Sometime around 2001, I decided I was a landscape photographer. No more birds, just the land. And an odd seal.
I was making a lot of trips to California, driving north and south, wandering with a camera. In 2003 I lived in LA for six months, and wandered about Griffith Park, the Salton Sea, and Ocean Beach, San Diego. I got a great gig catsitting in winter '04 in East Hampton. More time to work with the landscape. That summer, I was able to travel to the Candian Maritimes... In 2005 I showed photographs from these wanderings at Derek Eller Gallery in New York.
There's a show of my photographs opening this Thursday (September 8) at Derek Eller Gallery. It's called Estimated Landscapes, it probably will have seventeen or so small pictures, predominantly landscapes.
The opening is 6 PM to 8 PM. Do stop by if you have a moment. There probably will be some plan to go and do something cheerful afterwards, though possibly in such a difficult location that one might want to investigate other possibilities for the evening.
The show is slated to stay up until October 8. Gallery hours are 11 AM to 6 PM, from Tuesday to Saturday. It's at 526 West 25th Street, between 10th and 11th Aves. There's a gallery website, it's http://derekeller.com/.
If I haven't managed to mail you a charming announcement postcard of a baby seal, and you would like me to mail one, by all means please let me know your address.
