Another Print on the Wall

New Mexico Nude, 1997, #1

I found out a few days ago that one of my photos has been selected to be part of an exhibition right here in New York City.  The photo, “New Mexico Nude, 1997, #1,” was chosen to be exhibited in the Patterns and Shadows 2017 show, sponsored by the New York Center for Photographic Art (NYC4PA).  The juror was Stephen Perloff, editor of The Photo Review.
I don’t know how many images were selected, but the e-mail notice said that over 1,100 images were submitted, so I’m happy that one of mine was chosen.
The exhibition will be up from April 3 to April 14, 2018, at the Jadite Gallery, 413 West 50 Street in Manhattan.  The opening reception will be held on April 5 from 6 pm to 8 pm.
As for the photograph itself, it was made at a workshop at a ranch about an hour’s drive outside of Santa Fe, in just my third year of photographing art nudes.  I had a few minutes left to photograph the model, and as I liked the shadows coming across that were cast by the wooden railings, I asked her to lie down so that the shadows created a pattern across her figure.
I still consider this to be one of my “signature” images.  It’s hard to believe that I made it 20 years ago.
