There is a new interview with me published in the Ithaca Times! It's about my new book with OUP - please take a look!
I try hard to keep busy and to keep making new pictures. The photographs here aren't new, but were just completed last week. Both are from Indonesia, 2014. This picture above is an agricultural burn just outside Yogyakarta in Central Java - a silver gelatin print toned with selenium and Lipton tea. The picture below is from Bandung, taken outside the Lawangwangi Art Space in the hills above the city.
In collaboration with Yogyakarta based curator Alia Swastika, I am organized a two-night screening of contemporary film and video art from Java. The screening will first be held at the Johnson Museum of Art at Cornell University on Thursday, April 20th at 5:15, and then a second time at the Colorado College on Wednesday, April 26th. Please contact me for more information!
The book I published with Afterhours Books and Cornell University is now being sold at Photo Eye in Santa Fe.
There is a nice review of my exhibition at the Johnson Museum of Art written up in the Ithaca Times.
I was recently invited to participate in a new online catalog of artists who've participated in the MacDowell Colony residencies. Link to my page here.
My book, Identity Crisis: Reflections on Public and Private Life in Contemporary Javanese Photography, is now ready for order. Anyone in Indonesia or Southeast Asia should visit the Afterhours website. All others can get a copy by visiting the Johnson Museum of Art, or by contacting me directly.
My exhibition with the Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art at Cornell University is currently on view. The show is up from January-June 2017.
My book with Oxford University Press should be coming out soon, some time next month. Please check back soon for more information!
