I am really interested in ships. Old sailing ships, small sailboats. Basically anything that has sails, and looks like it is out for an adventure works for me.

I really like the work of photographer, Luis Gonzalez Palma, I was recently on his website, and came across this body of work. It is so detailed and thought out, yet simplistic. I feel like it is the perfect photo. It kind of reminds me of the beds of Martina Mullaney's photographs, in a sense.

My work is now on view (and on sale, which it never is!) at the Plaza Bistro which opens Monday morning. Containing seven photos from my Healthy Restraint series, which has been seen a little in Bethlehem before. I really enjoy the series though, and want it to get as much as exposure as possible.

Check it out, and check out the Plaza Bistro too!

On an unrelated note, The White Stripes broke up.
My Heart!

14 January 2011

I feel like I have struggled secretly (and at times, not so secretly) with post-graduate work and sucess. I feel like what I have achieved thus far is not up to par on my personal scale. Literally, this a situation that I struggle with on a daily basis. I feel like I have lost the core values I once held for myself. They have been replaced by the need to make money, and keep up on daily bills and chores.

I feel like I am in art rehab, very slowly building my way back up the ladder to the heights I was before. Helping this is a new, potential residency at the my old university. Even thinking of the idea of getting back into the darkroom produced a feeling that I have not had in a long time. I am so excited to make work again, for myself, to really show off my thoughts. I feel when this falls into place, other things will too, and I will pull through, and begin to be able to measure myself as I once did.
