As long as I’m still enjoying my grainy black and white images, I should probably just continue.
I created the image above during a recent trip to Wilmington (North Carolina). This mannequin was placed in the downtown area, in front of a store with all kinds of quirky little knickknacks and just general “junk”. Just don’t ask me why She was wearing this mask, but to me it made for a fun portrait photograph.
Two weeks ago my wife and I went to the 12th Annual Kiln Opening at Luck’s Ware, which is were I created this (for me) traditional still life image:
The visit to this Sid Luck’s pottery is almost a family tradition for us, since we have been at every of his kiln openings since we moved to Durham (North Carolina) three years ago.
Sid Luck is a fifth generation potter, and runs the traditional wheel-thrown pottery business together with his two sons. The Kiln Opening is always a delightful event, with home-cooked food and a bluegrass band. When we visited his pottery for the first time we almost felt as if we are crashing a family party, everybody is just so incredibly approachable!
Every year the NAP (National Arts Program Foundation) is organizing an exhibit at Duke University, showing art created by employees of Duke University and Duke Medical Center.
This year, like last year, one of my images was select to be included in the exhibit.
The selected photograph is titled “Bee Life“, and was chosen as one of the honorable mentions in the corresponding awards show.
My image is on exhibit until October (Friday, October-1 to be exact) in the Louise Jones Brown Gallery, located in the Bryan Center of Duke University in Durham.
