Photos on Display

I was recently invited by Kristen Ellsworth-Wing to contribute some of my photos to the staging of a new home in Edgartown.  It offered a rare opportunity to see some of my images in an actual living situation and to get some unsolicited response to my work.

Philbin Beach – Aquinnah ’18 (off season)

Philbin Beach again, for scale

I haven’t actually heard back from anyone about the pictures. I’m satisfied at any rate, I think they look great.

photographs installed at Attune Health in Beverly Hills

Dr. Swamy Venuturupalli invited me to install a range of images from my book, “Morning Light” in his newly opened clinic on Wilshire and Robertson in Beverly Hills. 

A fantastic opportunity to see this series in print and in a completely different environment.

We also chose to place several images from my recent experiments/sketches in reflected modules, “Mirror Series”.

A bold decision on Dr. Swamy’s part since we don’t know where this inquiry will lead. 

For the most part we’re happy with the work in the space. Only time will tell.

moving days

moving. again. 

it’s been a pattern of life for me, as much as I seek to reform.

I should take as my emblem a hermit crab, reclusive yet restless, adapting to change through assimilation. 

in times like these I’m exposed and vulnerable. maybe tomorrow I’ll be safe, this is my faith.
