Mill Street Salon exhibition at Kean University
Kean University hosted more of my personal work in a group exhibition entitled Mill Street Salon: Beyond the Image (I had a one man show there in Spring 2014). The exhibition ran February 13, 2015 May 2015 and showcased the work of nine NJ based photographers.
The Mill St Salon is conducted once a month in a 19th century industrial building in Bernardsville, NJ: Thoughtfully edited and carefully prepared prints are offered for review at each meeting, in an environment of mutual trust and honesty, which facilitates critique and reflection about the work. Extended discussions of equipment, technique and materials are discouraged. Philosophy and ethics of image making are discussed in the context of project based story telling. The group members feel that there are important stories to tell that will enlighten, stimulate, provoke or entertain, using images made in a rigorous manner. A refreshing departure from the selfie culture that most of us are now steeped in.
