City Art

My project, The Mountain Stands Still, is currently on display in a group exhibition at City Art Gallery in Columbia, South Carolina. It will be up until April 13th. The show features six pieces, a handmade accordion book and a table made from a tree from the land that the project was photographed on and by the man that it is centered around.

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.
