Time in a Can exhibition in Madrid

Time in a Can is a remarkable photographic project. Artists on five continents used pinhole cameras to simultaneously make six-month exposures from the summer solstice through the winter solstice of 2011. This technique, called solargraphy, uses pinhole photography to record the apparent motion of the sun in the sky over a period of time.

Now, the Time in a Can project will be shown in Madrid! The exhibition will take place at the Fundacion Diario Madrid, Calle Larra 14, 28004 - Madrid, phone 91 594 48 21. It opens on Monday, June 24, with a reception at 8:00 p.m., and runs through July 30. A printed exhibition catalogue will also be available.

I'm excited that one of my solargraphs is included!

Unfortunately, I won't be able to be in Madrid for the opening, so if you go, please tell me all about it!

200 Yards @ Calumet

After it seemed as if 200 Yards had had its last exhibit, it's back! 200 Yards is a wonderful project - a series of exhibits of photos that are all made within 200 yards of the exhibition venue. You can read more about the project and watch a video that explains it here.
The newest 200 Yards exhibition will be at Calumet Photo, 2001 Bryant Street, San Francisco, CA, 415-643-9275, from Thursday afternoon, June 15 through July 8. The show includes 50 photographs by 21 artists. Calumet will host a Third Thursday reception on June 20, 2013, from 5:00-8:00 p.m.
I'm delighted to have three photos included in this exhibition!

I'm excited to see how 20 other artists photographed the same 200-yard radius.
