Personal Record is an ongoing stream of the images I make outside of my professional career. The personal images, mobile images, outtakes, and random candid images that I take on whatever camera I happen to have handy at the time; a documentation of my day-to-day life and the things I come across that interest me visually.
The highlight of this past week was the debut of Nick Butlak’s (who has made appearances in many of my pictures) gallery show – collecting a number of his paintings and installation pieces. friends and artists from all over buffalo came by the opening to see Nick’s newest work.
Helping my mother move into her new house had me visiting Niagara Falls a lot this week. Aside from Toronto, this is one of the most dominant landscapes of my youth – It is an oddly unbalanced mix of industrial structures, suburban hideaways, consumer temples, and forgotten grandeur. I think I will be working on something more in-depth in the coming weeks to record the area in greater detail.
I have been busy lately with a lot of meetings and portfolio reviews as 2012 is starting to get busy – I have a stack of thank you notes still to mail out to all the awesome creatives that I have met and shared my work with the past few weeks.
The reward for a well executed all night work marathon.
