"waterbabies" exhibition at Arthaus66 USA






8 images of children playing underwater in a summer pool in northern Italy will be showing at the Arthaus66 gallery New Mexico Arthaus66 found on the infamous Route 66

i spent several days lurking around in dive gear underwater in the summer of 2006 photographing waterbabies at play... i love the feeling of the giant quiet underwater room

the series is black and white , printed on Hahnemuhle photo rag paper ... limited edition print run of 25 of each image, matted with a chalk colour, acid free archival museum quality board and framed in a pale maple.

the finished and framed images are approx 23x32 inches (58 x 81cm)

image size approx 13x20 inches (33 x 50.8cm)

show opens June 2009 and runs through August

the gallery will also be showing unframed 6 other of my works from the "100 years sleep series" these are printed on a new medium which is a metallic photo plastic ...super high end emulsion that i have just been introduced to by a fantastic lab in Nevada

these prints will be a limited edition run of 7 of each image printed at 30x40cm

I hope the exhibition will be a success, it's a hard job to set one up. I couldn't help myself thinking that those red roses in your 100 years sleep series look so much like Inger's felted work! How come?!

I love those underwater captures Frances .. I can hear the quiet and then the occasional 'ping' noise .. how amazing to have spent that time photographing those kids! The pools look SO big and clear and fresh! I'm well impressed .. i've always wanted to go on Route 66 .. man, life is a highway girl!

hugs and kisses xoxoxo
