Updates -- Jeff Rich, Susan Harbage Page, David Walter Banks and Kendrick Brinson
News, some just breaking, some timely because things are happening right now, or shows are closing soon --
Jeff Rich has just been been named winner of the Critical Mass Book Publication Prize by PhotoLucida for this year. As a result, Jeff will be able to produce a hardbound monograph of his portfolio of images, entitled Watershed - A Survey of the French Broad River Basin. Congratulations to Jeff on this honor, and on this opportunity.
Also, Susan Harbage Page will give a talk at the FedEx Global Center at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill on Wednesday, February 24th, 2011, at 7:00 pm about her work Walking the Border,with a reception to follow. This is amazing work, well worth a visit.
Michelle May has made a video about Page's work, available on YouTube, here. Shameless Self-Promotion Department -- Michelle interviewed me for this documentary, and I made it off the cutting room floor and into the film, though not enough to mess up Michelle's fine work too much. Check it out!
Also, David Walter Banks and Kendrick Brinson have a duo show called Escape now up at the Jennifer Schwartz Gallery in Atlanta. Banks and Brinson are Atlanta-based photographers. In this show, Banks documents the oddities of theme parks and roadside attractions, while Brinson photographs the retirement community of Sun City, Arizona during the celebration of its 50th anniversary. Review from the Atlanta Press here; Interview here.
This show closes at the end of this month, but I'm sure we we will be hearing more from Banks and Brinson.
