May 4-June 4, 2016
Opening Reception: Tuesday, May 3, 6-8PM
After a long and immensely satisfying career as a photo instructor I retired in May. This is a group photo of my last class, a digital hybrids class. The plan was to roughly recreate Leonardo’s “Last Supper” with some students assigned to mimic particular roles and gestures from the original painting; students painted and dressed themselves accordingly. As the photo sessions devolved into a kind of controlled chaos the scene became more absurd and laughable than anything I’d planned and a perfect way to bid my formal career adieu. There are details of the image on the page “Last Laugh…”
With deep appreciation and thanks to: Taylor, Kyle, Maggie, Andriana, Alex, John, Griffin, Elise, Katie, Megan, Juliette, Devon, Nikki, Kasie, Marti, Megan P., Melanie, Abby, Kelley, Cara and Steve.
The piece is currently on exhibit in the Faculty Exhibition at The Fine Art Center at Bowling Green State University.
Here’s a link to my interview/article in Feature Shoot. They asked some very thoughtful questions. Take a look I’d love to know what you think. Thanks. LLK
As part of their First-Year orientation to the School of Art and Design, I’ll be working with their 90 incoming art students next week. We’re building forty-five, 4×5 cameras, making exposures, processing prints, scanning the images, printing them digitally, and having an exhibition of the work on the last day of the one-week workshop. (Or at least that’s the goal. Who knows if we can actually do it?)
The image: some of the 1000 camera parts…. I started cutting pieces in June.
If you live in the Santa Fe area I’ll have my work at the “Review Santa Fe” portfolio review from June 11-15. There will be a public viewing of the work of all 50 photographers, Friday night June 12, 2015 from 6:00 -8:00 PM at the Santa Fe Convention Center, 201 West Marcy Ave.
