I'm just going through my shoot for the Araki show that was at the Museum of Sex earlier this year. One of my new year's goal is to try and edit at least half of the 100,000+ photos I've been sitting on from 2013 to present day. (The last week I've gone through about 500 - 600 photos.)

This one is from their non-Araki exhibition that was there at that time. Very tough shooting handheld, available light with a fisheye there. Lens is a slow f5.6 to start with, then adapted it is even slower. (What does that make it...f/8? f/11?) Whatever it is I have to shoot wide open, so sharpness and DOF suffer. Then they have dark and contrasty lighting.

PS...don't ask me what the art is. I do like Ellliot Erwitt when he said "I just take photos and hope something comes of it."

I hate recording stuff like text and seldom read anything. I'm the classic...'I just look at the photos' type of person...but I do bring home the GD photos.

A.D. Coleman can do the reading. I will stick with the button pushing.

A.D. Coleman was escorted, kicking and screaming, out of the room a long time ago.

Where was that at? I don't doubt it. He kicked me off his blog awhile back. You have to kiss his ass or you are out.

He is very smart, but I think his personality kept him from advancing to a big name museum / positions. I'm not an expert on him but I think the Village Voice even let him go.

Don't know anything about East Coast kissing-of-asses or any continued significance of Village Voice but I do know many on the West Coast thought him behind the eight ball...irrelevant. "Big name museums" don't drive photography, they stage shows...which is kinda unlikely in digital reality.. I love MOMA but it's inherently antiquated.

While editing my photos for this shoot I found a photo of the exhibit card for this sculpture. It was done in 2016 by Shona McAndrew and is called 'Norah' from 'The Female Gaze' show.

I've been working on editing the Araki show shoot. Shot 350+ photos for Araki. Will break it down into a few digestible posts. Also have photos of his first Xeroxed book he mailed to people picked at random out of the phonebook.
