A preview

I've been working on a lot of new things for the past several months and keeping them tucked away until I feel things have been resolved enough to share as a body of work. For now a preview thrown out there with a slight nervous smile.

John Ben, 7th Ward | New Orleans, 2009 from the series The Weight of Air (working title/work in progress)


And from an entirely different new body of work...


228 months from the series Black is the Day, Black is the Night


6:22 pm, September 22, 2009 from the series Black is the Day, Black is the Night

These are excellent, Amy. The portrait is stunning in its emotional weight.

I know what you mean about being hesitant to show new work until it starts to come together - I'm at that stage right now on several projects, and it makes me feel like publicly I'm doing nothing at all, since I don't want to show any of the new stuff I'm working on - such a conundrum!

Hi, I'm new in comments here, But I just wanted to say the last image looks really interesting - had to flip the lcd screen to find a way to look at it, but i imagined something truly beautiful on paper!

Ps thanks for adding my blog to your links.

Best
