I feel sort of bad for my little blog. It’s been sitting here quietly, unattended, while my life has gone into overdrive. However, I’m of the mind that everything happens as it ought to, so in some way, the sabbatical was meant to be. But several very exciting things have been happening recently, making it clear that this was the time to enact a resurrection. And here we are.
The first big thing is my quickly approaching first solo show!! Yes, May 26th is opening night at the Torre del Reloj gallery in Polanco, Mexico City. This stunning gallery in one of the city’s premier arts neighborhoods is two stories, all dedicated to MOI! Well, “moi’s” photographs. I even have a PR lady who has managed to get me some sponsorships, and is working on reviews, interviews, additional venues, etc. More about this in the weeks to come.
Also, just yesterday I received truly exciting news: I’ve been selected as the artist for the artist in residence program at the Mojave Preserve, under the auspices of the National Park Service. I attended a seminar about this last October, and knew from the moment I got the flyer for the event that they were going to choose me. Call it manifesting, divine intervention, ESP, mind control – I had never been so certain about anything in my life. So when I got the letter confirming what I already “knew”, it did freak me out a little!
Over the course of the next several weeks, I will be making several trips to the park, staying overnight for several nights at a time, and hopefully capturing not only it’s natural beauty, but also some of that ineffable something that makes for great photography.
