Thank you to the Colorado Photographic Arts Center for including my image "Farview" in their 2018 calendar. I'm in great company with Marcus DiSieno, Matthew Swarts, Cody Bratt, Jess T Dugan, Thomas Carr, Anne Leighton Massoni, David Bowman, Parker Reinecker, Maureen Drennan, Daniel W Coburn, Sherri Lynn Beth, and Terry Ratzlaff.
I'm very excited to have my piece "Go with the Flow" selected by juror Tim Anderson for the SE Center for Photography's latest exhibition, Open. It looks to be a really diverse show with work from 32 photographers.
Last weekend I had the opportunity to give a lecture at the Las Cruces Museum of Art in conjunction with their exhibition Art in the Detail: 20th Century Masters of Photography (from the Syracuse University Collection). I was excited to talk about the featured images and photographers (Bernice Abbott, Aaron Siskind, Wynn Bullock, Imogen Cunningham, to name a few) in more detail, looking specifically at process, technique and composition. I gave a very abbreviated history of photography leading up to celluloid film and silver gelatin printing; the common threads in methods of capture and print amongst the photographers. I shared some of my favorite items from my personal photo collection of Daguerreotypes, Ambrotypes, carte de visites, and more, and I also had the opportunity to lead a demo on lighting and closeup photography. We covered a lot of ground in two hours and I am so grateful to LeeAnn for coordinating the event, and to the participants for their energy and interest.
The amazing Mieke from Gallery 19 interviewed me for their ongoing series "Articulate." We talk about my motivations for my projects A House, A Home and Volley. Feel free to check it out!
I'm very grateful to Dana Stirling and Yoav Friedlander for the feature in Float Magazine. I have long admired Float and the work that they support and am very excited for the opportunity to show my work on their site. I will be taking over Float's Instagram in July so stay tuned!
I am very excited to curate the upcoming call, "Nothing Special" for L.A. Photo Curator. Submissions are open now through July 8th at midnight PST.
Lamb says, "From the spontaneity and unpredictability of street photography to the artfully crafted still life to the happenstance urbanscape and far beyond, photographers have long been able to create powerful, beautiful work drawing from the banality of everyday life.
How do you make something compelling out of nothing special? This question has become compounded as the ubiquity of image-making and image-sharing has reached an all-time peak and is steadily growing through various social media outlets. In a time when we are sharing, “liking,” and viewing more images than ever, how are you seeing and capturing the world around you?
This call is looking for well-seen images of the everyday - the benign, the boring, the overlooked. I’m curious as to how you view the world, and in particular how you capture the subtle, in-between moments, people and spaces that are such a large part of our daily lives. Whether found, staged, or manipulated, all subject matter and methods of capture are welcome."
20% of all artist fees go to two charities a month. They're split between the curator's favorite charity and the first place winner's favorite charity.
Lamb has chosen the Union of Concerned Scientists for her charity (Practical solutions to some of our planet’s most pressing problems—from combating global warming and developing sustainable ways to feed, power, and transport ourselves, to fighting misinformation, advancing racial equity, and reducing the threat of nuclear war).
