Photographically exploring the theme of the right to roam, this beautiful 110-page journal includes an introduction by Inside the Outside co-founder Rob Hudson and work by 37 other contributors.
Inside the Outside is a UK-based landscape photography collective that mediates the liminal space between the world before us and within. Its core founding members are Al Brydon, Rob Hudson, Stephen Segasby, and Joseph Wright.
The solo exhibition of photographs from my Transitional landscapes series, which has been at Photolab since March 7, 2020, is closing this Friday, April 16, 2021. If you’re in the area and meant to see it, this is your chance.
Photolab is located at 2235 Fifth Street, Berkeley, CA (phone at 510-644-1400), and is open for kiosk (inside) and sidewalk (outside) pickup and drop-off. The Photolab Gallery is curated by Andrea McLaughlin and Irene Imfeld.
My photograph, “A memory of expansion/an expansion of memory,” from the series The Maybe Lakes, is included - with the work of many artists I admire - in the beautiful new book, Diffusion: Artfully Crafted Photography, volume X.
“It’s difficult for me to summarize the story of Diffusion’s 10-year journey. It’s been a long road and it feels like we’ve accomplished a lot. While other press houses publish more titles more frequently, Diffusion is (and always has been) more than a publication: Diffusion is a community. To date, we have successfully sponsored over 10 physical exhibitions and we have created online opportunities for artists to support and connect with each other. Stepping back, I can say that the annual itself has ultimately provided so much more for its readership.”

My image, The peace at the center/The center at peace, was selected as a winner of Black & White magazine’s 2021 smartphone photography contest.
Three of my photographs are included in the Somerville Toy Camera Festival, taking place entirely online this year.
The festival celebrates photographs made with “toy” cameras – low-tech cameras with no or very limited exposure control. It usually includes work selected by one juror and takes place across three physical spaces in Somerville, Massachusetts. This year, three jurors each created one exhibition, based on their own organizing principles. The result is a wonderful and diverse selection of “toy” camera photographs.
My photograph, Lifeline, from the series Transitional Landscapes, is included in the Nordström Gallery, selected by Cambridge, Massachusetts-based independent curator and historian of photographs Alison Nordström.
My photograph The communication of light/The light of communication, from the series The Maybe Lakes, is included in the Franson Gallery, selected by New England based fine art/documentary photographer and Adjunct Professor at Gordon College Bill Franson.
The exhibition runs from November 6, 2020 through January 3, 2021. Virtual receptions are scheduled for November 28 and December 19, 2020, both at 4:00 pm Central Time, on Facebook Live.
