This weekend (Thursday, Oct 22 - Sunday, Oct 25) is your last chance to see prints from my recent series Upon Sand on display at Holder Goods & Crafts. This was my first major photography show and I couldn't be more excited about the experience I had working with the team at Holder. They've created a new space so visually appealing, unique, and welcoming; my work was definitely elevated by being there. The amount of time and talent that it took to bring us this space is easily evident. Thanks to the other great artists whose work made the space come alive, Arrowhead and Wylde, and a special thanks to everyone who has already made it out to see the show, often braving some of serious weather to be there.
A few more black and white studio shots of produce from the State Farmers Market. Pictured this time are two German Johnson tomatoes from Walker Farms and one Hernandez sweet potato from Beth Moore's Produce. Shot with Nikon D800e and Zeiss Makro-Planar T* 100mm f/2 ZF.2 on an old cookie sheet.

Back in September I participated in an event at CAM Raleigh called Exposure Time, which was a fundraiser for the museum as well a celebration of photography in the area. This is a portrait I took of my friend and fellow Film 9 member, Ian F.G. Dunn. For Exposure Time, Ian (aided by Nick Pironio) was creating wet plate collodion portraits of his lucky subjects. I photographed Ian in his wet plate work shirt during one of his brief pauses from shooting.
