Last week was about new beginnings... this one is about finishings. Completing a body of work always leads to the photoshoot, a day I look forward to with both excitement and trepidation. This is when I decide if it's ready to be let go. Of course all work is in a state of progression but some more than others. With the camera I can see that which I can be blind to with the naked eye.
The new work photographed this week has received its ticket to leave! It's off to Wild Things at the Gallery in the Round Barn in Waitsfield, Vermont. This show, juried by Stephanie Walker, is now even more special than before: Wild Things is a show of contemporary work inspired by nature and it is nature that scourged southern Vermont with hurricane Irene. I hope this show can help bring some positive light and diversion to a community in need.
Here are a couple of links to give context to the devastation and how to help support the relief:
