Published: My first series of stamps with the USPS!

28 01 2014

Yesterday, after more than a year in the making, my series of USPS-licensed fern photographs were released as 49 cent stamps in large coil format for business use. Special thanks to art director Phil Jordan for being so great to work with on the series! I’ll be back with more details on how we can POSSIBLY get a smaller amount than the issued 3,000 and 10,000 quantity rolls!

On exhibit at the Art-Center in St. Petersburg, Russia

13 01 2014

A few months ago I was contacted by Asia Ershova, curator at the Art-Center in St. Petersburg, Russia, asking if I would participate in their annual International Photo Festival, “100 Wonders of the World.” This year the show runs from January 1 through March 2 (in case any of you just happen to be in Russia during this time). It was visited by more than 4,000 people in the first two weeks. They requested five of my images, which I’ll share in the next posting. Below are photos of the exhibition that show two of the pieces (koi fish pond with statue and a Buttonbush plant). Visit their site at www.artcenter.su. (You will have to ask my friend and fellow photographer Michael Powell to translate the site—he’s fluent in Russian!) Thank you to Andrey Bazanov, General Producer of the Art-Center, for providing these images from the festival.
