Catching Up

Nothing posted on "Aloud" since the New Year but busy on my other blogs and in real life.

In January, I was honored to create a "flip book" and documentary photograph of the incredible centenarian, Tyrus Wong, to exhibit at the Getty sponsored Pacific Standard Time (PST) exhibition at the Vincent Price ArtMuseum in Los Angeles, 'ROUND THE CLOCK: CHINESE AMERICAN ARTISTS WORKING IN LA. This is a beautiful exhibition curated by my friend and incredible independent curator, Sonia Mak. A photograph of mine is also in the exhibition catalogue.
Late January: gathering experiences and imagery for my annual Chinese Lunar New Year Greeting, The Year of the Water Dragon

And to make January (my birthday month) even more exciting: news on that day - while wandering yet another of the incredible ArtFairs in LA in January - that the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) has proposed acquiring one of my photographs, Ming's Cafe, from the FINDING CHINATOWN long-term project! More on this at my FINDING CHINATOWN blog.

February: In Group Exhibition at Morono Kiang Gallery, downtown Los Angeles. Images of the '80s, a fun re-exploration for me at a time of my life when I was switching careers and starting a family which resulted in closing my wet darkroom and my life in B&W. From the show: FARAWAY, SO CLOSE

Soon to open in mid-March in Fremantle, Western Australia, a group exhibition showcasing some work of mine on the LA Harbor in the FOTOFREO Biennial, one of the noted photography festivals of the AsianPacific rim. The show, DIVERGENCE, at FOTOFREO/FRINGE in Fremantle, W. Australia, opening 17 March. Reception: the 14th sponsored by FORM at the Midland Atelier.

One image from my work to be exhibited (along with that of fellow photographer, Martin Cox):

On to more news as several projects are taking shape for the Spring!
