Three Exhibitions, Three Continents

This is really amazing. It's like one those heavenly events where a comet passes by earth and you can see it. But it only happens every 1000 years. I've got one of those comet shows going on right now. 

I'm in THREE SHOWS: Loft Photo in Brussels, Belgium, Loft 49 in Hangzhou, China, and UNC Mariana Gallery in Greeley, Colorado. Three Shows: Three Continents! Will it ever happen again??? 

 

These are from the Hangzhou, China show. You can see my diptych of "The Crucified Fisherman" in the show. Very nice exhibition! They all are!! Thank you to everyone that's supported all of this! I greatly appreciate it!!

China Day 6 - November 30

Today we opened the Collodion Collective in China. The ceremony was held at the China Art Academy. The academy has 10,000 students, one of the best in China. It was an elaborate ceremony, too. There were hundreds in attendance.

After the ceremony there was a public round table discussion about wet collodion both historically and in the contemporary context.

Tomorrow is my keynote speech - I'm slotted for two hours. I'm excited to tell the Chinese my story.

China Day 4 - November 28 2014

Greetings from the east! We are in the last day of the workshop and working hard to make plates for the exhibition in two days at the academy of art in Hangzhou.
It's been a wonderful workshop and every afternoon we are out poking around the old city. Amazing. All I want to do is make photographs. I can't say enough about how wonderful this place is to Western eyes.

China Day 2 - November 26,2014

We walked around the old part of Hangzhou today. Words fail me. The photos do some justice but can't come close to the experience.
We are supposed to go back today with a wet collodion camera so I can make some portraits there - exiting!!!
