Lunar New Year Greeting 2015 AND Spring 2015 Update!

Realized I never posted this year's Year of the Sheep Lunar Greeting from February


and now, my Spring Update


So honored to be included in BOTH SIDES OF SUNSET: PHOTOGRAPHING LOS ANGELES, from Metropolis Books/D.A.P., to be premiered at ParisPhotoLA on this coming Saturday, 2 May from 3pm - 4pm.

Come to ParisPhotoLA on Saturday where 50 of the artists (including me!) will participate in a massive book launch & signing at the Glee VIP Room (the New York Backlot on Chicago street).  Books will also be available at the ArtBook/D.A.P. booth and online.

The list of photographers included is long and stellar (below is only the list signing Saturday) and it is a privilege to be among them.

BOTH SIDES OF SUNSET is edited by Jane Brown & Marla Kennedy with an introduction by David Ulin and forward by Ed Ruscha.
My contribution: Two prints from my GRIDLOCK project.

Just returned from the New York City opening of Water to Paper: Paint to Sky, Tyrus Wong's retrospective that traveled from the Walt Disney Family Musem, SF to the Museum of Chinese in America and in which I have ten large prints of Tyrus, his family and community out flying kites at Santa Monica Beach

Lots of wonderful accolades for this so gracious and talented man including an article in the Wall Street Journal (and using my photographs!).
At the New York Historical Society I was able to finally see the installation of my photographs of Tyrus and his kites - the closing panel and in the closing video - in their just closed exhibition: Chinese Americans: Inclusion/Exclusion.  The exhibition is traveling early 2016 to the Oregon Historical Society in Portland, OR.
