I’m pleased to announce my participation in the first issue of 50pm, a monthly collection of fine-art photography portfolios and the first portfolio-based photography magazine developed especially for the iPad (Santa, bring me an iPad for Christmas, ok thanks).

Here is a link to the Apple iTunes page. Go download it for your iPads!

And a separate Lite version, which previews the full magazine, is iPhone compatible and is free.  Though you really need to buy the full iPad version to experience the app in all its glory.

Our first issue – Family Matters – has been released in app stores worldwide on December 7. It comprises of beautiful portfolios by Chris Verene, Hee Jin Kang, Mami Kiyoshi and Elizabeth Clark Libert, four artists who share inside views of their own families. It covers American family life of various social classes and a Japanese family set against a recreation of paradise. Each of these artists has connected with their family to create a beautiful, strong and often touching photo story.

50pm – the iPad magazine is a collaboration between Bite! magazine (Dutch, online) and Daylight Magazine (US, print and online). Both magazines feature fine art and documentary photography of the highest standards.

It only costs $1.99 to download the iPad app – I hope you check it out.

I have a photograph showing only for one hour on Tuesday, May 25th from 11am-12pm.  If you’re in the DC area:

“One Hour Photo distills the photograph to the ultimate limited edition: 60 minutes. Photographic works will be projected for one hour each, after which they will never be seen again, by anyone, in any form. Each work will exist only in the limited moments of perception, in the individual and collective experience, then memory, of the observers.”

One Hour Photo was created by Adam Good and curated with Chajana denHarder, and Chandi Kelley.

May 8—June 6, 2010
American University Museum at the Katzen Arts Center Washington, DC
Hours: 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Tue-Sun

The show opens on Saturday, May 8th from 6-9pm.

The full schedule is here.

I’m participating in a group show coming up at the Umbrage Gallery in DUMBO, curated by the Exposure Project. Join us for the opening:

Graphic Intersections & The Portrait As Allegory
May 4th – June 26th, 2010
Opening Reception: Thursday, May 6th, 6 – 8pm

Umbrage Gallery
111 Front Street, Suite 208
DUMBO, Brooklyn, NY 11201

Graphic Intersections is a collaborative project loosely based on the old Surrealist and Dadaist game The Exquisite Corpse. Designed to unite disparate artists in an interconnected photographic relay of images inspired by one another, or as the Surrealists put it, to exploit “the mystique of accident”, this project strives to emphasize a system of response entirely rooted in unmediated visual reaction.

This exhibition includes photographs by Ben Alper, Anastasia Cazabon, Thomas Damgaard, Scott Eiden, Grant Ernhart, Jon Feinstein, Elizabeth Fleming, Alan George, Hee Jin Kang, Drew Kelly, Michael Marcelle, Chris Mottalini, Ed Panar, Bradley Peters, Cara Phillips, Noel Rodo-Vankeulen, Irina Rozovsky, Brea Souders, Jane Tam and Grant Willing.

The Portrait As Allegory is an exhibition that examines the work of three artists who utilize the figure metaphorically in service of a broader discourse on the human experience. In addition to exploring the personal identities of their subjects, these portraits simultaneously become vehicles which speak to a variety of social, historical, and familial histories.

This exhibition includes photographs by Timothy Briner, Birthe Piontek and Susan Worsham.

It was lovingly built using Indexhibit. It’s quick and simple, with horizontal scrolling and bigger images, and no flash. So you can view it on your iPhone. Hoorah.
