untitled #76

I know I'm always asking you lovely people to vote for this and for that. I'm sure some of you don't have the time, don't care, or are sick of it and have stopped.

But for those of you who have itchy trigger fingers, I've entered my work in the Exposure competition run by Artists Wanted in New York.

Although the major prize (which I'd love to win) is decided by the judges, there is also a People's Choice Award, so your mission, should you choose to accept, is to rate my portfolio.

I promise I won't ask for your votes for anything else until.... Monday.

P.S. If by some miracle I win the major prize, I'll happily accept donations to pay for a flight to New York. Ahem.

On Sunday I had the good fortune of being invited by Jo O'Brien and James Price to join them, Stephen Mitchell, and later Simon Liberta and Dave Aarons to photograph the fun folk above who just happen to be really, really, ridiculously good looking.

Clockwise from left: Eugenia, Chenai, Louise, Sonia, Praveen and Elise.

Make-up by Kelli who was good enough to wait around for us to return for a second round mid-afternoon.

saatchi online critic's choice

saatchi online critic's choice 18 - 24 Feb 2008

I don't know how I didn't find out about this before, but I just discovered that I was selected as one of the weekly top 10 artists on Saatchi Online for the week 18 to 24 February 2008 by Ana Finel Honigman, Senior London Correspondent for the Saatchi Gallery's online magazine and Art Editor of Alef Magazine.

Her critique focuses on my 365 Days work and is quite glowing, though I managed to trick her with my clone self-portrait of "Isabella and David". Everyone assumes that "David" is a man, not me, as they don't realise it's a clone :D

the collectors' exhibition 08 catalogue

Tonight I headed down to the opening of the Contemporary Art Society of Victoria's "Collectors' Exhibition" opening at Steps Gallery in Carlton. I didn't know anyone else who had work included in the show, and being a Sunday night I didn't hold too much hope of friends turning out, though I knew Chris had mentioned coming along.

Shortly after my arrival I came across him and we nattered and checked out the art. On getting to my work I found some folk closely eyeing both images and the page dedicated to me in the catalogue (as above). Chris mentioned they'd been doing that for a while.

Of course I was pleased, but ever the "don't count your chickens" girl, I moved back around the exhibition and we perused other work, discussed other photographic stuffs, sampled the finger food and grabbed another glass of red.

I only noticed three photographs in the whole exhibition, and two of those were my own.

After conversation in the foyer, we returned to the show and out of curiosity I went to check my work, only to find a lovely red spot by Domestic Goddess!

Although this isn't my first print sold, it is my first print sold in a gallery show, and on the opening night, no less, so I am quite chuffed.

Here's hoping that my other print will sell too :D

untitled #9 [cape paterson]

Well, it's been somewhat delayed as you'll be able to tell from the images included by me and the "featured work" description referring to my hope to exhibit the work as "my first solo show", but mooncruise* magazine have finally released their new issue!

11 of the final 12 images that made up my solo show are included, along with 7 other images that didn't make the cut and which I have not previously posted online at all.

The issue includes a wide range of work, from ultra-stylish fashion through gritty black and whites to very personal polaroids (and some of them "not safe for work").

Easiest way to navigate through the magazine is to click on the names on the right then choose "slide mode on" or "slide mode off" depending on your preference (if you choose "off", clicking on the black squares under the images will move you from one image to the next).

There's also some nice ambient music to enjoy whilst your eyes feast upon the images, but if you're at work or not into that sort of thing you can turn it off.

And if you wander further afield there is a gallery and A fashionmagazine* also on the site.

Zoe Burdack
Zoe's smiling because I've recently edited this wonderful photo of her for inclusion
in my (soon-to-be-live) update of the facade section of my website.

I'm smiling because five of my images have been included in Phirebrush Release #61.
They are on the first page of the photography section.

And the Phirebrush team are smiling because this issue marks their sixth year! Happy anniversary guys!

disclaimer: i think this may be my cheesiest post ever

lucky 13

I'm currently updating my website (the changes aren't live yet) and I wanted to replace one of the images in the facade section that I didn't feel was very strong. In the course of selecting what to replace it with I decided to re-edit one of my images of Karen from the night I photographed her for Litmus Journal's "The Mistress" and my own series, "Frankly, My Deer...", a continuation of my Ladies of Leisure series.

At one stage last year I remember thinking to myself that my post-processing skills had improved greatly since I'd done this shoot with Karen and that at some point it would be interesting to go back and re-edit a couple of shots and see how much better they would now come up.

I'm still very happy with the main image from the "Frankly, My Deer..." series, which has been exhibited around town and is currently at the Toyota Community Spirit Gallery, but some of the others like the one above I had not been able to edit to a standard that I felt really happy with. However, I am now quite happy with this edit, much more so than the original edit.

*contended sigh*
