I have photographed many openings but I was really blown away by the art of Marilyn Minter. Her videos were mesmerizing, I could not take my eyes off of them. The way it was produced with the graphic sharpness and interesting colors. It is truly a must see. MOCA of Westport is the perfect place to view art, they have so much to offer the community.
“ There’s this constant distortion that’s happening between all of us…there’s a sense of failure. But at the same time, all of this pleasure.”—Marilyn Minter
Spring Exhibition, Smash, on view to the public from April 2 – June 13, 2021. The exhibition is devoted exclusively to the videos of contemporary artist Marilyn Minter.
David called me to photograph him for his website. He was planning to upgrade his site and also wanted me to photograph his pieces of art so he could sell them online. We picked a nice day because many of his pieces are large and we wanted to get the images taken outside. To have images for social media I now take many more images. But I still always want to tell a story.
For websites or for branding photography, I like to show the viewer what a typical day might be, tell the story.
David is a Westport artist and lives very close to me. I run or bike by his studio almost every day. He sometimes works outside or on the porch and I think his work is amazing!
Living in Connecticut is such a joy. As much as I enjoy Florida or California, I really like having four seasons. The changing light, foliage and colors gives me an opportunity to capture ever changing images. Winter is one of my favorite times of year because of the crisp air and clear nights. I still would like to do a star trail shoot before spring so hopefully I will get that up here too. I will research youtube and other photographers to get an idea of how to pull it off and make it look exciting and fun.
These are a few of the many images that I have taken over the winter. Thank you for looking.
