In that vein, the news today is all about Get Lucky! and Honey Doo! and The Art of Matt McKee.
And, there is a bit of good news for you, too!
Read on, my friends, and don’t forget to check out the special link at the bottom of the post
Lose The Film ‘Zine With Honey Doo! and Get Lucky!
Honey Doo! (2016) and Get Lucky! (2019) have both been accepted into a ‘zine called Lose The Film, by Joey Aronhalt.
“Irreplaceable Resources”, the title of the issue, considers the “resources us humans cannot survive without in whatever capacity survival is determined to be.”
Joey commented, “This issue will help encourage dialogue and greater consideration about our interaction with our planet and what is vital.”
The zine, in production/design phase right now, will be 32 pages, 5.25 x 8.25” and is only available through pre-ordering now.
International Juried Photography Exhibition
Get Lucky!, the most recent in the Sweet Blasts Series, was accepted into Praxis Photo Arts Center’s International Juried Exhibition, “The Still Life”. The exhibition was juried by Ann Jastrab, Executive Director of the Center for Photographic Art , based in San Francisco, California.
“Still life photography, more so than other types of photography, such as landscape or portraiture, gives the photographer extensive leeway and precise control in the arrangement of design elements within a composition, “ said Ann. “Still life photography is a demanding genre, one in which the photographers are expected to be able to form their work with a refined sense of lighting, coupled with composition and design skills. The still life photographer makes pictures rather than takes them.”
The exhibition of 50 images from photographic artists from around the world, runs from August 22nd to September 15th in Minneapolis, MN.
Reception to be announced.
Praxis Gallery and Photographic Arts Center is a non-profit community-based arts organization, in Minneapolis, MN, USA, that aims to support the development of new and emerging photographic artists. www.praxisphotocenter.org
