No Dust Here

Finally -- the details on the upcoming art show I've been talking about/working on.

The show is titled No Dust Here -- "50 artists interpret the cover art of discarded record albums, from such performers as Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass, Frank Sinatra, the Everett High School Marching Band, and many more."

There was a stack of old albums/album covers to choose from, and the selection process was done in such a way that no one really knows what album/s the other people selected.
The albums I selected were:

Boston Pops Picnic

and Ode to Billie Joe

If you're curious to see my responses to these covers -- and you're gonna be in Portland, OR during the month of August -- swing by the Basil Hayward gallery, on the third floor of Powell's City of Books.
The show opens on First Thursday, August 4th, and runs throughout the month.

Picnic photo shoot / second section

Picnic photo shoot / first section

Last weekend, I gathered some friends together for a small, light photo shoot at Mt Tabor park. Some of the results will be used as part of a group show I'll be taking part in next month. I'll post that side of the shoot in a few weeks; for now, here are some shots from the other rolls of film I filled up during the afternoon.

warm ups, pt. 2

warm ups

I recently photographed a friend of mine in various parks throughout out Portland, acting as a bit of a warm up for a larger photography project (to be discussed later).
