Hope You Can Come

I am thrilled to be included in the upcoming group show, Versus at Hous Projects.  Even more exciting for me, it is curated by Ruben Natal San-Miguel, who is pretty much everywhere these days, not only as a curator but as an artist. He has been an unbelieveable supporter of my work and he has so much for enthusiasm for photography you cannot help but carried along with him.  Also I had the pleasure of meeting the lovely Elizabeth Houston of Hous Projects in Miami, and I am super impressed by the group of artists she and Ruben have managed to pull together for this exhibit. Click below to what is in store. The opening is Jan 7th from 6 – 10 pm at Hous Projects, 31 Howard St, 2nd Fl.  Hope to see you there and Happy New Year!

I am looking for a long-term intern for 3 upcoming projects.  The first requires a great deal of organization skill and can be done on your own time, the second is production help for several upcoming shows, and the third requires research and contacting companies on my behalf for an upcoming project. I worked for many years as an intern so I am very understanding about the value of your time, however, I need someone who can commit 1 – 6 hours per week off site to work for the next two months. After that the schedule will be more varied. There is a chance if you are so inclined to also be involved in some of my other curatorial and  photo projects. Please mention in the email if you interested in writing or WIPNYC.  The internship is currently un-paid, however, I am happy to share my time and energy to help you on your artistic path in any way I able to do so.

Please send you resume, references and a short cover letter to caraphi@gmail.com

Thank you!

Two Women Not To Be Missed

I was thrilled to see one of my most influential photo mentors, Penelope Umbrico featured in the current issue of FOAM.  Not only is she an orginal and amazing artist, she has also taught some of the most talented artist’s I know at various institutions around New York.  Truthfully, I do not think my work would be half of what it is without her influence, and she really supported me at a time when I needed it most.  So I encourage you to pick up this issue. Her career has really kicked into overdrive (long overdue if you ask me) since her “Flickr Suns” installation piece was featured at the first NY Photo Festival. It was my favorite thing in that show, more of her work can be seen at her website.

And my partner in WIPNYC crime, Amy Elkins this Sat at the Carnegie Art Museum. If you are in Southern, CA, you should check it out.


Carnegie Art Museum is located at 424 South C Street in Oxnard, California. The opening public reception is from 4 to 7 pm on Saturday, December 12. The show runs through December to February 21.
