The blog has not been very active for the month of October because I was working on a collaborative effort with four other New Mexico photographers--Jonathan Blaustein, Jesse Chehak, David Ondrik and Jennifer Schlesinger-- to form Flash Flood. Although my article was delayed, there is some great content on the site including:
The Clock Didn’t Really Stop Long Ago by David Ondrik. A review of Craig Varjabedian’s photography exhibition at the Albuquerque Museum, on view through October 11, 2009.
Scott B. Davis, New Mexico Influences by Jonathan Blaustein. An interview with Scott B. Davis, Artist and Director of Exhibitions at the Museum of Photographic Arts in San Diego, California, who received his BFA from University of New Mexico in 2000.
The New Director of Scheinbaum & Russek, Ltd, Andra Russek by Jennifer Schlesinger. Russek recently migrated back to her hometown from New York where she worked at Swann and Sotheby’s Photography Departments.
Flash Flood’s New Mexico curated by Jesse Chehak. A call for images for Flash Flood-curated essays and portfolios from readers contributions.
Most important is the call for work created in New Mexico to be curated by Jesse Chehak. Submissions are due by October 25th, 2009. Find the specs here and email firstname.lastname@example.org.
