Young Lovers

Jovenes, Huanchaco, Peru, 2011'

Really one of the nicest things about being a lady fotografa is that you have a bit more latitude to take photographs of little children and lurk amongst impassioned teenagers without rousing alarm.  Even when you are carrying a large flash instrument in one hand and a shiny silver camera in the other.  This situation was fantastic, just like watching a double-feature or something.

BTW I think the color converts a bit odd in the browser.

This is definitely one of those images where 7″ is not doing it any favors. You miss details like the world domination of Paris Hilton (the woman in the yellow t-shirt is sporting the Hilton visage upon her chest), and all the complexity and detail.

Just a few scant days (June 25) to acquaint yourself with the jewel-box of an art museum, the Art Museum of the America‘s just off Constitution Ave on Our National Mall, before Corridor, the 12-person exhibit I have been honored to be a part of closes.  It’s really a lovely exhibit curated by Laura Roulet and Irene Hoffmann, featuring photographs by Sofia Silva , Phil Nesmith, Bernhard Hildebrandt. Video, printmaking, sculptural and mixed media work are represented by Martha Jackson Jarvis, Brandon Morse, Michael PlattJeff Spaulding, Oletha DeVane, John Ruppert, Soledad Salamé, and Joyce J. Scott.  It is an I-95 talent pool and the results are eclectic, interesting, and beautiful. But don’t take my word for it, go check it out yourself!  Here’s some install shots of my wall.
