Fear of Nudes

Photofairs San Francisco opens this week. It’s one of the major global photographic art fairs, and to my taste the most interesting one in North America. Unfortunately, my work will not be showing there, for the simple reason that it involves nudity. My gallery was literally briefed not to bring any of my “sexy nudes.” It’s…  [ READ MORE ]

Observations from an Exhibition

Milan Image Art Fair, known as MIA, just ended. I was featured as a Proposed Artist, and showed my Hopper’s American series.The fair has a unique format.

There are 100 booths, and each gallery may only show one artist per booth. If they want to feature more than one of their artists at MIA, they need…  [ READ MORE ]
