Museum Exhibition: "Up in Arms: Taking Stock of Guns"


Exhibition: June 24 - October 23, 2016

Guns exert enormous physical, psychological, and symbolic power over Americans. They are a tool to some, a public safety hazard to others. Issues of race, economic inequality, personal protection, as well as the meaning of the Second Amendment and the concepts of Liberty and Justice underpin our deeply held positions on guns. Discussion of their use and regulation exposes deep fissures within communities across our country.

Up in Arms: Taking Stock of Guns features work by Liu Bolin, Linda Bond, Kyle Cassidy, Madeline Fan, Susan Graham, Jane Hammond, Don Nice, Sabine Pearlman, and Jerilea Zempel. The exhibit delves into our relationship with guns, explores the influence they have on visual artists, and, we hope, will provide a platform for constructive discussion about guns in our society.

“The paradox at work in each photographers’ body of work shown in “Bullet Points” is that there is an allusion to beauty while indirectly stirring, for the viewer, contrasted ideas of chaos, death, and destruction,” says Paula Tognarelli executive director of the Griffin Museum of Photography “Since ancient times the act of violence has held our attention, sometimes to the point of desensitization as in the Roman arena,” she says.

Feature Shoot feature: "NOSTALGIA"

Curated by Alison Zavos Feature Shoot’s Founder and Editor-in-Chief, this collection of photos truly captures the bittersweet essence of the nostalgic temperament. All photographs are inherently nostalgic, but those that hit the hardest are those that transform something palpably personal into something undeniably universal. Where general sentimentality applies only to the events that occurred in one’s own life, it’s entirely possible to feel nostalgic for something you never had in the first place. A bite from nostalgia bug cuts deeper than one inflicted by homesickness, because in the end, nostalgia brings with it the knowledge that we can never go backwards. The photographs in this show, however, allow us to do just that, if only for a moment.

Wet Plate Collodion Photography

In 2014 I took a Wet Plate Collodion workshop with the amazing Allan Barnes. The image below is a self-portrait created during that workshop. After several months of collecting equipment and supplies, I'm finally ready to get started on my own. I can't wait to further explore this wonderful process!
