In 2015 I was working on a now abandoned series tentatively titled New Boredoms. This photo is one of my favorites from that era, and I'm happy to say that it has received an honorable mention in Streetwise, a photography show juried by Bruce Gilden.
Prints will be available for sale at Darkroom Gallery from May 25 - June 18.
Just a reminder that Permanent Drift and Gravy Studio are offering another curate-your-own-zine event in conjunction with the closing reception of A Charming Form Of Government by Jessica Kourkounis and Ryan Collerd.
We are again proud to be collaborating with Gravy Studio to create a series of bespoke zines in concert with their latest show of photographs; A Charming Form Of Government by Jessica Kourkounis and Ryan Collerd. The title is derived from the words of Plato and is as relevant in today’s society as when it was written … when date stamps still ended with BC...
"Democracy … is a charming form of government, full of variety and disorder, and dispensing a sort of equality to equals and unequals alike."
The work is powerful, it is poignant, and now iconic with everything surrounding this tempestuous new administration. Join us at Gravy for the closing reception on February 25th to hear from the artists on what the grueling campaign meant for them, their work - and what challenges they now face, post election. Let us all come together and attempt to find solace in this new era of American politics.
Gravy also presents, Curate Your Own Zine! We asked our community of artists to send us their photos and/or writing that evoke feelings about what is going on in America today; issues they are worried about, photos from protests, things they saw on the street, experiences from traveling, portraits, places, events, etc. By sharing the artwork in this zine, we hope to create a collective view on how we want America to be seen and heard.
In the gallery below, we have collected a group of images via open call submissions, from which you may choose 10 images to include in your edit. Orders are typically assembled and shipped within a week of receipt. All sales will be donated to the ACLU of Pennsylvania.
My friends at Gravy Studio are doing another zine event, and I'm thrilled to be involved! The concept is an open-call submission for photographs and writings themed around the 2016 election. In the spirit of Democracy, the work will be displayed on the wall, where guests can select images and curate their own photocopied zines.
Send us your photos and/or writing that evoke your feelings about what is going on in America today; issues you are worried about, photos from protests, things you see on the streets, experiences from traveling, portraits, places, events, etc. These are some great entries to give you ideas! Photography has helped a lot of us through hard times this past year. By sharing your photos with us in this zine, we can create a collective view on how we want America to be seen and heard.
At our opening reception on Saturday January 14th featuring photography by Jessica Kourkounis and Ryan Collerd, guests can curate their own zine by selecting up to 10 images and/or text to include in their own zine. Zines will be $10 and mailed within 2 weeks of order. Proceeds go to @aclupa. Thanks to Permanent Drift for collaborating with us again to make these custom zines and Jessie Jay of True Hand Society for designing the cover!
Project Basho presents “Extended Eye,” an exhibition featuring the work of nine students participating in “Your Next Photo Project: Inspiration to Exhibition,” our 10-month development-focused course. These images represent a turning point in each photographer’s way of thinking and working, and are the product of continuous hard-work, discussion, and critique among peers.
Curated by instructor Tsuyoshi Ito, the exhibition highlights these emerging photographers of varying backgrounds and the potential that each presents for our vibrant and growing photography community in Philadelphia.
