Center for Photographic Arts

I'm pleased to say that the Center for Photographic Arts (CPA) has accepted the four images below for their 2013 Juried Exhibition. The jurors this year were Chris Johnson, Professor of Photography for California College of Arts and Dean Brierly, currently an Editor of B&W magazine.

The first two images 3532 Passing Ship and Inga will be on display at CPA's gallery from January 12th to March 1. Inga was also chosen for SFCamerawork's member show earlier this year. The juror for that show was Lisa Sutcliffe, assistant curator of photography at SFMOMA. The other two images chosen by CPA will be shown in their web gallery only.

3532 Passing Ship is from a new series I started shooting while at Esalen this past month. All the photos are long exposures under moonlight. They continue the conceptual theme of my horizon series by showing an unexpectedly beautiful man-made presence in an otherwise natural landscape. The 15-minute exposure made the ship on the horizon into a bright yellow line.

The opening reception for the show is at CPA's gallery, Jan 12 from 4-6 pm, Carmel CA (between San Carlos and 9th Street).

Thanks Amber but of course it's not a sunset. Look closely, if you've ever seen a sunset like that I want some of what you're smoking. It's a 15-minute exposure of a brightly-lit ship on the horizon, taken at night under a full moon. See the stair trails?
