I was invited to participate in a photography show at Low Life Gallery in Cleveland, OH called This is Cleveland- All the Stuff I See. It opens on June 12th and will also be up for the Waterloo Festival on June 27th.
The concept is:
30 people were given disposable cameras with 27 exposures to document their Cleveland over a 14 day period.
The photographs were developed and a small exhibit committee selected the 16 best photos from each person.
The first time the photographers will see their work will be at the opening night reception.
The photographers include:
Dave Desimone (Low Life)
Genna P. (Messy Magazine)
Leigh Ring (Pink Eye)
The Sign Guy
Miss "Carol" Firecracker
Leigh (Afternoon Naps)
Chris (Grays Auction)
Ray (the Helper T Cells)
Ryann Guitar Anderson

I have an on going series of photographs that started in 2002 when I moved from Portland,OR to Cleveland,OH. I shot photos of my mannequin at vantage points along the road throughout the trip across the country. I bought the mannequin in 1991 at Antiques in the Bank in Ohio City and it has managed to be one of the few items I have kept over the years. I repaint it every so often but certain areas have always remained the same.
This is it in 2002:
Devils Slide, Utah
Pony Express- Gothenberg, Nebraska
For some of my pictures for the show, I drove around town with my pal Phoebe who is also a photographer in the project. The mannequin modeled in all of my photos like a tourist in the city. It was tons o fun and I can't wait to see how they turned out. I am also happy that my main cat Bill Rupnik is in the show and hope his cat Spike's mysterious kitty boo boo gets better.
Here are a couple more things that fascinated me today
Can someone tell me why the word hot is in quotes? It's either hot or it's not.
I also saw this on a box of art at work today
It is the most interesting spelling of the word frame I have ever seen.
