John-Mark Schlink's prints to the right.

Krista Walsh's mixed media pieces to the left.

Photos from the Exhibition Opening at Hamline

A few days before the opening reception, I saw the show for the first time and Instagrammed this photo:

"The show's up! Opening reception (with free food and free booze) is Thursday,
4:30-7:30 in the Drew Fine Arts Center at Hamline University. Stop by and say hi!"

Here are a few iPhone shots from the opening last Thursday:

A group of students I caught looking at my work. And then I was caught by one of them.

Another photo from Instagram: "Decent turn out at the show opening at Hamline."

The show's up for a few more weeks. Stop by and check it out.

Has Photoshop Gone Too Far?...

This isn't what you think. It's worth a watch:

Amazing. Personally, I don't think Photoshop has gone far enough. I need a burrito.

Framing an Image

To quote out of context is the essence of the photographer's craft. His central problem is a simple one: what shall he include, what shall he reject? The line of decision between in and out is the picture's edge. While the draughtsman starts with the middle of the sheet, the photographer starts with the frame.

The photograph's edge defines content.

It isolates unexpected juxtapositions. By surrounding two facts, it creates a relationship.

The edge of the photograph dissects familiar forms, and shows their unfamiliar fragment.

It creates the shapes that surround objects.

The photographer edits the meanings and patterns of the world through an imaginary frame. This frame is the beginning of his picture's geometry. It is to the photograph as the cushion is to the billiard table.
- John Szarkowski's words to open the chapter titled "The Frame" in "The Photographer's Eye."
(This was the catalog for an exhibition at the MoMA in 1964.)
