Tape Application Found in My Kid's Room



This shot above was supposed to be part of a big photographic sentence I was trying to put together, below:

But it works best, sorry to say without it, as a trio, below:

Or as a duo, below:

Photographer : Andrea Ellen Reed

I came across the work of photographer Andrea Ellen Reed when she was an MFA student at The Art Academy in SF in 2006. A month ago I came across her new work and loved it...I really just thought it could not be ignored. I searched her website for a statement, found little and then realized I think I liked it that way: strong work that speaks for itself. And there really is no way to mis-interpret it at this point.

The images here are from her series titled "Sweet Struggle". The entire series and some earlier projects can be seen on her website HERE.

Lawrenceburg, Indiana

I watched a show on TV with my Mom about painter Edward Hopper, and then went walking around downtown Lawrenceburg Indiana and made this photo. Kinda looks like Hopper meets Robert Frank or something.

Gallery Hopper Deconstructs

Had enuff of these gun pics yet?
I was happily surprised to see NYC's Gallery Hopper inexplicably decide to deconstruct a portrait of mine they stumbled upon while leafing thru the week's magazines . This shot inspired the essay "The Power Of Context", written by Todd Walker. Read his insightful take on what may or may not have lead to the creation of this curious photograph HERE.

The New Pornography: Core Memory

Wires that look like circulatory systems and plastic cases that resemble primative man. Knots of electronics that form a brain. The only way I can describe it is by calling it The New Pornography: fetish-istic visuals catering to the tastes of Silicon Valley computer geeks. Based on a quick look at the book's Amazon sales ranking, it seems the rest of America has a hunger for these images as well. The book is selling like crazy...

Haunting and oddly anthropomorphic photographs of the wires, knobs, switches and hearts and souls of the computer. There is a quiet tone to these images, like we are witnessing a form of silent modern history. The book is called CORE MEMORY by photographer Mark Richards and it is having an opening exhibition on Monday, June 4th at The Computer History Museum in Palo Alto, CA. Book signing starts @ 6:00 pm.

See a preview of the book and the exhibition HERE.
