Mom on Flickr.
Holly Springs, MS
This month I’ve done very little shooting for myself. My new job specializes in family portraiture, and requires learning not only new skills, but a totally different set of gear. I opted to take a break from my regular style of shooting just to make the switch a little less confusing.
It’s been a great experience and I’m learning a lot, but I’m missing my own camera (a Canon), and I think I’m ready to find more of a balance between my personal work and paid work.
In the meantime, here’s a practice portrait of my mom, shot with the Nikon gear borrowed from my job.

This month I’ve done very little shooting for myself. My new job specializes in family portraiture, and requires learning not only new skills, but a totally different set of gear. I opted to take a break from my regular style of shooting just to make the switch a little less confusing.

It’s been a great experience and I’m learning a lot, but I’m missing my own camera (a Canon), and I think I’m ready to find more of a balance between my personal work and paid work.

"The Performing Artist" / Inspired by every facet of life, Alex Mercedes is a performance artist from the Bay Area who conducts lectures, and leads workshops that connect the mind and body.

In search of venues for her artistic talents in Mississippi (where there remains considerable resistance to conceptual art), she is most at home wherever she can share her love of music, storytelling, and human connection.

Mercedes is one of three locals I’m interviewing and photographing for upcoming features in the South Reporter newspaper.

P.S. Just a note that my Tumblr updates may be particularly slow this month. I just got a new job, so I’m dedicating most of my time to learning a different style of shooting and processing. I’m really excited about what I’m doing though, so great work is ahead!

"Piano Lessons" / Inspired by every facet of life, Alex Mercedes is a performance artist from the Bay Area who conducts lectures, and leads workshops that connect the mind and body.

In her search to find a venue for her artistic talents in Mississippi (where there remains considerable resistance to conceptual art), she has found a home in teaching piano at the Episcopal Church in Holly Springs.

"Detailed" / George Poteet holds the world’s record for the fastest piston engine car. He’s broken that record more than once racing across the Salt Flats in Utah. Why is his vintage car collection in a Mississippi town of roughly 8,000 people? Because he likes it that way. The car portraits in “Detailed” were shot during a visit to Poteet’s farm, and are one of several quiet, yet surprising, stories hiding out in Holly Springs, Mississippi.

"The Raw Materials of Artist John Felix Arnold III" / In anticipation of his residency in Japan and show at SFMOMA, visual artist John Felix Arnold III gave a tour of his Oakland art studio. The tour offered a preview of his new artwork, plus a few candid moments.

I just discovered that this set of studio shots, taken just before the summer in 2013, were published in multiple features on online art magazine, Fecal Face.

"Dwelling" / This was my third trip out to photograph the share cropper homes at Audubon’s Strawberry Plains.

At this time, the homes (now nothing more than shacks) are being examined for their historical significance. The structures are thought to be as old as the late 1800s, and as recent as the early 1900s.
