Dr. John Bennett for Capital Magazine

c1_CAP0114

I photographed Dr. John Bennett of the Capital District Physician’s Health Plan (CDPHP) in Albany, New York for Capital Magazine back in December. Using a simple gray wall as a background, I side lit him using two monolights inside strip softboxes coming in from camera right and left, even with the subject.

Pane in Empty Rooms 7″x7″ Exhibition Book

The Pane in Empty Rooms 7-inch exhibition book

BJS-20140219-115310-2548-Edit

The book features twenty-six toned black and white images over twenty-eight pages, comes with a written introduction, and is signed on the title page.

Due to popular demand, I’ve designed a 7-inch version of The Pane in Empty Rooms exhibition book. The original 12-inch version, which I released as a bonus for customers who purchased larger prints, was too expensive to print to offer at a reasonable retail price.

The new, intimately sized 7-inch book is identical to the larger book in every way:

  • 26 toned black and white images on 28 pages
  • Introduction written by the photographer
  • Signed on the title page
  • Printed by Blurb™ using their highest quality papers
  • $35 plus Shipping and Handling via USPS Priority Mail. Customers outside of the continental United States please contact me for a customized shipping quote.

COVER STORY FOR MIDDLEBURY MAGAZINE

The Winter 2014 issue of Middlebury Magazine features my cover story The Call of the Wild where I followed a group of Middlebury College student hunters at the start of the 2013 deer hunting season. You can view a large selection of images from the assignment in the archive.

Thanks to student hunters Alexander Cort, Lauren Honican, Myles Kamisher-Koch, Katherine McFarren, and John Montgomery for their help with this assignment.

Technical Information

I photographed the cover shot with a Nikon D800 and Nikkor 17-35mm ƒ/2.8 AF-S lens. I stood on my Pelican case to gain a little altitude and illuminated the hunters with an Einstein monolight and Vagabond battery pack in a bare reflector.

The Apple Pickers

The Apple Pickers. Click the image above to view the portfolio.

I’ve posted a new portfolio titled The Apple Pickers to this website. I made this set of images in the Summer and Fall of 2013 at Sunrise Orchards in Cornwall, Vermont. Here’s a bit from the introduction:

The Hodges family has been growing apples at Sunrise Orchards since 1974, and all that time they’ve hired The Men to help with the monumental task of harvesting 200 acres of apples. The Men are all Jamaican, and each year they travel to Cornwall and make themselves a temporary home in the bunkhouses of Sunrise.

Enjoy the images, and as always, I’d love to hear your feedback.

It’s a Wrap!

Closing Reception at VCPMy exhibition The Pane in Empty Rooms at the Vermont Center for Photography closed last night with a wonderful reception. Thanks to everyone who came out to view the work and for all of your kind comments. Thanks also to Gallery Director Joshua Farr and VCP board member Al Karevy for their hard work and support. Without them the show would not have been such a success.

I’ve got a few things in development for this exhibition, including a smaller seven-inch coffee table book that I hope to have ready to offer soon. If you’re interested in being notified when this book becomes available, sign up for my newsletter or send me an email.

I’m actively looking for additional venues to show these images. Until then, the next scheduled show is at Middlebury’s Jackson Gallery in July.

The Pane in Empty Rooms Exhibition Book Offer

The Pane in Empty Rooms exhibition book

The Pane in Empty Rooms 12 inch x 12 inch hardcover exhibition book

The Pane in Empty Rooms exhibition book

The book features twenty-six toned black and white images over twenty-eight pages, comes with a written introduction, and is signed on the title page.

As part of my Kickstarter project to launch The Pane in Empty Rooms exhibition, I offered 8 inch x 10 inch softcover books featuring all of the images of the portfolio as a reward. I had the book printed by Blurb using their professional quality, luster-finish photographic papers. The book was so popular that I’ve designed another version of it as a larger 12 inch x 12 inch hardcover.

Unfortunately, a small print run of such a large book on high-end paper makes the book very expensive — there’s little chance I could recoup my costs offering them at a reasonable retail price. Instead, I’ve decided to offer them as way of saying “Thanks!” to those who buy large prints from the exhibition.

Buy a Big Print, Get a Book for Free

For the duration of my exhibition at the Vermont Center for Photography (January 3 – February 2, 2014) the first five people who buy prints sized 24 inches x 30 inches or larger will receive one of these beautiful hardcover books as a thank you gift*. The book features 26 images on 28 pages, comes with an written introduction to the portfolio, and is signed on the title page.

You can shop for prints from this exhibition by visiting The Pane in Empty Rooms image archive. A 24×30 inch print can be had for $650 $550; a 30×38 inch print is $850 $650. Each photograph is printed on fine art quality archival papers and is signed and titled on the back.

Thanks very much for all of your support, and I hope you get a chance to visit the exhibition at VCP in Brattleboro.

*One book per print sold, please. Limited to the first five sales from January 10, 2014 to February 2, 2014.
