One side of me would prefer to call this my visual 'journal,' as this section reflects images that I make, new techniques I try, places I explore or events that I record throughout the year . Frequently I will pair a quote with an image which often enhances or adds depth and new meaning to an image. 

Thank you for your visits and comments.  Both are important!

Pondering Paper

The assigned challenge was to explore a friend’s home (with camera in hand) in an open, free, and creative manner.  I chose to focus concentrate on books and paper found in her home.  I hope you enjoy the images as much as I enjoyed making them.

Slow Exposures Pop Up Exhibit

Tuesday

Pop-Up Show: from project to presentation

What began as a simple project to document change in rural Nolensville has evolved into an invitation to present a satellite Pop-Up Show during the prestigious Slow Exposures photography festival held in Pike County Georgia September 15th through 18th.

With help from many and at the risk of omitting someone, I want to publicly thank the following:

John Bennette – the juror and curator of the Slow Exposures Pop-Up Show

John Bennette is a collector, curator and champion of artists. Bennette has written for a number of publications including 21st Journal of Photography. He has been a portfolio reviewer at events including Fotofest, Rhubarb-rhubarb, Photolucida and Atlanta Celebrates Photography. He works with the committees of a number of charity based photography groups including FWAB. Bennette was former Art Director and Art Editor for South by South East Photography Magazine.

Chris Curry and the Slow Exposures Committees and Advisory Committee.

Sandy Burr and Sharon Brown Christopher – f/4 Studio members who have provided technical support, editing support, and listening ears during the evolution and development of this project.

Mr. Pete – local Nolensville native who has opened doors to many Nolensville private farms and locations as well as provided historical insight for the Nolensville project.

Jim Levins – Brentwood Goin’ Postal owner and friend who professionally printed flyers for the exhibit.

Jack Henry – my husband who has supported this project in too many ways to express.

The exhibit is titled A Quiet Celebration of Rural Nolensville and “invites the viewer into a quiet and peaceful reflection on a simple way of life and to experience a moment of nostalgia of Nolensville and the American South.”

All sixteen images in the exhibit are offered for purchase, however the image below – “Celebrating Childhood” – will be offered for raffle at the Do Good Dinner during the Saturday night Slow Exposures festivities.

"Manus et Pedibus"

Thank you to juror Tim Booth for including "The Fiddle Player's Hands" and "Don't Let Your Books Gather Dust" in the "Manus et Pedibus" exhibit at Darkroom Gallery.  

"Don't Let Your Books Gather Dust" was awarded an Honorable Mention in the exhibit.

From the juror's statement: "Don’t Let Your Books Gather Dust
This I’d want on my wall. It’s animated and yet still, nicely processed and toned without being over fiddled with, perfectly composed and balanced. This came so close to being my Juror’s Choice because it has so much heart, and only missed it by a fraction as I felt that whilst being a beautiful image, it wasn’t quite on brief enough."

On Assignment

The message read:  The original York family barn on York Road is about to succumb to the developer’s bulldozers.  Do you think you could swing by and photograph it for history’s sake?

I, of course, was more than happy to accept that assignment.  And, as usual, I found some other interesting photographic treasures while ‘on assignment.’
