So, "Copa na Copa," takes a look at the Copacabana in a different light. Rather than seeing it as a tourist mecca, these pictures present one of the most traditional neighborhoods of the city (its population is 30% elderly). My pictures show the beach in an ironic and amusing way, portraying its beauty in a way not usually shown on TV. But I also want to reflect on the way Brazilians are living their lives today. How long can the party go on?  

This is an ongoing project.

Last week I left the city to attend a reception at the Albany Institute of History & Art. One of the artists participating was Carolyn Marks Blackwood. When someone asked why did she make her photographs, her art ? The answer spoken very softly was "I need beauty in my life " these very direct, delicate yet  plain spoken words have resonated since they were spoken. For me they have become the idea to get behind, I heard them as a call to arms to defend artists who create for beauty. I feel we need a moment /a movement  away from trying to provoke a time to admit the edgy, dark, commonplace and paranoia is not the only way to define art in the 21st century.

We need to clasp beauty to our hearts and defend it before all of it is destroyed leaving us in despair 

Thank you Carolyn Marks Blackwood for giving humanity a rallying cry.

I  NEED BEAUTY IN MY WORLD

No 19. DOCUMENTARY : THE PHOTO CENTER N.W.

7 days left 
to submit and participate in
DOCUMENTARY
the 19 Annual Juried Competition 
from the PHOTO CENTER NW


 Last year I was the juror for the annual Photo Center NW juried competition this year my duties are being performed by 
Whitney C. Johnson, Director of Photography,The New Yorker.

I had a wonderful time working with the Photo Center NW, they restored my belief in juried shows the work submitted was intriguing and engaging and of a high quality there was a lot of energy.

The Photo Center NW staff were professional and it made the jurying from a distance easier. Jurying is a form of curating so the final selection takes place at the center. I think the best part of it for me was the community spirit among the photographers nation wide and local who support the Center. I fell in loved with Seattle and the Center. Can't wait to see what Whitney C. Johnson choses. 

There is 7 day left to enter please do, one of the best ways to support photography 

Photographic Center Northwest is expanding the conversation on documentary photography and providing a space to experience it through Documentary: 19th Annual Photography Exhibition.
