After Mean Creek / Before the Fall

I finally got around to scanning the last image we made with my camera before it tumbled of a cliff. My friend, Raina and I were talking yesterday about how interesting and ironic it is that the last photo we made was this very ominous one -- where I look as if I may be dead. We had just seen a movie called Mean Creek, which was set in Oregon and involved the accidental killing of a bully. When we set out to make a picture, with this on our minds, as well as the very typical Oregon weather we ended up this image. When we tried to take another -- slightly too near a cliff -- the camera fell to its untimely demise in the river bellow. So sad.

The large Format group has work in a couple of Group Shows this month! First and foremost the Through the Music Gallery is turning 4! I can hardly believe it. We have a few prints in their Annual Group Show to celebrate their Birthday. The Gallery located on the corner of Main st. and Elliot St. in Brattleboro Vermont in back of Turn it Up! Just go through the music and up the stairs. If you cant tell already I am a huge fan of this place, if you live in the area I highly recommend going there.Also one of our prints has been selected to be a part of the The Arrangement at the Vermont Photo Space Gallery.
