More Good News for Jeff Rich

Savannah-based photographer Jeff Rich has just been named one of five finalists in the Book Award competition for Critical Mass, a virtual jurying process run by Photo Lucida to identify and promote the careers of emerging fine art photographers.

Jeff achieved this distinction based on reception of his portfolio Watershed which includes photographs of waterways, chiefly Southern, like the shot, above, of a garden on the North Toe River near Spruce Pine, North Carolina.

Jeff had pieces from this body of work at a show in Tallahassee, Florida in the 621 Gallery earlier this fall (hey, I had work at a show at 621 Gallery several years ago myself), in connection with a meeting of the SPESE Conference.

There's also an interview with Jeff up at URBANSAND, and he has work in a show up through January 13th, 2011, at the Reece Museum in Johnson City, TN, sponsored by the Appalachian Photography Project.

Congratulations to Jeff. He's definitely a Southern Photographer We Will Watch Out For.

Actually, I think it was the red wheelbarrow that makes this image. But then I'm a fan of William Carlos Williams, who knew that so much does depend on a red wheelbarrow.
