Maine Interiors – Dreams of Home
Website: www.annieclaflin.com/photography/dreams-of-home/

I began making images of my family, our home and the surrounding landscape in Maine over a decade ago. My interior photographs often abstract space, using lines, shapes and light patterns to define the composition. This body of work is motivated by dreams I have about home while I am away. In these dreams, I see only small details of my family’s home, but even the tiniest view of a specific texture or form evokes familiarity and comfort.

These images are dear to me not only because they remind me of home, but also because this home is threatened by erosion of the beach that tenuously supports it. Over the past thirty years, the ocean has crept closer and closer to the home I’ve known all my life. At high tide, waves now lap at the rock wall protecting our house from the sea. At some unknown future date, the pictures I have made of my family’s home will be all I have to remember it. I dream about these interiors moments before a wave floods their surfaces.

The latest from Visual Reportage.

Visual Reportage Workshops “Through their Eyes”  have an exhibition currently on display at the Griffin Museum’s gallery at Digital Silver Imaging in Belmont, MA. The exhibit features work from 11 photographers who have participated in NESOP instructors Glenn Cooper and Michael Hintlian’s Visual Reportage Workshops over the past several years.

Several NESOP grads are featured including: Alainna Chiklis (’09), Nathan Fried-Lipski (’07), Christopher Gagne (’07), Steph Plourde-Simard (’08) and Steve Sangalang (’08). The work features diverse groups of emerging photographers who have traveled to Guatemala and India since 2007 to photograph the people and stories they’ve encountered.

Nathan Fried-Lipski

The show runs through May 27th with an opening reception tomorrow, April 7th. The gallery (11 Brighton St. in Belmont) is open to the public Monday through Friday, 10 AM to 5:30 PM, to mirror Digital Silver’s hours, or by appointment.

 

Amy Hawkes “Furkids”

Amy Hawkes

Amy Hawkes (Class of ’04) is opening with her “Furkids” series tonight at the Fish&Bone (an urban pet purveyor) on Newbury St.  Anyone who knows Amy and her furkid Jaxon is hardly surprised to learn that she has branched into pet photography. Stop by tonight if you can (pets welcome) from 5-7pm or be sure to check out Amy’s work the next time you’re on Newbury St.

Show-Off!

I’m so excited to have finally cracked the code (html code -that is) so that you can have a quick glimpse of our alum’s upcoming shows.  Look to the sidebar on the right!

For the first few postings over there, I have to say I’m impressed to see there are shows in 4 different states.

If you’re a grad and have an upcoming show – send us your information!
