Time is short

April 14th, 2008

D20 8301 filtered Time is short And, no, I’m not talking about getting my taxes done. That was done a long time ago and the huge check I had to write this year has already cleared.

But there is a lot going on and not much time to get things done. I’ll be spending next week in New York City photographing a dance company there in rehearsal. I also plan to fit in a shoot with Theda and visits with some other friends. I’m trying to get a small portfolio of my dance photos printed up to take along on this trip. And I need to do some editing on my last shoot with Theda and take her a CD of my selections. There are a couple shoots to do this week too. I’ll probably get most of it done and whatever I don’t finish can wait.

In May I’ll be going back to Ohio University to shoot more dance there. This photo is from the first concert I shot there after I started doing dance photos again. This is Gretchen Ziolek dancing a piece she choreographed called “Kore.”

The trip over to Bloomington for the Kinsey Institute juried show opening was a great time. I finally got to meet Stephen Haynes and Dave Swanson as well as the lovely model Abigail. After the opening Stephen, Dave, Abigail and I had a nice dinner at an Irish pub and then after dinner I walked over to another fine Bloomington establishment for the after party for the opening. I spent the rest of the evening talking with Catherine Johnson-Roehr, the curator of the art collection at the Kinsey Institute, and with other artists who had work in the show.

The show was a bit smaller than I had expected, but as large a show as they could manage in their small gallery space. It was a good collection of high-quality work. A much higher level of quality than the Dirty Show. Lots of very fine art with a range from very erotic to sensual. As usual with this kind of show, my piece seemed to be the most tame piece in the show. I’m ok with that.

I’m already looking forward to next year’s Kinsey show and to a continuing relationship with that fine ground-breaking institution.
