I've got some big events on the horizon that I'd like to share in hopes of drumming up some support for myself... First, if you're in the Salt Lake area Friday evening, November 21, please come visit me, Amanda Moore, and Shalee Cooper at Saans Downtown for the second annual Holga Show! Shalee is the curator at Saans, and Amanda and I juried the show this year. There are over 150 images in the show from roughly 65 photographers around the globe. As a juror, I'll also have five of my Holga images on display. I'm so excited for the show, and I hope to see some familiar faces at the opening. The show runs November 19-December 17.

Second bit of news, I'm having my biggest solo show yet! Twenty images from my ongoing Plastic Landscapes series will be on display at the Sprague Branch of the Salt Lake Library in Sugarhouse from November 21-Janurary 11, and the reception is Thursday, December 4 from 6:30-8.

I'm really excited for both events, and for the next big one coming up in February. Amanda and I, along with our pal Brett Johnson had our collective toy camera work juried into the fancy-pants Finch Lane gallery in Salt Lake (which surprisingly doesn't have a website). We're going to check out the space tomorrow after lunch at Martine, where my Local Color series is currently hanging (but soon to come down), and that's the last of the self-promos for this post, I promise.

Last Friday, I posted a screen shot of my blog on Flickr, with the hopeful request of increasing traffic here on photosteph, and guess what?! It turns out people really are reading! Thanks to all of you who came over for a web visit! You made my day. As an incentive to visit my blog, I offered a free Polaroid print to a lucky commenter on my previous post, and just now, I put all the names in my favorite striped Pistil beanie and drew one out and the winner is... Donna G! I'll be sending her a print very soon.

Oh, and if you're wondering about the photo above, I made it a long time ago at work and just never posted it. I felt it fitting, what with all my shenanigans and goings-ons.

LOVE the plastic landscape series.. are they all done with a Holga / Diana ? Unfortunately, it is about 3000 miles for me to come and see it, although I wish I could. No plastic photos shows in Maine !
