Yan Li, owner of HIgh Noon Culture and Art in Beijing, China, will show my Confluence portfolio at the 23rd annual international photographic art exposition photo l.a. 2014. These images explore the meeting of the natural world and the human-created by joining my vibrantly colored and richly detailed botanical images with more monochromatic, nonrepresentational work. I believe that nature provides us ideal models of form and design from which to learn and draw inspiration, so this is a natural pairing.

Windsor Art Center Exhibition "New Construction" with photographer Kim Kauffman & others

Selections from three related bodies of work – Florilegium, Investigations and Confluence – are part of an exhibition at the Windsor Art Center featuring six artists who work with modern interpretations of the age old genre, still life.

From the WAC web site:
New Construction features six photographers who construct, create or otherwise build images either to be photographed or as part of the process that culminates in a photographic image.  Most of these photographers utilize to some degree the material of traditional still life – objects, artifacts, artwork, flora and fauna.  But each photographer brings his/her own perspective and to varying degrees, the power of the cutting-edge digital toolbox to this venerable genre.”

Of Interest:

Over the holidays I read “Photography Changes Everything”, edited by Marvin Heiferman, with a forward by Merry Foresta. Co-published with the Smithsonian Institution, this compilation of essays came about from Heiferman’s participation in a project designed to raise awareness of the vast collection of photographs in the Smithsonian’s collections and archives. First came the web site “click! photography changes everything” where experts from a vast range of disciplines explore the ways photography shapes our lives and culture. Most essays included in the book are also available on the web site.

Photography was ever present in my life as a child and young adult. My father was an avid amateur photographer so I grew up in a much photographed family. He also worked for the premier aerial mapping firm, Abrams Aerial Survey, so I understood that photography had many functions. As a visual artist, images are my first method of communication, both sending and receiving. With photography such a natural part of life it is hard to imagine a time without images everywhere. “Photography Changes Everything” makes clear the radical cultural shift that the advent of photography brought about and continues to do. The broad range of applications in these essays point out how photography influences our well-being and understanding of the world in ways we may not be aware of. The book title is no overstatement.
