New Work

I've finally scanned a few negatives that I made a few weeks ago. As always, here are some that have potential (these were all shot in the house, which is something new for this project):

“Dad's Stereo”


“The Back Porch Closet”

“The Basement Sink”

“The Canning Shelves”

“Holding The Freezer Shut”

Work at Fallon’s HQ

I was recently contacted by an art buyer from Fallon (world renowned design firm - among other things, they produced the famous “Cat Herding” Super Bowl commercial a few years ago). Their art buyer wanted to hang 2 of my pieces at Fallon’s headquarters in downtown Minneapolis (Fallon also has offices in London, Singapore, and Tokyo). I went downtown this morning to drop off the pieces.

Here they are outside of my car, ready to be delivered (I’m such a geek for taking a photo of this, I know). The smaller image is framed 18x22, and the larger image is framed 23x28:

I call this image “Two Photos and Wheel-Well Rust.”

I headed up to the 24th floor and dropped of the work. Then I took a minute to enjoy the view. Here are the fall colors in the distance from 24 stories up:

Out another window was the Foshay Tower:

After taking in the views, I thanked the woman who helped me at Fallon, and took a minute to walk along the farmers market down Nicollet Ave:

New images shortly. I promise...

Random New Developments

I’ve been BUSY. Here are some thing going on right now:

Yesterday, I just sent some work off to the Silver Eye Center For Photography in Pittsburgh, PA. I’m going to be featured in a 2-person show in their “New Works Gallery.” (I’ll also be featured on their online gallery too, and I’ll post that link when it’s up.) The show will be up from mid-October through mid-November. Here’s some matted work in my studio that I was getting ready to box up:

All of these prints are (about) 15” x 18”, and their matted size is 20” x 24”.

Today, I finally had some time to get caught up on some contact sheets. I had 3 “outings” to make photos in the past month, and I hadn’t had a chance to make contact sheets of any of those rolls. So I made 22 contact sheets at CVA this morning/afternoon:

I’ll scan some negs of some promising images shortly. Come on back for those.

Finally, WHAT’S GOING ON IN THE PHOTO WORLD IN THE TWIN CITIES?? This is what I'm talking about:

- In July, the Minnesota Center for Photography closed its doors for good. Our biggest and best “photo-only gallery” in the Cities is no more.

- About 2 months ago, ProColor stopped processing film. I can’t go visit Dan anymore! Procolor was my place!

- Digi-Graphics still processes film, but only 3 days a week!

- I swung into the National Camera in Roseville a few weeks ago, and I learned that they stopped processing film at that location. It would take 10 days to get my processed film back. Today, I stopped there for some 8x10 color paper for contact sheets, but they don’t carry color paper anymore. So I figured I’d get a few Kodak Pro-Packs (film), but THEY WERE OUT! Why bother being a “photo store” anymore?
