I’ve been a little quiet lately because I’ve been feverishly preparing for the first opening of The Outliers in Baltimore on March 26th, 2012. This, of course, is only the beginning of the work that I hope to continue doing throughout years to come; I’m going back to Tennessee in June to continue photographing. Words can’t even express how much this project has impacted my life, my understanding of the world, and my practice as a photographer.
I hope that if you are in/near Baltimore, you’ll join me for the opening reception - there will be some pretty delicious food and some pretty great people. The MICA Photography Department will also be announcing the next recipient of the Meyer Fellowship. I’m looking forward to that initial “Oh God” conversation that happens between current Meyer Fellow and newly minted. Last year, 2010 Fellow Kottie Gaydos told me that I was in for “one hell of a year,” and she was right.
