Alan Goodman of Revolution newspaper stopped by my studio and interviewed me about the walk-in panorama I created about Mike Brown and Ferguson.
In May I wen to Ferguson to photograph, with images of the riots from the nightly news still vivid. I found something very different. On the yellow line where Michael Brown dies was a makeshift memorial made of hundreds of stuffed animals, flowers and notes. I created a 360 degree, walk-in panoramic photo that let people step into Ferguson.
In May I exhibited some new work titled, “Un-shredded,” at EyeWash at Schema Projects. I “acquired” a bag of shredded paper that was left outside for recycling by the police and reassembled parts of it. Even the privacy of the police isn’t guaranteed.
I jus returned from Tulsa, where photographs of my book were exhibited at Tulsa Community College and I was a resident artist for the week. I had a great time guest lecturing in a photo class, and taking a group of students and local artists around a deserted section of Tulsa for a photo field trip. Then to top it off I gave a talk at the Woody Guthrie Center. And then left before the temperature hit the 90s!
Beautiful day to fly the drone – I was with Mark Moran of Weird NJ and Rusty Tagliareni and Christina Shimishaw of Antiquity Echoes.
