This photo didn't really say that much to me when I first shot it. I took it at the time that I was just starting to become fascinated with people in puddles and their reflections when I stood on this one corner for over 45 minutes just looking down in the water after a heavy rain. I dug it up after a few months of it sitting on my hard drive and three plus years later it's in two shows in two completely different venues.
It's not enough that two of my works are being installed at the MPLS Photo Center (read about it here) but I got word last week that one of my photos was selected to be featured at PhotoLA by the amazing people at Women in Photography International (in booth A-102). I've been recognized by this incredible group of talented female photographers before and when I saw that they were taking submissions for their booth at PhotoLA I was all over it. The booth is curated by Candace Biggerstaff.
So, from January 12th to January 16th, if you're in Los Angeles and you're looking for something very cool and cultural, then head over to the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium. It's going to be awesome and I need to live vicariously through you since I won't be able to make it there myself. And, they still have tickets available for the opening night benefit gala and Moby is the special host. It benefits the Wallis Annenberg Department of Photography at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. So it's a good cause too.
I'm pinching myself because this is too good to be true.
