Recent Focus: August, Art & Artists

Though my updates mostly stopped last fall right before I had my son, August, my work continues to focus on the arts. And on August, of course.

I recently shot the exhibitions for the Philadelphia Art Alliance, which included an incredibly smart installation Temporary Stay by emerging Philadelphia artist Kristen Neville Taylor.

Before that I documented both the latest opening and current shows for the Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia.

The first, Myths of the Marble, a collaboration by Alex Klein of the ICA, and Milena Hoegsberg of the HOK,  is interested in the virtual through the lens of a specific group of artists.

 

The second, Ginny Casey & Jessi Reaves, curated by Charlotte Ickes, features by two exciting artists working with, respectively, painting and sculpture, and the interactions of their works inspired by "domestic objects, and decorative surfaces."

I have to say the following is one of the most fun collaborations I've ever documented– The (Re)New You Fashion Lab– a collaboration between Moore College of Art & Design and students at The U School High School, inspired by RAIR. Philly's version of Project Runway.
