Merry Christmas, heading into 2012, a year I never thought would come. Meanwhile downtown Detroit, a streetside window on Woodward sends it’s bright light holiday chill into the air. Plenty of seats left for singing, souping and lecturing.
Out now at Blurb…my new photobook “rangefound“. Images from rangefound.com with many previously unpublished shots. 64 pages, designed for ProLine uncoated stock (which turned out to be a really nice, smooth matte paper). Click below and go check out the preview at Blurb.
Back from Chicago’s Black Cloud Gallery and the Beginnings exhibition opening with my flag photo (thanks all, wonderful time) and I find a packet in the mail of The Sun Magazine copies (thanks Sun!) with a photo of mine inside. Sent it a couple years ago, a familiar sight in Santa Monica for anyone who has spent months of their life there. November 2011 issue, page 28.
Good news: the RangeFound® name for online journals, sites, blogs featuring rangefinder camera photography and general photography is now protected via International Bureau of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) under Madrid Agreement and Protocol (Reg. No. 1 089 240). The registered U.S. Trademark status (Reg. No. 3,893,811) remains as well.
My old Eastside elementary school in Niles, Michigan is returning to life. Recently closed by a questionable school board decision it is now reopening as a magnet institution. Walking through the empty classrooms I photographed the frayed and well-displayed flags. K thru 6 memories at each location.
