Contemporary Portrait 2018
The director of the Maine Museum of Photographic Art, Denise Froehlich, invited me to submit some work for, and then help her with the curating of this exhibit. Denise has been the director of the Museum for the last seven or eight years and has so far mounted a formidable series of photographic exhibits which should be counted among the best in the state. I was honored to be asked to assist her in this endeavor and have enjoyed it. It turned out to be a difficult task mostly because of the abundance of very high quality work that was submitted. The concept of the “Portrait” was left to the interpretation of the the artists and it was remarkable to see how much space there is for interpretation. The finished show is an interesting take on the concept with some of the area’s best photographers included. I strongly believe it is a significant show. Hope you can come in to see it. The exhibit will be up from Thursday June 14th through most of September. The exhibition space for the Maine Museum of Photographic Arts is housed on the fifth floor of the Glickman Family Library at U.S.M in Portland. Please join us for the opening reception on Thursday June 14th, from 6 pm to 8 pm.
I did submit some work for the exhibit that is part of a larger project called: “Urban Street Shots”. These are photographs I took last year at the famous Coney Island Mermaid Parade.
