Street Photography and the Urban Scene
May 20 – June 18, 2017

Davis Orton Gallery, 114 Warren St., Hudson, NY. 5/20 – 6/18/2017.
Reception: Saturday, May 20, 5 – 7 pm.

Four-person show; I’m one of the two Showcase exhibitors. Richard Sandler, William Hellermann, Susan Bowen, and Peter Donahoe. I am exhibiting 12 pieces from the New York Walking series.

Davis Orton Gallery is a charming gallery in the artsy small town of Hudson in upstate New York.

From my statement: “This group of images were shot at busy street corners in New York City, as I like to record the swirl of activity around me. The vantage point is low; I am sitting on the ground with a small tripod and rapidly capturing people as they walk by.”

Below Canal Street: July 5 – 22, 2017

Soho Photo Gallery, 15 White Street, NYC. 7/5 – 7/22/2017.
Reception: Thursday, July 6, 6 – 8 pm.

      
Group show in the upstairs gallery. I will be exhibiting four of my Instagram images.

Show Statement: “New York City can be divided into familiar areas and for our first, location-based group show we are asking for images made on the streets and shoreline of Manhattan below Canal Street. TriBeCa is our immediate neighborhood, but there is also a wealth of material around Battery Park City, the Financial District, South Street Seaport and the Courts. People, places, small details and large buildings: the only restriction is that the original image was made Below Canal and that the final print speaks to the show’s title.”

Also on exhibit downstairs is Soho Photo’s annual National Competition.

Water 2016: October 7 – 29, 2016

Center for Fine Art Photography, 400 North College Ave., Fort Collins, CO. 10/7-10/29/16.
Reception: October 7, 6 – 8 pm.

Raindrops on Car, Red
My piece ‘Raindrops on Car, Red‘ will be included in an exhibit curated by Richard McCabe on the theme of Water. 55 images were selected from a submission of 1,745 entrees.


From the Juror’s statement:

Life on earth is made possible because of water. The surface of the Earth is over 75% water. Human blood is over 90% water. Mankind’s complex and interconnected relationship with water makes for unlimited possibilities for photographic exploration. Water can sustain human life and it can destroy cities. Issues of water rights, droughts, hurricanes, and rising sea levels permeate the headlines.

Water 2016 features many varied and diverse approaches to the visualization of water in contemporary photography.

Water is very photogenic. It can be opaque or translucent, textured or smooth, it can be still or moving; it shimmers and reflects light. Water can be photographed from above and below its surface. Its colors and tonal range change with temperature and light.”
