2010: The year we made updates
It’s been some time since I’ve made updates to my site, and I hope to remedy that problem. What’s happening now: I currently have a photograph up at SPACE as part of ‘Free for all 2’. It’s from the Kitchen’s Project series, which I have hopes to continue with. The image I selected was from the wonderful Portland restaurant Evangeline. Images from that series need … Continue reading 2010: The year we made updates

New: The Kitchens Project
In July I started a new photographic series I’m calling “The Kitchens Project”. I’ll be photographing in Maine bakeries and restaurant kitchens. My “ins” thus far have been friends who own or work in kitchens.

Why kitchens, restaurants and bakeries? Well, a few reasons: Continue reading “New: The Kitchens Project”
Collaborative Project/Site (Update II)
I’ve begun working on a new photography project with my friend Danielle Askini. She’s a writer, social worker and a trainer for The Center for the Prevention of Hate Violence (not to mention one of my favorite people). The idea for this project began while I was working on my family’s genealogy. As it turns out a few racist words were actually created on Ellis … Continue reading Collaborative Project/Site (Update II)
