Have you ever felt like a fish out of water?
I’ve illustrated that metaphor in a series of fine art images which have been featured “On TV!” in magazines, galleries and museums for more than a decade.
The technical concept: fish are tossed by an assistant and are captured (photographed) in camera. I use fish that I have collected and carry to typically arid locations far and near. On one Denver NBC-TV broadcast we used real smelts! The news special celebrated the 150th birthday of photography.
On October 6th I’ll be showing a new work, “Yipes!” shown here. I was asked to present the print in the 35th Anniversary invitational group show, “Confluence”, at the Emmanuel Gallery on the Auraria Campus. The opening reception is from 4-7 pm and you are invited.
