I have mentioned many times before how circular my photo-land journey has been. For instance, my work is currently in a show at Hous Projects, with Amy Elkins, my co-creator of Women in Photography, with Jen Davis, who I have obsessively admired since I saw her work in Aperture during school, with Brian Ulrich who was one of the first artists I reached out to when I got out of school and who has been an amazing help to me, and with Eric Ogden who was one of our most important clients at the photo lab I worked at while I was studying. It means so much to me to be in a show with artists I admire (I mean I am on the wall with Hank Willis Thomas!) especially when so many of them were a part of my life before I even had a glimmer of a career of my own. It was also fitting that the show was curated by Ruben Natal-San Miguel, who was the first person to ever buy my work and who has been my best cheerleader ever since.
So I am so pleased to now have the chance to share the news of Ruben’s debut New York exhibition at Kris Graves Projects:
RUBEN NATAL-SAN MIGUEL
NY, NY: Concrete Jungle
March 4th through April 10th, 2010
An opening reception of these works will be held on Thursday, March 4th, from 6:00-9:00pm
And to continue the tradition, I have known Greg Miller for many years and had the pleasure of working at Redux Pictures many years ago when they hosted an exhibition of his Italy work. I thrilled for them both and look forward to seeing the show. Hope you all can find time during art fair madness to make it to the exhibit, I am sure it will be worth it.

Become an Ultraviolet Beauty | March 3rd | 3-9pm
I am very excited to announce that AUREUS Contemporary will be showing my Ultraviolet Beauties work at Scope NY. They will be hosting an artist project in conjunction with Scope at the VIP preview of the fair on March 3rd. Please contact the gallery to set up your UV portrait commission:
In conjunction with the exhibition of Ultraviolet Beauties at our booth, Cara Philips will set up her UV studio and offer collectors the unique chance to get a commissioned Ultraviolet portrait of themselves or a loved one on SCOPE Opening Day. Portrait shots can be arranged directly on location at the photo studio in the SCOPE Lounge or at the Aureus Contemporary Booth (D14). This is an opportunity that will not be repeated again after the SCOPE fair. So please contact us to make arrangements for your portrait commission!
