news item #1



I have been stressed out all day, mostly due to the insomnia that I experienced last night. Insomnia is not fun. But I am optimistic about a good night's sleep tonight and a better tomorrow. It's hard not to feel optimistic when the sun is shining brightly while snow flurries are flurrying!

I haven't forgotten about that news that I want to share. The first bit is that for the first time ever I am participating in a group photo show!! I am very excited (and nervous) about it. The show is in March at the Werehouse in NC. I'll be sharing the space with two of my favorite artists, Liz and Laura. And I am incredibly honored that they asked me to do this show with them. It means so much to me, for so many different reasons. One of my 2006 goals was to have a photo show. A goal that was not accomplished, but I wasn't too upset about it as halfway through the year, I realized that I just wasn't ready to do it. Plus I ended up participating in the Handmade Arcade which sort of made up for the lack of a photo show. But now in 2007, the photo show dream is finally going to happen! And it is going to happen at a place that is probably one of my most favorite places in the world. The Werehouse has always brought nothing but comfort and inspiration to me. So yeah, very excited.

I have to admit, I rarely even call myself a "photographer", but I have been taking photos practically all of my life. If anything, I am a snapshot photographer, a documentarian of sorts. So to do this show, I don't know, it's really a huge step for me, whether or not I ever do another show again. I'm very happy that this is happening. I have a lot of work to do, picking out photos and what not, but I think in the end, it will all come together nicely. I'll keep you posted.

  2. That's awesome about the show, J. Even better is that it'll be close enough for me to visit it.
