I’m fortunate to have had a number of opportunities to exhibit my photos so far this year; in NYC, on Long Island, and elsewhere nationally. It’s fantastic to see firsthand reactions to photos that I’ve taken, and it’s an incredibly emotional and gratifying experience to hear how my work has resonated with someone. In addition to participating in a number of larger group shows, I was proud and thrilled to exhibit over 25 of my photos in a four-person show in June that I organized with three friends at Ashawagh Hall in Springs, East Hampton. However, as much as I love to show my photos and participate in exhibits, it has resulted in less time spent getting out with my camera and shooting. And I really miss it.
So I’m back. I’m back to happily indulging in hours of taking and making images, rather than just taking occasional snaps. This past weekend and again yesterday I went to Montauk to explore the marinas to expand on my series of square, abstract photos of boat hulls. I love capturing the beauty of the weathered texture of the surface of the hull as it interplays with the geometric character of the structure of the vessel. I’m excited about what I’ve caught so far, and eager to share the finished images. Above is one of the new photos, Reeltime. I'm drawn to the curves, texture, and lines as well as the lush blues of this one.
The first of my boat hull images is currently on exhibit in the East End Photographers Group (EEPG) show, Summer Waters, at the Water Mill Museum in Water Mill, NY in the Hamptons. I’m thrilled that Hamptons Art Hub featured my photo on their website the week that the show opened. The EEPG exhibition remains on view through August 10 at 41 Old Mill Road, Water Mill, NY 11976. Stop by.
Thanks for your interest in my photography and, as always, please contact me with any comments or questions.
