My October 2011 exhibit at Gallery 180 coincided with Chicago's Filter Photo Festival, and I was asked to speak about the images for a kick off reception for the Festival. The reception was held at the gallery on their first night.
Here's Filter Photo Director Sarah Hadley and Exhibition Curator Chuck Gniech. Erin Hoyt was Production Coordinator and took the pictures for us.
In 2009, I was invited to exhibit at the Lishui Festival in China. This is the entrance to the thirteen building American Pavilion. A really massive Festival.
Nestled into the hillside were these traditional buildings used as the American Pavilion. I was given the second floor of this one. What a venue!
Amy Miller curated the exhibit for me on behalf of Atlanta Celebrates Photography.
It was my honor to submit our signed, gift prints from the Western Photographers to the newly opened Lishui Museum.
Earlier, I participated in the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the museum. I'm the good looking one in the middle. I was told that this was the first official Photography Museum in China. Hard to believe for a country this size, but, an honor of a lifetime, true or not.
As the sole Westerner in a very formal, official, Chinese ceremony, I had a two part diplomatic strategy; smile a lot and don't start a war.

They snaped a few pictures for me at the 2009 New York opening of "A Miidnight Carnival."
I found that New Yorkers are passionate about photography, very passionate about black and white and exceptionally passionate about street. This was the same Gallery Roy DeCarava held a retrospective from a few years earlier ,and while I'm my own artist, I felt a bit under the microscope as seasoned New York Photographers arrived, in groups of threes and fours. The feedback turned out to be sincerely positive, even from most of the traditionalists. I didn't have to worry about being burned at the stake on 26th Street.
