Artist to See

This guy has some fun human forms. He does some interesting things in scale I would like to see this in person because some are life size and some can fit in your pocket. His materials vary from ceramics, bronze, and plaster. Here are a couple I think are interesting. For more visit his website HERE

Robert C. May Photo Lecture @ UK

An-My Lê will be giving a lecture on Friday, January 30 in the Worsham Theatre of UK's student center at 4:00 PM.

"An-My Lê was born in Vietnam in 1960 and came to this country as a political refugee in 1975, the final year of the war. Her photographs not only reveal her deeply rooted personal history but also raise larger questions about our perceptions of and relationship to war. For the series Small Wars, she spent four summers with Vietnam War reenactors in North Carolina, both as a photographer and as a reenactment participant. More recently she has photographed military training maneuvers for the Iraq War in the Mojave Desert in Southern California. Her large-scale photographs reflect a sanitized version of military conflict, literally a theater of war."

I, along with some other photo students are planning to view the lecture if you would like to join us.

Study Abroad: London & Dublin

Over the winter break, I had the opportunity to teach a "digital landscape photography" course with CCSA (the Cooperative Center for Study Abroad). It was a two week trip to both London and Dublin. The course was comprised of 15 students from 4 different college and university, including 9 from Georgetown.

I have to say, this was a absolutely fantastic trip! We had such a great time, saw so many great things, met new friends, and made excellent photographs.

The class is still working on finishing images for the class. We're posting on Flickr to share photos and carry out critiques.

My suggestion is that if you have the opportunity to study abroad, seriously consider it. It's a powerful experience and an excellent opportunity.
