Contemporary South 2015

The Contemporary South show begins tonight at the Visual Art Exchange Gallery located in downtown Raleigh, North Carolina. This exhibition showcases a survey of artwork currently being made in the regional south, across a wide range of media and aesthetic and I am honored to be a part of such a show alongside such inspirational work by southern artists. A huge thanks to Chad Alligood, an acclaimed curator of Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art for taking the time to jury this wonderful exhibition.

Photographing Strangers

I had the opportunity to spend some time at the Light Factory in Charlotte, NC in the earlier part of October. This was my first time visiting their new location and the gallery and space they have is just wonderful. I also had the great pleasure to meet and learn from the talented Richard Renaldi, who is best known for his series “Touching Strangers” which was being exhibited in the gallery at the time. Here are a few photographs from photographing strangers in the downtown area of Charlotte, North Carolina.

A Visit to Miguel

Yesterday I had the pleasure of giving Miguel a framed print of a photograph I took of him earlier this year. Miguel is a hired hand who moved from Puebla, Mexico 2yrs ago and found work on the Sharp Farm here in SC … When I told him this photo was hanging in the Institute of Southern Studies at USC, he almost didn’t believe me! He was so thrilled when I gave this to him that he couldn’t stop smiling. I think I made his day to say the least!
