My work is showing in San Francisco!
On Thursday March 6 the first of two Critical Mass 2013 group exhibitions slated for this year opened in San Francisco’s Corden|Potts Gallery. I wasn’t able to make it, but my friend Clay Lipsky (an excellent photographer, also featured in the show) had his iphone in hand and produced these panoramas that give a sense of the event and the installation.
Critical Mass is a photo review organized by Portland OR-based Photolucida that I think does photographers like me a great service. Photographers submit photos from a single body of work to be reviewed by a huge panel of over 200 photography curators, editors, gallery owners, critics, journalists, non-profit directors, and educators.
The chance to show that many art and documentary photography leaders your work is incredible! But on top of that, those jurors then vote on their favorites: and the top 50 projects are deemed the “Critical Mass Top 50” for that year and end up in a traveling group show of the work. Not bad!
This year that group show was curated by Jessica Johnston, Assistant Curator at the George Eastman House. After the stint at Corden|Potts in San Francisco (until March 29,) the show will travel to the Houston Center for Photography, where it will hang May 9-July 6.
