PhotoAlliance presents a juried photographic competition with winning entries exhibiting work at the SFO Museum located at the San Francisco International Airport and online @ photoalliance.org. My work will be shown in the online exhibition. These images will be displayed as a part of a “slide show” to a live audience at the next PhotoAlliance event.
Home may be where we start or end our day – an actual place or a state of mind. Home might be a feeling carried around as something desired or battled for. Home can include inhabitants, community or any form of like-mindedness.
HOME, will be on view at the SFO Museum May 8–August 14, 2018.
JURY: WINNING IMAGES SELECTED BY
- Tina Barney, Artist
- Thea Traff, Associate Photo Editor, The New Yorker
- Christopher McCall, Director, Pier 24, San Francisco
Back in November I got a scam email from Sarah Blair <[email protected]> and I just got another one from Adam Johnson <[email protected]> so I’m publishing them here as a warning to others. Always google any email address you find suspicious – and be suspicious.
Here’s the scam: The person wants to buy art, sends a check for more than the asking price saying something like they are “sorry her husband had made a terrible mistake and over paid”. They want the artist to cash it and send them the difference. So they get your money with a bad cashier’s check, you owe the bank, and depending on the timing they get your art.
Here’s other online complaints about these “I want to buy your art” scams.
Here’s the text of the first email:
Hope this message finds you well. I saw these creative works on your website and i will like you to get back with more details if they are still available for purchase.
Motion Study #1373 (Hiroo) and Motion Study #4254 (Pompidou)
I will appreciate an urgent reply.
Here’s the text of the second email:
My name is Adam, I found your Work of arts to be appealing. I am very impressed with it and would be interested in purchasing it .
Could you please send your website to me and let me know your available pieces,a price list and payment options . I’m an art lover/collector and I’m collecting for my personal collections.****.I want any art work at the range of $400 to $500.
Notice that i have a shipper already and my method of payment is Check.
Ok, so now in canada they will pay you to NOT be an artist…. or something like that…
Residency for Artists on Hiatus RFAOH is a virtual yet functioning residency available to artists who, for one reason or another, are not currently making or presenting art. The residency will exist in the form of a website, and the resident artists will be selected based on their proposals of “on-hiatus” activities or non-activities through open calls. Selected artists will be represented on the site by a dedicated page on which they may post periodic reports on their endeavours during their residency.
A modest stipend will be awarded to successful applicants ($30 Canadian dollars per month)

A really fun take on similar idea i explore in my Interface series
See the World Differently through Eyebombing… “the best facial recognition software is the human imagination.”
Kim Nielsen and Peter Dam coined the term late last year: “Eyebombing is the act of setting googly eyes on inanimate things in the public space. Ultimately the goal is to humanize the streets, and bring sunshine to people passing by.” Their intentions are contrary to those of traditional tags, which Nielsen and Dam see as “egocentric behavior… using vandalism to [get respect]”; eyebombing is “only about the message itself.”
they mention this great AmEx video in the article too:
I am all about the vertorama. way before iOS got into the game…. But I never used the term before. I have not tried the iOS 6 panorama mode yet but it seems to produce large images so I look forward to trying it out.
So here’s some new places to find my HDR Vertoramas
Some notes from the article:
…Apples new software is also designed to capture vertical panoramas, sometimes called a “vertorama.” These are a bit tricker to capture, since its more natural to pan from left to right than it is to sweep from the ground up particularly if you keep going through a full 240 degrees, requiring a yoga-trained back bend.
and a good suggestion:
…when you browse panoramic images in your iOS photo library, they’re depicted as uniform squares, making them harder to select from.
Comments were fun to read. starting with “Fun, but I’m not sold on the usefulness of vertical panorama”.
Well, if you haven’t noticed, I am sold on it.
That post features a location I’ve been scouting so maybe I’ll knock that one out someday….
