After a brutal experience hanging 32 pieces of mine yesterday, some of my photographs will be on display at a student show at the Straube Center for the next month and a half. Forever linked to nature, these images represent three different series, "Living in Malaysia," "Collecting Raindrops," and "The Frog Pond." The opening reception is tonight, May 7th, from 7 - 9 pm in Pennington, New Jersey. Although other half of Daughter Earth, Katy, can't be there, she has had the experience with me in most of these photographs, "Gabili's Smile," being her favorite.
Both Kate and I, along with another fellow traveler, were with our favorite jungle expert, Gabili, on a night trek. We were all determined to find a tarsier, knowing very well if anyone could find one for us it would be Gabili. The trek went on for awhile, and we saw a ton, but were on our way out when we all saw Gabili's smile - we knew he had found a tarsier. This little critter was absolutely adorable and not as timid as I was expecting. With the small size I would have thought it would have instantly leaped away, but I was able to take some beautiful portraits of him before he disappeared in the jungle.
