I will be exhibiting Mother's Day, Lake Peekskill, NY 2004 in an exhibition entitled "Home is Where the Camera Is" at the PhotoPlace Gallery in Middlebury, Vermont. The exhibition runs from March 1-March 26, 2011, with a reception on Friday March 18 from 5-7pm. The exhibition was juried by photographer Julie Blackmon, and sets out to explore how we use the camera to record our lives and the lives of others. There will also be a full color catalog available for purchase. To quote from the Juror's Statement, "When it comes down to the themes of family life and home. . . some things never change. The intimacy, the tenderness, the passion for life and those we love, the small stories found in the most ordinary everyday moments, and even the sometimes inescapable angst built into all of it, are the same things that have defined "home" long before our digital cameras and computer software came along." The PhotoPlace Gallery is located at 3 Park Street in Middlebury, Vermont, just a few doors down from the Sheldon Museum in the center of town.
Contact information for the PhotoPlace Gallery is:3 Park Street, Middlebury, VT 05753. Telephone (
I took my first real photo when I was eight years old of my father and brother-in-law making pancakes. The fact that they hated each other came through in the frame and I guessed I was onto something so I stayed with it. I am available to take pictures at any event but I can never guarantee you will like them because the truth often hurts.
It is derived from a quote by Garry Winogrand on the art of photography: "This process is Perception (seeing) and Description (operating the camera to make a record) of the seeing." With his razor sharp insight, he created this deceptively simple aphorism which encapsulates what we should strive for in our photographs.
