I haven’t posted in awhile; I have been busy entering quite a few Juried Photo Exhibitions. I was lucky enough to be accepted into three different exhibits across the country:
Through My Lens – Cortland National Photography Exhibit 2015 , which is in Cortland, NY (near Syracuse), The Academy of Fine Arts National Juried Photo Exhibition in Lynchburg, VA, and Photo Now in Highland Hills, Ohio.
I am so disappointed that I will only be able to attend one exhibit opening reception. It is such a treat for me to actually be there among so many talented artists (and of course, to see if I win anything!). Unfortunately, one being in Virginia and another in New York, I don’t see that happening. However, I will be able to attend the one in Ohio on September 8th, and am looking forward to that! Wish me luck!!
I also decided to take a time out to recharge my imagination and start a new series. I have finished the first image and am presently trying to decide on the series title. It will be a series of photographs depicting the various forms of unbelievably deep sorrow that people experience in their lives. Whether it be the tragic loss of a child, a fatal illness, neglect, mental illness, taking care of a terminally ill loved one; I am in awe of the kind of people that live through this kind of heartache and survive. I know that I am not one of those strong people and so am so intrigued by what gives them their strength. The first in the series is called “Disappointment.” I am thinking I might call the series “Heroes.” What do you think? If you have a suggestion for the title of the Series, I would love to hear it. Just type it in the comments. Look for “Disappointment” in my next post.
