The Inner Path of Photography

We yearn for the taste of the sacred…and through our cameras discover it, the world, and ourselves.

“Who Takes Credit?” Collaboration Program by Aurora Picture Show Houston tomorrow…

It’s fun to do collaborative projects; I’m drawn to them more and more.

When it comes to showing and promoting the final piece, however, how do you allocate credit?  Some artists may have contributed more time, others more artwork, perhaps another had the original motivating idea.

Tomorrow, Tuesday August 23, at 6:00 PM, Aurora Picture Show, Houston is hosting a “Happy Hour Video Hour with Filmmaker Andrew Lampert,” the subject being “Collaboration as a Means of Control.”

Sounds interesting. See you there?

Film: “Bill Cunningham New York”

Just saw “Bill Cunningham New York” film at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston.

“Bill  Cunningham: the Original Street Fashion Photographer.”

Such a gem of a man…and intriguing. You leave the movie wanting to know more about him, while still overwhelmed with the scope of his work, the history he has lived, and the beauty of his inner personality.

Also made me homesick for a time period in the world that will not be seen again.

Go see it wherever you can!

 

Artist’s Inspiration: Film at the Menil Collection, Houston tonight

It’s important for me to hear/see/experience what other artists are doing….it inspires my own work, giving me new ideas to work with, or reminding me of old ideas that I’ve forgotten. So in that vein…

Tonight the Menil Collection in Houston is showing a film about Braque and Picasso…sounds wonderful…here’s their description:
“In 2007, New York¹s Pace-Wildenstein Gallery owner Arne Glimcher, and gallery director Bernice Rose (now curator of drawings at The Menil Collection), organized an exhibition (and book) that explored the neglected influence of early cinema on Picasso and Braque¹s revolutionary art movement, Cubism. At the Menil Collection, Bernice Rose will introduce the program.”

hmm, pretty dry. Here’s what they put on Facebook!

“Come to the Menil tonight for a FREE film screening of “Picasso and Braque Go to the Movies” and discover the unique impact of film on these artists and their revolutionary art movement, Cubism.”

I like that better 🙂

The Menil is a beautiful space, including the grounds, exhibits, people who run the organization….the program is free…how can you not go?
