While yesterday was an ode to last year, today it to looking forwards. I discovered these amazing artists through the Humble online exhibition – curated by Nathaniel Ward. I am delighted to be part of this group and whilst I only show three artists, there are may more to discover.
I took these images just before christmas while we were camping. At the moment I wish I had that time again. Its funny I hear from so many people how happy they are that last year is finally over. I think I must have been the only one who had so much fun last year (yes very empty pockets due to a slow studio, but plenty of time) so I feel kind of nostalgic about it. I had so much time and freedom to dream, create and start new projects, that I find it rather hard at the moment to keep all of that going while my design business is running at high speed again.
I always adore a good title and “Little wolf: let’s make some memories” sums up this great work by Steven Beckly. He lives and works in Toronto, Canada, believes there is a beauty in everyday moments that normally go unnoticed, doesn’t like chocolate, but loves Oreos and wishes he had a pet wolf.
The other day Patrick Millard got in touch to share some images from his work “Formatting Gaia – Stage II”. This was a tricky one and to be honest I wasn’t sure if I would show his work. While his selection stuck in my mind, it also made me feel a bit uncomfortable. Nothing wrong with feeling that way, at least the images got a straight response. I felt much more comfortable exchanging a few images and therefore altering the reading of the series for myself. I always feel kind of naughty when I catch myself exchanging submitted images, but we all “read” images/stories in a different way. This is my preferred selection form this body of work.
How stunning are these “Bedroom still lifes” by Kelly Neal? Simple, playful and vibrant.
Today I read Elizabeth Avedon blog and came across another couple of benefit sales. One is the Haiti Relief – Benefit Sale and another is the Wall Space Gallery. How often do you get a great print for $50 and help/donate at the same time?
Its ironic while I found these emerging artists getting funds together to help, over at A Photo Editor I came across this article on how much money commercial photographers make.
