"Shooting Japan" Article
I've posted a new article about my choices for equipment on an extended shooting trip to Japan - here's the link to the story.
News at the Gallery
The Albuquerque Photographers' Gallery has been honored to present the unique photographic works of internationally renowned artist Karl P. Koenig since 2012. The Gallery will be celebrating Karl with a retrospective reception, “An Evening for Karl”, on March 2, 2019, from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m., at the Gallery in Old Town, 303 Romero St. NW, upstairs in Suite N208.
We will be displaying the amazing scope of Karl's work, including images that have not been on display at the Gallery. Karl's widow, Frances, will be present and will discuss his work during the reception.
Karl's photographs graced the covers of more photo magazines than any living photographer. He invented the gumoil printing process in 1990 and his resulting prints, each of which took days or weeks to make, are magical and breathtaking. I've been helping to prepare quite a few prints for display, and they truly are wonderful!
In addition, we will be showing many of Karl's richly detailed photogravures. Those images span the breadth of Karl's interests—trees, winter farms, New Mexico scenes, architectural details, odd (often overlooked) conjunctions and an occasional quirky view of the world.
For a number of the prints which will be on display at the reception, we obtained the original photograph from which the print was made, and the photograph will accompany a purchase of the print, making a unique set.
Light refreshments will be served at the reception- hope to see you there!
Wupatki National Monument is tucked between the Painted Desert and ponderosa highlands of northern Arizona, and was home to numerous groups of people—Northern Sinagua, Cohonina, Kayenta, and Hohokam—over thousands of years. The Monument preserves dozens of ancestral Puebloan villages. The Wupayki Pueblo captured in the image above is the largest of the six pueblos preserved in the Monument. It is well worth making part of your exploration of the Four Corners.
