OIL CLEANUP EFFORTS - WHAT TO DO

April 30, 2010

We’ve got a serious issue on our hands you all know about now. the Future repercussions of this oil LEAK from British Petroleum are outstanding, and it’s hard to think about.

From here on our my photo blog will be a blog about:

1. how you can help cleanup
2. where to get the up to date info

I will be teaming up with humidbeings.com to bring the blogoshpere to the coastal dwellers, as we try to get folks on the frontlines to blog about what is going on, what they need, and how.

1st off:

New Photographs up at CANARY

April 20, 2010

I will be showing 6 new photographs from my debut series, “Photographs from the End of the Earth”. These 6 images are the first of many in my ongoing document of Grande Isle, Louisiana.

After going there w/ a good friend almost 5 years ago, i fell in love w/ this community which reminded me of Lafayette, the bayous and it’s surroundings. When i wanted to get away from the computer and the city, i’d drive to the little island. You can get there only a few ways, and my favorite way was to take 90 to the West Bank, and take the Old Hwy 1. Here you would pass thru towns like; Des Allemands, Raceland, Golden Meadow, Cut Off, on your way to the big bridge that dumps you on the island. And here, you are really at the end of the earth.

What fascinated me about the island was its people. But what i began to photograph was their surroundings. I had just got access to the 4×5 on loan from the New Orleans Photo Alliance, and I would take drives on inside side streets, and explore the backyards, the leveed backyards, boats in yards, graveyards in yards. All on the island. There really is no place like it.

I will be showing some images from “Photographs from the End of the Earth” at the CANARY Gallery on May 1st…here’s more:
