The Southern Photographer, a blog site dedicated to Fine Art Photography in the American South, authored by photographer and NC State professor John Wall, posted a really nice review of my show at The Center for Documentary Studies, at Duke University. He also listed the several very positive reviews I've received this year on other sites. I'm happy to be on his important site for photographers in our region. Thank you John!
The Useful Work: Photographs of Hickory Nut Gap Farm project was featured on June 28 as the Photo of the Day on Photo District News. PDN is the primary trade magazine for the photo industry, so that will introduce my work to - well, who knows! Anyway, I'm impressed!

The Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University, in Durham, NC, will be hosting the exhibition Useful Work: Photographs of Hickory Nut Gap Farm beginning June 2. The opening for the exhibition will be sometime in August, but the photographs will be up for the duration of the summer. This is terrific news for me - I am a big admirer of CDS and have been since discovering the work of Alex Harris, who founded DoubleTake magazine for the Center, with Robert Coles. CDS is known for its programs in film, photography, and scholarly research.
My friend Congo (Mike Congleton), an art teacher at Asheville's Carolina Day School, asked me to participate in Art Day today. I brought some aerial panoramas made with the balloon camera, as well as the photomast pole. I also brought a small point and shoot camera that I modified to make infrared pictures. Nice group of kids. Here are some pictures.
