I take the show on the road and visit with artists Ed Hill and Suzanne Bloom, who have worked collaboratively under the name MANUAL since 1974. They have a new body of work on display at Moody Gallery titled Raising Nature. The exhibition, held concurrently with the Fotofest 2016 Biennial, has the artists directing their attention outdoors, reflecting on trees and their significance to the world we inhabit. Read More
My friend Vinod Hopson of Fotofest International stops by to chat about the upcoming Biennial and to discuss all that goes into putting on such an expansive event. Six weeks of Biennial programming kicks off March 11th. He also talks about being a recent recipient of an Idea Fund grant and what his plans are for the project. (Hint: It involves cartography and bus tours!) Lastly, we get into an impromptu conversation about growing older, having friends or loved ones die, and reflecting on our own mortality. It was a personal and inspiring exchange.
