Bright, Bright Day is both a small edition book and a collection of text/image collages. Inspired by my interest in Hindu/Buddhist philosophy, this work is a visual diary documenting some major life changes. The exhibition will be on view at Artist Alley from February 11-March 11.

On Thursday February 16th from 2-3:30, I will be sharing some of my work from Indonesia in the Cornell Rare and Manuscript Collections, Kroch Library. This lecture coincides with the release of my book, A History of Photography in Indonesia: From the Colonial Era to the Digital Age, and will focus on collections held at Cornell that are included in the book. The event is free and open to the public. Specific details about time and location below.
Inspired by Wisconsin Death Trip, the cult classic book by Michael Lesy, Magnum photographer Alessandra Sanguinetti's newest book Some Say Ice provides a beautiful yet harsh look at the culture of interior American. Published by MACK Books, my review of it was published by Photo Eye and is available here.
Together with musician Chris Miller and movement artist Julie Nathanielsz, I am presenting some of my work from Indonesia at the The Cherry Studio Space (located on the bottom floor of Arthaus!). This event will include photographs, films, talks, and performance, each of sharing how Indonesia has helped shape our work and self-conceptions as artists.
This event will be held at The Cherry Studio. Entrance is through the main door of Arthaus, and the studio is just to the right as you enter. For any questions please text or email Brian Arnold - 607.382.9646 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
