I’m very pleased to announce I’ll be exhibiting at the New Orleans Photo Alliance Gallery next month. I was selected to be one of 18 photographers from around the world to be in their “Desire” show which opens on February 7th and runs through March 21st.
From the NOPA website:
“Desire is an eager wish to possess or enjoy. Its objects range from the pious to the sensuous to the mundane. Desire is, by its nature, unsustainable. Desire is fleeting, but images last forever. This exhibit encourages photographers to interpret, question or celebrate the myriad aspects of desire.”
The show was selected by Japanese artist Mayumi Lake.
“Mayumi Lake’s artwork deals with the interaction between the real and imaginary. Using various media and autobiographical elements, she has been exploring issues of sexual identity and desire. As a Japanese woman who has been culturally conditioned to contain rather then reveal, she is interested in uncovering her own identity by aggressively evoking emotional reactions from her viewers.”
I’ll be exhibiting images from my Black Pond Series for the first time in a gallery setting.
It’s tremendously exciting to be showing outside of Chicago. I’m looking forward to returning to one of my favorite US cities and being a part of the rich artistic culture there.
And it certainly won’t hurt to spend some time in New Orleans in the middle of winter. Feel free to join me!
