East Carolina University School of Art and Design hosts an exhibition for image-based media every two years called the Photographic Image Biennial. They have always had really awesome jurors like Maggie Taylor and Jerry Uelsmann, just to name a few. This year’s juror was Keith Carter, who just happens to be one of my favorite photographers. What I love about so many of his photographs is the mystery behind how they were made. Many of them make you wonder how he ever got in such a situation to capture what he captured. Then there is his series titled “Talbot’s Shadows”, which I also admire. It is amazing that he can take these ordinary, every day objects and compose them quite simply in such a way that they can hold your attention because of their beauty.
I am very pleased to announce that one of my images, “Delayed Respite” will be part of the exhibit this year. It was an honor to have Keith Carter view my work, but much more of an honor that he chose one of my pieces. If you are in Greenville on January 13th, there will be a Juror’s talk given by Keith Carter at 5pm in Speight Auditorium (in the art building). I have heard him speak before, so I’m sure you will enjoyed it. There will be a gala reception following the Carter’s talk. I hope you can come out and enjoy some wonderful image based media! Here is the piece that was selected for the show:
