A life, pocket cameras, and a studio practice.
Posting twice a week and sometimes more!
Wednesday, October 24, 2007
Well, we thought it was time to start a blog, to follow our travels and maybe post a picture of the day. The "we" is Kurt Hoss and Susan Shaw. We make photographic artist's books and more. So I guess this will be an art and photography blog. We're planning a trip soon to Louisiana to photograph Cajun musicians, sugar cane harvest and birds along the gulf. It will be interesting to post along the way and see how that feels.
Today's photo is of some of the CDs we've been trying to archive. I think we've taken over half a million pictures in the past few years. Words of advice: Cds will deteriorate and remember that if you use a lot of different cameras that you may have duplicate numbering on different images.
I also hope this blog will be funny. I don't think either of us has gotten through the day without seeing something to laugh about.
Susan Shaw is an internationally exhibited painter and photographer. Private and public collections include the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Shaw is the recipient of two New York State Artist’s Fellowships and 2007/2009 residency fellowships at the Vermont Studio Center.
Kurt Hoss is a freelance photographer capturing the exuberance of
New York City for 35 years. A favorite project has been documenting life in south western Louisiana, culminating in two recent books, Going to Lafayette and Bosco Swamp.
Shaw and Hoss recently received an AVA gold award for video production, as producers of The Mermaid Parade.
