Urban & Human Empathy Book

I’m pleased that ten images from my Avoid Naples! project are included in Urban & Human Empathy Vol. 1, which was designed by Stefano Ambroset with text by Roberto Srelz, and published by Exhibit Around and dotART. The book was unveiled at Trieste Photo Days, where I was honored to be named best photographer for the Urban & Human Empathy competition.

Thanks to everyone involved with Trieste Photo Days.

Trieste Photo Days – Urban & Human Empathy

I’m looking forward to visiting Italy for the Trieste Photo Days. This international festival of urban photography is in its fourth year and includes exhibitions of Italian and foreign artists, workshops, screenings, presenting books, meetings and events related to road photography, architectural photography and artistic photography linked to the urban sphere. The official program is now posted.

I was honored to be named best photographer for the Urban & Human Empathy Exhibition with my Avoid Naples! project. I will be giving a talk at 7:00PM on October 28, where Stefano Ambroset and Roberto Srelz will present the photographic book “URBAN unveils the city and his secrets – Vol. 03” , which contains a selection of the best photos of the URBAN 2017 photographic competition and the Urban & Human Empathy photographic project, the first photographic project launched by the Exhibit Around platform, focused on the human presence immersed in the urban context. Other speakers at the festival include Maurizio Galimberti, Monika Bulaj, Denis Curti, Giorgio Galimberti, Roberto Polillo, Fulvio Bortolozzo, Graziano Perotti, Tadashi Onishi, and Christine Miess.

Blue Sky Gallery – Out of the Drawers

Every year since 2007, the Pacific Northwest Photography Viewing Drawers at Blue Sky Gallery have featured an annual juried exhibition of prints by more than sixty contemporary regional photographers. Selected prints with a particular theme are displayed on the wall opposite their library. I’m delighted to be included in the current show, which runs from May 23 – July 14, and also includes prints by Marcia Mahoney, Ricardo Nagaoka, and Nolan Streitberger.

Girl at the Abastos Market – Oaxaca

The show “Out of the Drawers: Self-Assertion” was curated by Claire Elizabeth who says that the photos “spotlight girls, unidealized and dignified. Taking pleasure in ordinary life, and pride in cultural identity, these girls are as strong as they are playful. Each one conveys her unique capacity for mature self-possession.”

Thanks to everyone at Blue Sky Gallery for their devotion to photography.

Talk at Portland Art Museum

Every third Wednesday of the month, the Photography Council hosts a Brown Bag Lunch Talk at the Portland Art Museum. I’m delighted to be doing the presentation this month on April 19, 2017, from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm. The event is free to the public and is sponsored by the Portland Art Museum Photography Council with major support provided by Pro Photo Supply.

My talk and slideshow, entitled Candid Photography, will describe the development and evolution of my artistic vision and method for the candid photography of people in public spaces around the globe. Whether documenting routine activities or special celebrations, my photos provide a compelling glimpse of human emotions, interactions, and connections, and they open a window to the world that surrounds us here and now.
