Shot last weekend at White Rock, a swimming hole and campground near St Paul, Indiana, for my project The Hoosiers. Got lots of great stuff, going out again tomorrow to get some more. See my Behance site for more of this work.
I shot this series in an older coal-powered generating plant in Richmond, Indiana, for the IMPA annual report. Applied Arts ran some of the project in its just-released photo annual.
I’ll be doing more industrial landscapes, scenes and workers as part of my ongoing project with the Indiana Historical Society, in which I document all things Hoosier and the IHS places them into the Harold Lee Miller Collection of the IHS historical image archive.
Just posted my latest on Vimeo, a microdoc about Brad Jones, a guy who inspires a lot of people but virtually none of them know him. Sometimes curiosity gets the best of me and I just have to find out a little more…
Shot industrial landscapes in East Chicago yesterday for a new project I’m working on with the Indiana Historical Society. I’ll be shooting all over the state creating images the IHS will archive in the aptly named Harold Lee Miller Collection. These images will be part of the historical record.
Looking forward to more work on this important endeavor, which will allow future Americans to know more about who we were at this point in time…
Eric Kass is showing his collection of Ephemerotica at my studio/gallery for First Friday tonight. Lots of cool stuff and also Eric, who will exhaust you if you talk to him long enough. He has a lot to say and if you actually try to think about it as he speaks you’ll find yourself getting farther and farther behind, until you’ve given up all hope and can merely nod and look attentive. Or that’s the way it works for me anyway.
Well not really.
Ad agency Virgen of Las Vegas had me out to The Excalibur Hotel and Casino to shoot a campaign about the great food they have at their buffet. Five shots later, I managed to crawl back to my room to sleep off the excess.
They say that what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, but if that’s true, why did I weigh more when I got back than when I left? Why is THAT?
And did you know that people are gambling in Vegas at 6 in the morning? I was shocked, SHOCKED to see that there was gambling going on there. At that hour.
