I want to start with a big thank you for all your support.
This is the final week for this Kickstarter campaign and only 3 weeks till my Residency at the Art Institute begins. To a pretty high degree I have determined what papers I will be using. Because of the Kickstarter, I will be able to use Moab's slick rock. It is a paper that reminds me of the old Cibachromes. I am also working on getting my photographs print ready.
One photograph I am working on is my final root piece. It is a cross over work from two series: the everyday garden and the current series it comes to this. I grew a plant in a mold, the shape of an anatomic heart, broken in two. Then last year, after a couple years of growth, I opened the mold and photographed the results. I was able to photograph it using a digital Hasselblad, but then let the image languish, focusing on other aspects of this over all project. Now with this opportunity, I will be able to complete this work, as well.
You can also check out my unedited kicktarter video. It is sorta funny, I love that Randall, who shot all the video footage, is cracking up.
Thanks again, and spread the word if you can!
Thank you for your support and interest so far. I have added another incentive for those of you living near San Francisco: a portrait session with an 11X14 included.
When you chose this incentive, you will schedule a portrait session with me. We create 50 to 100 images, then choose one to print as 11X14 on Metallic paper. This paper is super cool... reminding me of the old Cibachrome type paper. Of course other sizes are available, as well, more images if you want.
Thanks again for your generous support... I hope you can help me spread the word to make this campaign successful.
