of this wonderful online exhibition. It is a pleasure to be in this show. I am blown away by the amazing work and artists who also submitted and have quickly become a fan of many photographs that embody the sublime-mysterious landscape. I would like to also thank Blue Mitchell for putting together the opportunity to have this online exhibition made possible through his site, Plates to Pixels.
