Juried Exhibits and a Respite

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.

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.
