Recent honors, plus a joke

It’s awards season in the photography world, when we all congratulate each other on our fine work and resent those who won awards that should have been ours. Reminds me of a (not very funny) joke:

Q: How many photographers does it take to screw in a lightbulb?
A: Five. One to screw it in. Four to stand around and say, “I could have done that.”

I’m proud to say that some of last year’s work has won awards:

American Photography 29: Three images (here, here and here) — including two from my Night Cars series — were chosen to be part of the permanent American Photography archive online. Out of 9,000 images submitted, only 185 received this honor.

2013 Applied Arts Photography & Illustration Awards:  My Lost Boat image (see the website and blog) is a winner in the self-promotion category.  Appearing soon in the May/June 2013 Photography & Illustration Awards issue.

2012 One Eyeland Photography Awards: The Lost Boat image won a silver medal in the self-promotion category. Plus you get this snazzy certificate:

Digging the Urban Archaeology

About 150 people turned out to see my Urban Archaeology exhibition last Saturday. It was a crazy evening topping off a crazy week, and I didn’t shoot a single photo of the opening. Got some crappy iPhone photos from my awesome brother, who had the presence of mind to think that someone should document this. That’s me, in the grey shirt in the middle, probably talking about the perils of shooting long exposures in residential neighborhoods at night (security guards, police, dog poo, rain).

Get out those credit cards, people.

Note for future shows: Place the cocktail bar inside the gallery rather than out back; it’s where everyone hangs out.

Thanks to the brilliant people at  New Theme gallery for making it a success. Complete image catalog in the next blog post.
