Seems interviews are all the rage the last couple of weeks! This latest interview was done by Chris Smith from Out of Chicago for his new podcast. Chris is also responsible for organizing the Summer Conference “The Art of City Photography” taking place this Saturday, there’s still time to sign up, just click here!
It’s hard to believe I’m sharing this interview with you as listening to myself speak is nothing short of horrifying but here you go, click here. This is my first live interview so go easy on me. And be sure to listen to the other two interviews with John Crouch and Nick Ulivieri…much better interviews and they’re both presenters at the conference this Saturday as well. John photographs architecture in a very interesting way and quite different than I do and Nick is quite well known for his weather photography around Chicago. Both have very admirable work so be sure to check out their websites!
I have a couple photo award announcements…
First I was recently notified as one of the winners for Book Publication in the 2014 Contemporary Fine Art Juried Contest by the Unlimited Grain Gallery in the Netherlands. Quite exciting given some artists I admire are also winners and it’s fun to be part of an international exhibition!
And one more that I’m quite excited about! I received a Silver Medal Award in the San Francisco International Photography Exhibition through Gallery Photographica. This is especially exciting as it was juried by the renowned Paula Tognarelli, Executive Director and Curator of the Griffin Museum of Photography.
A huge thank you to all the jurors in both competitions and to the Unlimited Grain Gallery and Gallery Photographica for these opportunities! I’m always honored and surprised to have my work recognized.
