The Year of Maine Photography
This year started out with the March show of Addison Woolley at 3Fish gallery in Portland. I was happy the show got an interesting review by Daniel Kany in the Audience Section of the Maine Sunday Telegram of March 15.
The photo exhibit: “Highways and Byways” at the Lewis Gallery in Portland was very successful and I was proud to be a part of it. At the same time I have work in the Bruce Brown Collection show at the Pace Galleries of Art at Fryeburg Academy.
Black &White magazine published four of my New York Subway photographs in their issue 110 (Portfolio Contest Issue) which has been available in the bookstores since the beginning of June.
You will also be able to view (or purchase) my work in the Kingman Gallery in Deer Isle. The Kingman Gallery is one of the few art galleries in Maine specializing only in photography. Check out their website: www.kingmangallery.com
Vox Photographs in Portland was showing one of my pieces in their show: “Natural”, which ran from March 26 through May 6th and another piece in the show: “Vacationland” which will show through August 20th.
From July 28th through September 25th at the Art Gallery of the University of New England I will be participating in the exhibit: “A Tale of Three Cities, Paris, New York, Portland” curated by Steve Halpert. The exhibit features photographs of these three cities by photographers from Maine. It promises to be an exciting exhibit!
This spring we were in Italy. Tried to photograph Venice in an less touristy way. It is always tempting to photograph the gondolas near the Piazza San Marco with Santa Maria della Salute in the background, but it has been done a million times! It does not require one to be original. I did it anyway, but then I took some other Venice photographs that I hope were of a more original view point.
See?, this makes for a nice enough postcard at best. But everyone has done it. I had more fun printing these shots, laundry in the Jewish neighborhood of Venice. No Gondola’s this time around!
And then this mysterious fellow!
Or this night color shot!
You can find some more of my Italian stuff in the “Travel” gallery!
