Behind Photographs show at Farmani Gallery
My 10 days in NY were a blur. A partial show of my photographer portraits opened at Farmani Gallery in Brooklyn. Elizabeth, Hossein and the Lucie Crew did an incredible job of getting the word out, thanks for your efforts and packing the house! The show featured 20x24 Polaroids of the Lucie Lifetime Award winners from my project and a wall of 8x10 images of the other photographers documented to date. I also took the 20x24 Polaroid Camera to Javits for the Photo Plus Expo and managed to shoot another 19 photographers for my Behind Photographs project. Mark Seliger, James Nachtwey, Michael Halsband, Bob Gruen, Joyce Tennison and Art Streiber were just a few who took the time to share their time and images. I will have their portraits up on my site in the next few weeks. Thanks to everyone that came out to Dumbo and Javits, your support and enthusiasm is appreciated.

Here are a few pics from the opening at Brooks Institute. I was able to hang over 80 images from my project. Since the show will be up for two months, I plan on swapping out some of the images at the first of September. This will give me the opportunity to share all of the images to date. Special thanks to everyone that came to the opening and to Brooks for hosting a great evening.
I've been in Santa Barbara the past few days hanging prints for a show at Brooks Institute's Gallery 27. This is a partial show of my Behind Photographs Project. There are 40+ 20x24 Polaroids in the show and 40+ 11x14 prints. It is great to be back in Santa Barbara and very fulfilling to have this show at Brooks. Hard to believe it has been 18 years since I graduated! The opening is tomorrow night 8/6/09 from 5-8, please drop in if you are in town.
