Ray passed away over a year and a half ago. This is the first year without an anticipated trip out to California to see Ray or in honor of him in some way. I don’t know why, but the realization hit me harder today than it did when I left his house for the very last time in October. Reading his essays is almost like having him back here for a fleeting moment. I can hear every pause, every booming laugh and every emphasis he would give the stories, as if he were telling them directly to me. And something about that is so pure and so beautiful.

This is the last week to catch “Papabear” at Soho Photo Gallery, 15 White Street, New York, NY.

This has been the most incredible experience. Thank you so much to everyone who made the trip to see the show, near and far. It really means the world to me. Looking forward to the next one 😉

Say hello to #papabearalbright. Last month I applied to be a member of the co-op photography gallery, Soho Photo. This month I applied for my first show and was approved for a show in March showing my thesis project Papabear. Papabear is a collection of images depicting my unique relationship with my father and printed entirely in platinum/palladium. The exhibit opens March 4, 2014 at Soho Photo (15 White St, New York, NY) and will be up for the whole month. I hope you’ll all come out! (at Soho Photo Gallery)
