Unfortunately we did not make it to the museum to see the 57th Carnegie International Exhibit until yesterday. It really needs to be seen more than once.
The use of video and music in this exhibition is truly amazing. There is one 8 minute video in which each scene was painted by hand. And another that has videos of varying lengths for over three hours. Just a few days left so go if you are able it will not be disappointing. It’s at the Carnegie Museum of Art in Oakland.
Last week we went to see Itzhak Perlman at the Straz Center in Tampa Florida. It was wonderful to see a true master that is so accessible and funny. Before the show we walked along the Tampa Riverwalk and plan to return to visit the Museums. Nice job Tampa!
I took this image when I worked on the space shuttle of a glass cube floating in space. Just kidding I was never on the space shuttle. The image had to be manipulated to eliminate the background and string holding the glass cube. It was shot in a studio and the print was manipulated in the dark room with film masks and multiple exposures. Ah, the good old days.
Continuing with this weeks pattern theme, I am sharing another view of window patterns on the Chicago River. This pattern almost seems to spell out a hidden message. You can see other images and buy prints and apparel at my commercial site.
Capturing a photographic moment requires light, object and observer, What makes photographing fire so interesting is that the object and light are the same thing. However the flame is in constant change as the fuel is consumed and the flame interacts with wind and other elements. The shapes created are almost a Rorschach test contain hidden images and creating familiar shapes. You can buy a print of this image on my commercial site by clicking here.
