Montauk - In the Hat Cave

Wednesday, June 26 was 'Drop-Off Day’ at New York City’s storied Soho Photo Gallery for their upcoming National Competition Show. This is exciting for me as I had a very exciting reason to be there. The long distance introduction to a distant relative of mine, R. A. Smith of Tchula, MS, about two years ago has profoundly impacted my work. We began a collaboration that has explored the more artistic side of making images and has gone beyond the realms of straight photography. A couple of months ago, we gathered up a ‘what the heck’ attitude and added on one of our joint pieces to a submission I was making to the juried SoHo Photo Gallery show. It was that piece, our maiden submission, that was accepted. It’s a mixed media ‘construction’ entitled "Camera Obscura/Lucida (Barthes)" that is the first of a series based on interpretations of French philosopher Roland Barthes’ small but important book “Camera Lucida - Reflections on Photography”. . The opening reception is Tuesday, July 2, 6-8pm & while R.A. can’t make it up from MS, I’m really looking forward to being there.
