One of the joys of being a photographer is the chance to meet and photograph so many unique people. In the process of creating images for my Picture Italia project based in the NW Italian wine producing region of Piedmont, many wonderful winemakers have been helpful.
Daniela Saffirio of Mauro Veglio Winery is one of the best. But, when Mauro Veglio and Daniela meet us in Monforte d’Alba to enjoy some prosecco, she is wearing such fun shoes!
Have you ever felt like a fish out of water?
This is “Yipes!” from my “Sometimes I Feel Like A Fish Out of Water” Series. It is a featured photograph at the Buell Theatre in the Denver Center for the Arts, downtown Denver for the Month of Photography Denver 2015.
It’s part of a split exhibition called, “It’s Personal” the ASMP Colorado portion of the overall exhibition, “From Dead Serious to Great Fun” which is running from January 22-March 29, 2015.
This archival pigment Artist’s Proof print in this exhibition is printed by Infinite Editions and framed by famed wood artist, Randolph Laub, to 28″x37″.
My Objet’s d’art are black & white checkerboard cubes or fish props that are tossed into a landscape by an assistant and captured in a single exposure in camera. No photoshop was used to create a composite. This series is has been a conceptual series of mine for 20 years and is ONGOING. I’m recently rworking with PhotoEye in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
For me the only way to do a great job on a book about the land and people of a place like the Italian region of Piedmont, is to immerse myself in the culture. That includes food, art and futbol.
- After Halloween, Easter is the biggest candy consuming holiday.
- About 90 million chocolate Easter bunnies and 16 billion jelly beans are produced for Easter each year. The favorite jelly bean? Red.
- Rabbits are the ancient symbol of fertility and new life.
- Rabbits aren’t doing all the work! In Switzerland the cuckoo delivers the Easter eggs and in Germany kids wait for a fox, chick, rooster or stork.
After a lunch at Coohills and shopping at REI, artist G. Wahl, struts her stuff. Life is good. What was refreshing and tasty for a summertime lunch? We enjoyed 100% prosecco, salmon with green peppercorns over beautiful spinach followed by a perfect espresso with an exacting peel of lemon. Grazie!!
G. prefers the sparkling prosecco prior starting her most expressive style of painting. I just prefer sparkling. It adds to the fun of shooting around our great LoDo locations.
Starting in Fall 2012, you’ll have to travel to Santa Fe, New Mexico, to visit her new studio. She’s represented there by McLarry Modern Gallery. See her new work
She’ll be missed in Denver, but what a great excuse to visit Santa Fe again.
I’m known for photography of people and the built environment + having fun ‘at the same time!’ Couldn’t resist creating this picture of George, Thomas, Teddy and Abe which was inspired by, Adam Lerner, friend and Director of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Denver. Thanks to these great guys from Rapid City, South Dakota. Happy Presidents’ Day!
Have you been to Mount Rushmore? I went as a youngster on a family driving vacation through the Badlands. Pretty amazing. About 2 million people each year visit this granite sculpture by Danish-American Gutzon Borglum and his son, Lincoln Borglum.
