The Georgia Magazine cover story featuring my portraits of Georgia Bulldogs head coach Mark Richt and his lovely wife/water girl Katharyn hit the mailbox today. Great story by Byron McCombs, who also wrote the terrific Zell Miller piece last year.
Check it out, yo!

We've got a fantastic exhibit set for this Fall, in conjunction with Atlanta Celebrates Photography.
ACP is a citywide event which takes place every October, with over 100 photography shows, exhibits, and events. This year, we will be showing our large-format photographs of Vintage Matchbooks at the studio during regular business hours. In addition, The Gallery at Limetree will display more of our matchbooks, plus old bottle caps, crushed cans and miscellaneous debris that I pick up off the street and photograph.
The listing reads:
"Graphic, energetic, large-format photographs of vintage matchbooks, reminiscent of Warhol and Lichtenstein. Art talent tests, Coca-Cola, political entreaties, cheap cigars, electronics degrees, life insurance and vintage Vegas are captured in the miniature poster art of these matchbooks. Now rendered in large format pigment prints, they possess qualities both humorous and unsettling."
The ACP guide will be available throughout the city, and also online at ACPINFO.org

The Greek island of Poros will play host to our photography workshop this coming September. We are very happy to have North Carolinian painter Pamela Jane Rogers acting as an informal "tour guide" for the island. Driven by her passion for knowledge about Greece, Pamela moved to Poros in 1990 and has lived there full time ever since, capturing her vision of the island in beautiful watercolors like the one above. Visit her website here.
Diane Shugart, also a resident of Poros, has written a glowing account of her adopted home island in the June issue of Odyssey:
"Strolling through the narrow, white-washed passages is like being enveloped in a cloud. The brilliance is accented by splashes of red, orange, and fuchsia from hibiscus and bougainvillea plants trailing over balconies and garden walls. It is best not to try to follow a specific route, but to set a general course towards the bright blue clock tower that sits atop the headland’s tallest point. From here, there is an unimpeded view of the mountainous Peloponnese coast that is particularly stunning at sunset. "

What a great Father's Day!
Yesterday, we celebrated Calder's Christening. He's now four months and just a super-chubb. My mom was in town, and we were joined at the church by some of our dearest friends, including the extended Cullen family. (Mike made the great photo of me and The Chubbster.)
To celebrate, we had a little lunch soiree featuring the fabulous gourmet crepes of the Crepe-Master. After dropping mom off at the airport, Kristin and I took the boys to The Grove and had dinner while watching Tiger Woods work his magic at the US Open. Fresh off of knee surgery, he came back to dunk the tie putt at the 72nd hole (and won the playoff the next day). What a star.
I hope all the dad-units had a Happy Father's Day!

While enjoying a little salmon salad for lunch, Kristin discovered this odd little face, made up of some salmon, two pumpkin seeds, and an almond sliver. We got a good laugh, and I felt I should document this ghostly apparition.
It reminds me of a quick story: a potluck party in the mountains, one of the young girls in attendance finds a boiled potato that looks like a head with a face. She proudly shows it to everyone. Our black lab Lucy Luna follows her around for an hour until she sees an opening, then gingerly plucks the potato/head out of the poor girl's hand and swallows it in one GULP! The young lady was devastated. It was hard not to laugh. :-) Luna Dog is a complete nuisance.
