RED at A.Smith Gallery
A friend of mine just bought this image. She was thinking about another image she had seen on my Pbase site. I asked her to take a look at this one because I like it a lot and I thought she might too. Those eyes, that direct look, and the wonderful face paint. It was pretty dark when I took it during the Day of the Dead celebration. I was afraid that it might end up blurry but the photo angels were there and it turned out okay.
She isn't the only one, besides me, who likes this image. Aline Smithson is the curator for Red at the A.Smith Gallery in Johnson City, Texas. A.Smith Gallery is a wonderful photography gallery but it is has also hung some amazing exhibitions and created a community of photographic artist. It is an honor to be included by Smithson with so many other amazing photographers in this exhibition. Red will be open from April 1 to May 15, with a reception on April 30. If you are in the Austin area, do yourself a favor and go see the exhibition.
