Here is some really exciting news after a long silence on my blog. This fall I will be exhibiting panoramic portraits of Austin artists, in a group show at Davis Gallery. It is one of the oldest galleries in town and I am really happy that they want to show this work which has never been exhibited before. The chosen images were created as a part of my Panorama365 project which came to an end last year. My original goal was to post a panorama every day. After eight months of working on them 2-3 hours a day I decided to mostly stop. I had been photographing all kinds of people and places around Austin, but the thing that stuck and has continued, are portraits of artists working and creating in their studio spaces. It has been incredibly rewarding because of all the wonderful relationships that developed from me simply asking to take someone's portrait. I would like to continue that practice, elaborate on it, and get to know everyone a little bit better.
In support of that goal and this upcoming show, and really because I think it will be fun and rewarding, I plan to interview each subject from the chosen images and post them on my blog between now and the opening. It would also be great to photograph and interview the other three artists who are exhibiting their work and get to know them better. This will no doubt be a really amazing show and I can thank Susannah Morgan at Davis for inviting me to be a part of it and for putting it all together. Stay tuned for weekly posts leading up to the opening on September 6th.
