We have moved, and we’re bigger and better than ever! Here’s pictures of our lovely new home now that we’ve settled in. Every inch of this place has that new-car-smell, and we intend on making it last. Come in and check us out. We’re located on West Anderson Lane, and we’re open seven days a week!
Local Celebrity Kirk Tuck (of the Visual Science Labs) and ATMTX Photo Blog gave us serious props. Go here to check it out!
Good morning all! Welcome back to another week of crazy Texas weather. Due to our move last week, the Macro Monday submission got lost in the workload, so I’m posting it today. Last week’s submission was TRICKY…but someone actually got it. In the spirit of the up-and-coming SXSW musical festival (which kicks off this weekend) last week’s post was a photo of a tattoo in the healing process. The winner guessed “tattoo” and by Jove, that’s good enough for me. I hope to see you out and about as the Interactive portion of South-By gets going this Friday night. I’ll be out with my macro lens and a tallboy, getting primed for the ensuing madness. Be safe and Happy Hunting!
Now, can you guess this week’s submission?
On the 11th of this coming April, the Austin Center for Photography will be hosting legendary Magnum photographer and all-around Renaissance man Larry Towell in the auditorium at the Belo Center for New Media. Towell, who is an accomplished musician and published poet, will be performing a mixed-media event alongside fellow musician Mike Stevens, combining Towell’s work in photography, music, and spoken word for all of Austin to enjoy.
For those of you not familiar with his work, Larry Towell’s photo essays have appeared in The New York Times, Life, Rolling Stone, and other magazines, and he has published over a dozen books. Focusing on the themes of landlessness and identity, he has photographed the Contra war in Nicaragua, the civil war in El Salvador, relatives of the disappeared in Guatemala, and American Vietnam War veterans who worked to rebuild Vietnam. Most recently, he has documented the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, Mennonite migrant workers in Mexico, and his family farm in southern Ontario.
For more information, please go to ACP’s website (visitacp.org/) or Larry’s website (http://larrytowell.com/).
Good morning everyone. This week’s submission is a little easier than the last, since no one guessed last Monday’s macro shot correctly. What is it you’re looking at?
If I get more guesses this week, I’ll start opening this as a forum so that you too can submit your work! Have a great week, and I’ll meet you back here next Monday. Happy Hunting!
