The View From Here at Don't Take Pictures online

My untitled photograph is included in the online exhibition, The View From Here, published in the online magazine Don’t Take Pictures.
The exhibition, on view from May 20 through August 18, 2020, “presents photographers’ views of where they are and where they wish they were.”
The magazine’s title, Don’t Take Pictures,
references the language of modern photography. Over the years, the term “taking pictures” has begun to be replaced with “making photographs.” The change signifies a distinction between the widespread use of cameras in the modern world and the more systematic, thoughtful process of creating photographic art. At Don’t Take Pictures, we strive to celebrate the creativity involved with the making of photographs.

Imagined Destinations: Reframing the Familiar - EBPCO online exhibition

My untitled photograph is included in the East Bay Photo Collective’s first online exhibition, Imagined Destinations: Reframing the Familiar. The exhibition is online here.
Travel often reveals new viewpoints from which to experience and rethink our day-to-day lives. In a time when travel and vacation are far-off luxuries, how do we locate the unfamiliar around us and appreciate our immediate surroundings in novel ways?
In the words of French philosopher Gaston Bachelard in The Poetics of Space,
...the places in which we have experienced daydreaming reconstitute themselves in a new daydream, and it is because our memories of former dwelling-places are relived as daydreams that these dwelling-places of the past remain in us all the time.
The photographs in this exhibition explore imagined travel, locations that remind us of places where we have journeyed, and new perspectives on where we live.
There will be an online opening reception via Zoom this Saturday, May 9, from 5:00 - 7:30 p.m. - details are here.
The exhibition was juried by Beatrice Thornton, an Oakland, CA-based archivist, historian, and digital asset manager and EBPCO’s Exhibitions Coordinator. She holds an M.A. from the Bard Graduate Center in the History of Design, Decorative Arts, and Material Culture, and an Advanced Certificate in Archives and Records Management from Long Island University’s Palmer School of Library Science.

The Imperfect Lens at A Smith Gallery

My photograph, I could never have dreamed you, is included in the The Imperfect Lens exhibition at A Smith Gallery. 

The exhibition includes photographs made with toy cameras, pinhole cameras, and cameras with homemade lenses. “Plastic and homemade lenses along with pinholes eschew perfection -- like drawing with the charred end of a log or singing opera to the accompaniment of ukuleles. The drawing can be exceptional and the music sublime, unexpected.  Removing the technical and using simplistic tools allows the image maker to focus on what is in front of them to achieve their creative vision.”
The exhibition runs from March 13 through May 10, 2020. With the gallery closed during the coronavirus pandemic, the reception originally scheduled for Saturday, March 28 is being replaced by a Facebook Live gallery walk and talk at 4:00 Central Standard Time.
A Smith Gallery is located at 103 North Nugent Avenue, Johnson City, TX.
The juror for The Imperfect Lens was fine art and commercial photographer, independent curator and juror, and photography writer Michael Kirchoff, who is also Editor in Chief at Analog Forever Magazine and Founding Editor at Catalyst: Interviews.
