Fall is my favorite season. I don’t think it was always that way. I wasn’t thrilled to go back to school or to rake the piles upon piles of leaves the maple trees strew across my family’s lawn when I was growing up. But as an adult, it’s ideal. The tourists are largely gone. It’s easy to find a place to be alone with nothing but the sound of rustling leaves underfoot. The light is golden yet subdued. The dark browns, deep reds and glowing yellows send me into color-driven creative frenzies. Something about spent vegetation is very appealing to me; it has more character, like a well-used pie tin. Here are some of my favorite shots from the past two months. Enjoy!
For those of you who missed the opening at the University of New England Gallery of Art last night, well, you really missed out! It was a great turn out and the collection of images is superb. Hats off to Steve Halpert for curating a great show. There is still plenty of time to see the show, however. It is up until June 7th. My six pinhole images are in the exhibit and in case you haven’t already heard, they are now officially represented by VoxPhotographs. This is a very exciting development as I’m thrilled to have Heather Frederick’s considerable enthusiasm and stamina behind the effort to get these images into the public eye. If you’re interested in purchasing any (hint, hint), check them out at UNE and/or contact Heather directly.
I’m currently scanning loads of color film images from my California trip and hope to post my favorites in the next few days. Check back in soon!
