Summer Photo Show

I am so very pleased to have four of my iPhone pieces chosen to be in the “Summer Photo Show” at The Lunch Box Gallery in Miami, Florida. The work of only fourteen artists was chosen to be in this show that begins August 11th and runs through October 6th. The show is a mixture of photographic styles including mixed-media, documentary and iPhoneography.

The four pieces chosen for this show are shown below.

Here is an excerpt from the official press release:

“The Lunch Box Gallery is pleased to announce for the second year its group exhibition “Summer Photo Show 2012”, featuring the photography work of fourteen artists. The showcased pieces are a result of a call for entries oriented to national and international visual artists working in all styles of photography including any mixed-media art that utilized photography as one of its forms of expression. All photographic methods, formats, types and schools were welcomed.

In this show, The Lunch Box Gallery is exhibiting works of insightful conceptual ideals materialized through exceptional craftsmanship, which are intended to represent fascinating takes and points of view in photography nowadays. The thought behind the image of the artist is very important in this show, yet as important as the final visible result. The range of photography tendencies to be found in the show is vast: from conceptual and documentary photography, to narrative photography, photo-essay, iPhoneography and photo-collage; touching on topics like obsessive-compulsive tendencies, the demystification of the “happily ever after”, performative images that play with childhood materials to reflect on how they determine us, or the mistreated young Muay Thai boxers from a Bangkok slum. They all convey on representing an individual concept and a very particular way of externalizing it.

Photographers participating in the show include:

Sarah Tortora (Connecticut), John William Keedy (New York), Noah David Bau (Boston/Bangkok), Amy Leibrand (Ohio), Miranda Maynard (North Carolina), Lissette Schaeffler (Miami), Aimee Hertog (New Jersey), Dafna Steinberg (Washington DC), Ted Oonk (The Netherlands), Luisa Mesa (Miami), Troy Colby (Kansas), Ramesh Pithiya (Washington DC), Naimar Ramirez (Puerto Rico) and Tracy Thomas (California).

The “Summer Photo Show 2012” will be opened to the public on Saturday, August 11th from 5:00 – 10pm, at 310 NW 24th. St. Miami, FL 33127 (Wynwood Art District) / Regular business hours Tuesday – Saturday 11:30-5pm or by appointment.”

So once again I am humbled and blown away by the wonderful reception my iPhoneography is receiving out in the “real” world. It is such a joyous means of expression for me and I absolutely love that others are finding pleasure in my work.
