“All Apologies” benefit group show

L.A. Contemporary Gallery in Culver City hosted a benefit, one-night only, mixed-media, silent auction on May 17, 2008. The list of artists was impressive: John Baldessari, Robert Rauschenberg, Tracey Keilly and Kathleen Buckley on the art side of things.

I’m happy to say the print sold, with most of the proceeds going to a charity dealing with suicide prevention.

PPAGLA 2008 contest

On a lark, I dropped off a hastily compiled photojournalism portfolio of my best shots of 2008 for the Press Photographers Association of Greater Los Angeles’ student PJ of the year competition. It was comprised mostly of the work I did on the California wildfires in October. I just found out, via email, that I’m… Continue Reading

mus-mus @600

A very strange thing this mus-mus is. 100 photographers took a picture at the same time (@600 Internet time) on November 4th, 2008. 75 photographers selected by the organization (including Michael David Murphy, Hin Chua, Zoe Strauss, Roger Ballen and Amy Stein) and 25 photos chosen from a juried submission call. It’s pretty cool being… Continue Reading
