TimeFrames: A Tribute to Henri Cartier-Bresson

Just recently, I stumbled across the Calumet TimeFrames project: a sporadic call for entries based on a chosen theme resulting in a slide show on the website. The latest edition, dated 8/22/09, was based on the 101st anniversary of the birth of Henri Cartier-Bresson, the "father of photojournalism" and the man who coined the "decisive moment."

Contributors were asked: "What image of yours best captures the decisive moment?"

I submitted 9705: one of my very first successful photographs, created in my senior year of high school. I was sitting in traffic on my way home from school one afternoon, with my Nikon manual film camera in tow, when I snapped this shot. It wasn't until after processing and printing the image that I recognized the repetition of shapes and objects, broken up by the car pulling out onto the road. This photograph led to the creation of a portfolio of work, based on reflections.

9705 is included in the first video on the TimeFrames website, near the end. Check out the project and look for the next call for entries.

"Food" : Great Falls Studios Group Show

The Great Falls Studios just hung "Food" : a group show at Katie's Coffee House (part of the Old Brogue) in Great Falls, VA . The show, which includes 23 pieces, will be up for the entire month of August. I entered an image from my Still Life series. Though due to the 154 inch size limit, I printed the image at 6"x10" and mounted it in an exquisitely gaudy faux gold frame. Come on out... have some coffee and enjoy some community art!

Hours: Mon-Fri 6AM-3PM, Sat/Sun 7AM-3PM
(The show can still be seen in the evenings, though you'll have to enter through the main Old Brogue entrance)

Address: 760 Walker Rd # C, Great Falls, VA 22066
