I am pre-selling my first monograph through Kickstarter: Singular Beauty (Summer 2012) The book is being designed and published by Hans Gremmen, co-founder of Fw:, a platform for Dutch Contemporary Photography.
If you pre-buy the book through Kickstarter (for a pledge of $45 +) you will receive your book delivered before it is available to the general public. And every single person who supports Singular Beauty will have their name listed in the final publication. Read more about other rewards and the book on my project page.
Kickstarter is an ALL or NOTHING funding model and I only have until Jan. 20th, 2012 too make a big goal. I know things are tough out there for a lot of us, so whether you can spare $1, $5, $25, $45 or $500, every pledge helps! There are rewards for every amount.

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!
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!
Here is part of the reason I have been MIA from blogging. My first solo show will run from August 17th – October 10th, 2009 at the Suffolk University Art Gallery. I hope those of you in the Boston area can make it to the opening on September 17th. Needless to say, I can’t wait to see the work on the wall in a finished installation.

It has been great to see a growing contemporary art scene in my hometown of Detroit. The Contemporary Art Institute of Detroit, CAID, is still developing a program, but they just launched their first online exhibit, Contact. I am happy to have work from my UV project included.

I feel like I ate this whole picture… If you have a chance I highly recommend Sharon’s current show which is open until 12/6 at Yancey Richardson. Her new work is jaw droppingly beautiful!
