I am quite stoked to have one of my color photograms from the "Forms & Records" series accompanying an article in Harper's Magazine's New Books section about the title, "Parental Discretion is Advised: The Rise of N.W.A. and the Dawn of Gangsta Rap" by Gerrick D. Kennedy. Check out the review here:
Very excited to have a piece in re:collection at the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago! Here are some images, much better go see the whole show as it has some great works across multiple spaces in the museum:

Another fine release on cassette from the label Love All Day and my images were inside & out.
Bucket Brigade – Mnemosyne
Cat #: LAD 013 — Year: 2017 — Format: Cassette
Second release from Chicago artist Jacob Kart’s Bucket Brigade project, in which Kart sets up situations via a Eurorack modular synthesizer to manipulate degrees of randomness into fully realized compositions. A mainstay of Chicago’s improvising scene, Kart eschews overdubs on the recording, treating the machine as another intelligence or living organism whose spontaneous emissions can be played off of and interacted with. Though extremely pleasant to listen to, there’s a kind of edge-of-your-seat tension throughout most of these pieces that is located precisely where the pure waves, pattern inducing patches, and cellular logic of the machine meets the intelligence & in-the-moment reactions of an improvising composer. One is reminded of nothing less than the final outcome of one of artist Sol Lewitt’s famous process & system based artworks, in which predetermined outcomes have nevertheless been graced by the vagaries of human intellect & ability.
Very honored to have an image from The Broken Cabinet on the cover of Antennae #40 and a nice Q & A inside, together with many other wonderful talents.

Go see the prints (many more in the box than what is displayed online) and works from many great Midwestern artists at the MPP @ MOCP sometime in person.

Sonnenzimmer, the Chicago based art practice and studio of Nick Butcher and Nadine Nakanishi, was commissioned to further explore, through planar interventions, the destruction of my photographs from the Chemical Alterations series.
I am thrilled to be featured on Collier Brown and 21st Editions The Od Review blog!
Here is an excerpt:
“And while I know the best results are usually found in the tension between representation and abstraction, my mind is still pulled toward complete obliteration,” says Doug Fogelson.
Fogelson’s reflections recall for me a line from Wallace Stevens’ “Sunday Morning,” where death “strews the leaves / of sure obliteration on our paths,” and yet, she “makes the willows shiver in the sun / For maidens who were wont to sit and gaze / Upon the grass.”
I’m no maiden, alas—but do I sit and gaze at these photographs as if they were willows shivering in the sun? Yes I do. Yes I did. Yes I will.
I recently attended a weekend retreat gathering in the UK for the followers of Dark Mountain. It was quite an interesting time, read my recap here:
I was happy to be a Rule Breaker and loved the words from Kyohei Abe, who is the Executive Director of the Detroit Center for Contemporary Photography and a cool photographer himself.
