Portraits That Are New and American


Austin, TX 2007
Up in the friendly skies on my way to NY for the opening of the New American Portrait, a group show curated by Jen Bekman and Joerg Colberg (of the wonderful Conscientious blog) which features a completely surreal and amazing line up. I can’t quite wrap my head around being in a show with some of these peeps.
I’ve been in hibernation mode as of late, well not entirely but editing, scanning, printing, photographing and fine tuning a book dummy for the Thrift pictures. It’s never easy and my bad habit of having to revisit every contact sheet and image shot in the last 3 years doesn’t help. All in all I’m feeling good about it before I plan the next round of trips to photograph down south.
In the meantime I’ll be wandering in and out of galleries, museums and book stores in NY with bagel in hand. Hope to see you there.

Participating artists:
Christine Collins
Jen Davis
Ben Donaldson
Amy Elkins
Peter Haakon Thompson
Todd Hido
Alec Soth
Brian Ulrich
Shen Wei

Opening Friday June 22nd from 6 – 8pm

    See you on Friday, Brian. By the way, I enjoyed the list of things consumed during the creation of the shipping package – hah.
