One of my images from “rangefound” photobook (below) has been chosen in the 2013 American Photography 29 competition. Image will be housed online in the AI-AP Archive. “One of only 185 images from over 9,000 submitted…”
Searching the web quite by accident I discovered I took home a BRONZE in the People’s Choice award in last year’s 2011 PX3 Prix de la Photographie, Paris for my photobook “state fair” (the “Other” category). Entries from over 85 countries. Got no notice, never would have known. See it for your self here at Blurb.
Meet Kay Freeman, Mounty Queen of Mangum OK. A shag-carpeted trophy room dedicated to her equestrian achievements in the Mangum, OK museum. A wonderful place to see the town’s history and Oklahoma’s past. Peek your head into here and turn to the right…you’ll find the award leftovers in a corner basket. More from Mangum coming soon.
My new photobook “state fair” available at Blurb. Photo documentation of one of the last State Fairs held in Detroit, Michigan (2005) before funding ran out. Photographed with a Leica M6 on Fujichrome Velvia 100F 35 mm slide film, cross-processed into negatives.
Received word from curator Marc Prust that I have been chosen to be a part of this year’s FotoGrafia Festival Internazionale di Roma, September 23 thru October 24 2010 at the MACRO Testaccio in Rome with the photobook below. The theme of this 9th edition of FotoGrafia is FUTURESPECTIVES, or “Can photography interpret the future?” Stand by for more details.
UPDATE: images sent to Rome for show prep. Tried to get a flight to opening but airfare is waaaay too expensive.
A couple of my entries have completed the first three rounds of judging in the International Photography Awards 2009 and now have been named OFFICIAL SELECTIONS. They include the single image “Vegas Couch” and the reproduced food image series “Delicious” (three sample images below).
Delicious statement: An image series of commercially created and idealistically presented foods and dishes, passed through the filter of time, age, distance, weather and photographic reproduction into new serving suggestions.
Well, I am honored to find out (months after the fact) I had made it into the NOMINATION stage of the 2009 New York Photo Festival Awards with my photo book American Tour. The book is available for purchase at blurb.
(I often wonder what would have happened had the Comfort Motel NOT been torn down…)

From the press release:
The Jury of the New York Photo Awards 2009 (NYPHA’09) is pleased to announce the following Nominees.
To be named a nominee of the New York Photo Awards 2009 means that one has been selected for the final round of judging, during which time only three finalists will be chosen (Winner and two Honorable Mentions). Considering the number of rounds that the Jury has already been through, being nominated is truly an award in and of itself. We are very proud of this year’s Nominees. It is clear that they represent the Future of Contemporary Photography, and we wish them continued success.
The Winners and Honorable Mentions will be announced (and their work presented) at the Gala Ceremony for the New York Photo Awards 2009 on Friday, May 15th at 8pm in the St. Ann’s Warehouse Auditorium. This is a special ticketed event, there are only 415 seats, and they are selling out fast. Last year, we packed the place to the gills, and still had another 200+ people flowing out to the streets. So, if you want a seat, you have to have a ticket. Festival passes and tickets can be purchased here.
These are fun. Two photos selected to be in the ASMPNY “Close Up” show at Calumet in NYC this month. And printed BIG for the first time (44″ x 31″). Check www.asmpny.org for details. Will try to make the opening if I can get away. And yes, they are for sale. UPDATE – photos of show can be seen here: http://galleries.stephenmallon.com/show/
