I have been very busy lately with the new collaborative effort, of which I am part,
Flash Flood. We have just launched Issue 2. This issue includes interviews and works with David Bram, Jason Fulford and Holly Roberts from New Mexico and a showcase of images by Sheilah Wilson. I hope to be back to this blog soon with new interviews. In the meantime, check out Flash Flood.

Critical Mass Top 50: My Top Picks

There were over 200 people from varying backgrounds judging the second round of work submitted to Critical Mass this year so the picks were spread far and wide. I would like to add my opinions about some of the artist who did not make it to the top 50. Here is a list of my favorites:

(not in the top 50,... but fantastic!!)

Tony Chirinos (not on the top 50)

Susan Worsham (not on the top 50)

These photographers made it in the top 50:

Jenn Ackerman

Simone Lueck

Phillip Toledano
