photographer of the day: mohamed bourouissa

mohomed bourouissa is amazing. his work is absolutely stunning. from my understanding, all of his images are staged and yet somehow they aren't stagnant at all - they're exciting and vibrant and full of tension. i can't find his website but here's a nice blog post about him.

my video interview with photocorps

yesterday i was interviewed by ricky montalvo for the photo corps which is a super-new-super-cool website (it's so new that right now it's mostly under construction but you should absolutely bookmark it and check back soon).

ricky is working to produce gorgeous videos of select photographers talking about their work over slideshows of their images. ricky's long time video production experience lends his videos a smooth and beautiful elegance. he says, "my goal is to showcase these videos via itunes/podcast and through a website where [anyone] can learn about the journey of artistic process photographers like yourself"

i'm very excited and flattered to be in the innagural few asked to participate. i can't wait to see how it turns out!

typography + me = happy

i was lucky enough to get this pentagram calendar today. i'm a major typography lover so i'm a very happy clam and my desk looks much cooler than it did yesterday.

MOPLA (month of photography, los angeles)

the pdn's 30 exhibit just debuted at MOPLA this week. my friend damon from photo induced sent me this photo from the show since i couldn't be in LA for the opening - my image is top center:

photo relaxing

today is the first day in months that i don't have anything scheduled. thank goodness for a breather. i'm very excited about the prospect of an open day... maybe in addition to doing a bit of work i'll go see the 49 geary galleries or visit green apple or do some other fun sunny day thing. it was also wonderful to get out of town this past weekend for a couple of fantastically nothing-filled napa days.

my opening was a wild success

it was amazing, just wonderful. our best guess is that about 250 people came over the course of the night and i have never felt so supported. thank you all so much for coming!

special thanks to my parents and josh for the endless support, sonya yruel for the great photos, austin willacy for the rockstar music and michael thompson for the gallery space and the wonderful framing.

if you couldn't make it, check it out before it comes down on may 5!
