My series, China Everbright, will be shown again in Shanghai on Dec. 7, 2011, as part of Tim Franco‘s periodic Photographer Night at Dada Bar at 115号 Xing Fu Lu, Chang Ning Qu, Shanghai, China. Here’s the facebook invitation for the event. The work was previously shown at this location for the Beijing + Shanghai Jue Art Festival, and now it returns for a “Best of” night, curating the best presentations in the year-long photography series. Thanks to Tim for supporting photography of China!
I’m excited to announce that two of my images, from the series on China’s zoos Small Concrete Boxes, have been selected for inclusion in My Own Wilderness, an online exhibition and book created by Christopher Paquette of Photo/arts Magazine. You can see a high quality version of the exhibition/slideshow at Vimeo and a list of included photographers here. More than 150 photographers submitted over 700 images to the call for entries; 50 photographers made the cut. Thanks to Christopher and congratulations to the winners!
I’m excited to announce that from August 20 to September 18, 2011, my essay China Everbright will be projected at the 2011 Ballarat International Foto Bienalle in Ballarat, Australia. The slideshows will be shown continuously for the duration of the festival at the Art Gallery of Ballarat at 40 Lydiard Street in Ballarat, Victoria, Australia. China Everbright has been shown previously at the 2011 New York Photo Festival Slideluck Potshow and the 2010 Jue Art and Music Festival in Shanghai and Beijing.
My gratitude goes out to Rebecca and Ginta, curators of Melbourne’s wonderful public art organization Strip Billboard, who helped put me in touch with the Ballarat festival. Thanks also to Ross at the festival for getting me into the schedule of projections.
Mapping the Flâneur, including my contributions to the project, will be reshown as Re:Mapping the Flâneur at the Newcastle Arts Centre (67 Westgate Road, NE1 1SG) from 14th to 25th June 2011. This is a recuration of the project created by Wideyed and ASA Collective in cooperation with North East Photography Network. There will also be a private viewing of the exhibition to coincide with the Sunderland University’s international conference ‘The Versatile Image: Photography in the Era of Web 2.0’.
My long-term project China Everbright has been selected to be shown at Slideluck Potshow XVI at the New York Photo Festival this Saturday night, May 14, 2011, at St. Ann’s Warehouse at 38 Water Street in Brooklyn, New York. The event runs from 5:30-10:30pm. There should be a huge crowd there–last year the event won the Guiness World Record for largest potluck dinner in history–and the selection of slideshows is a breathtaking, inspiring bunch. Whitney Johnson, the recently-named Director of Photography at The New Yorker, curated the show.
I’ve reproduced the full list of participating photographers, which could double as a start to a list of my photographic idols, here: Alex Fradkin, Alex Webb, Benjamin Sklar, Bruce Gilden, Carolyn Drake, Chris Hondros, Dominic Bracco, Dominic Nahr, Elena Dorfman, James Pomerantz, JR, Krisanne Johnson, Iwan Baan, Landon Nordeman, Luca Zanier, Luis Ladron de Guevara, Lyle Owerko, M. Scott Brauer, M. Wesley Ham, Mari Bastashevski, Mark Peterson, Martin Usborne, Matt Eich, Melanie Burford, Michael Christopher Brown, Natasja Fourie, Peter DiCampo, Phillip Toledano, Platon, Rinko Kawauchi, Stefano de Luigi, Steve Pyke, Steven Brahms, and Tim Hetherington.
I’m honored and humbled to have my work shown among such talented photographers.
Tickets to the event are available for purchase here. If you’re there, please say hello!
One of my images (above), previously shown at 25CPW in the Magnum/Giving Trees exhibition and on the PDNPulse blog, will be projected in a PDN-sponsored slideshow presentation at the New York Photo Festival this week. I’m a little unclear about when the slideshow will be shown, but I believe it will be at St. Ann’s Warehouse at 38 Water Street in DUMBO, Brooklyn, between May 11 and May 15. I’ll update this post if and when I find out more information.
One of my photos (above) from the Rocky Boy Agency in north-central Montana is on exhibit in Whitefish, Montana, through the month of May. The show is also a benefit auction for a cool organization called Youth Image Project. From the mission statement of YIP, the organization aims “to empower at-risk teenagers by providing photographic training with which they can share their personal vision, expand their skill sets and advance their life opportunities.” They do this through year-long digital photography classes using donated equipment and a mentorship program. The opening reception and auction occured May 5, 2011, at The Walking Man Frame Shop and Gallery at 305 Baker Avenue in Whitefish, MT. The exhibition runs through the end of May.
Wish I could have been at the opening reception, but I’m glad to support the organization. My thanks go out to Jennifer at YIP for organizing the event and to Chris Jordan for suggesting my work to her.
Dvafoto (Matt Lutton and I) have been invited to participate in the Mapping the Flâneur, a month-long Collectives Encounter installation and exhibition produced by the ASA and Wideyed collectives at the Format Festival in Derby UK. Many collectives are involved in the project, and the project website is filling out nicely if you can’t make it to Derby.
I’m excited to announce that I’ll be part of another exhibition this December. My photo of an environmental public service ad in China has been selected to be part of the Magnum Foundation and the Green World Campaign‘s exhibition “Giving Trees” at 25CPW, located at Central Park West & W 62nd St. The photo was recently used on the cover of 100Eyes recent issue on China. The exhibition features the work of Bruce Davidson, Gilles Peress, Alec Soth, Steve McCurry, Jim Goldberg, Mark Power, Jean Gaumy, Stuart Franklin, Larry Towell, Martine Franck, Danny Lyon, Werner Bischof Estate, Trent Parke, Peter Marlow, Gueorgui Pinkhassov, John Vink, Harry Gruyaert, Jonas Bendiksen, and selected other photographers (including me) found through a juried open call.
The opening will be held December 3, 2010, from 6 to 8pm at Central Park West & W 62nd St, and the exhibition runs through Jan. 9, 2011.
Two of my photos have been selected for a juried show at the Vermont Photo Space called “Scene on the Street” (if you’re viewing this post after the exhibition, the link may no longer point to the right place). The juror for the exhibition is Ed Kashi, a photojournalist whose work I deeply respect. The exhibition opens Dec. 13, 2010, but the reception will be on Dec. 19, 2010 at 3pm. Vermont Photo Space is located at 12 Main St., Essex Junction, Vermont. There are a couple of friends in the exhibition as well. Peter McCollough will have 3 pictures on the walls, and Peter Hoffman will have 1 in the show.
