Student Work from Grace

Grace was also in my Fall 2016 Teen Photography Club.  If I recall, she was sent to class so she could "become her family's personal photographer."  No pressure, Grace, no pressure at all.  :) 

I think you are going to do juuuuuust fine!

Two Postcards

Two Postcards Project on The Kindred Art by Dena Robles and Alpana Aras

Earlier this year I started a collaboration between photo artists around the world called The Kindred Art.  One project is titled "Two Postcards."  The postcard on the left is submitted by one photographer and then picked up by a second photographer in order to gain inspiration and create a 2nd postcard.  The idea is that our artwork has more than one audience.  As a creator of the photograph a) we have a relationship with what we see in front of us, b)many times with a living subject, and c) always with a viewer.  We cannot always control how our capture is perceived by our audience. This is an exercise in learning how our photograph is viewed and used as an inspiration to our viewer.

On the left is "Rickshaw in Delhi" from Alpana Aras, on the right is "Red  Bicycle in Michigan" by me.
