Keeping Me Away: Steven Beckly & Benjamin Bellas In Conversation Keeping Me Away: Steven Beckly & Benjamin Bellas In Conversation

While I was in Calgary, I sat down with Benjamin Bellas, Steven Cottingham, and Su Ying Strang for a conversation about love, loss, sincerity, intimacy, death, among many other things. That conversation, along with installation images, and an exhibition essay by Lindsay Sorell are published in a catalogue for Soft Movements in the Same Direction.

You can purchase a copy by contacting The New Gallery.

You can also read the full conversation here.

Newspace Center for Photography is pleased to announce the exhibition Fresh AiR: Newspace Artist in Residence Exhibition containing a selection of work from the six photographers who were Newspace Artists in Residence from 2012 and 2013.

These photographers were selected for one-month residencies at Newspace Center for Photography during which time they received access to the Newspace facilities and guidance from the staff.  Residents spent their time working on ongoing projects or creating something brand new. This opportunity afforded them the time and space to think and immerse themselves in their own creative process as well as to engage with the Portland photography community. Resident artists also served as a source of inspiration and guidance for the many students and photographers who create and learn at Newspace.

Fresh AiR: Newspace Artist in Residence Publication

To document the work created by these six talented artists, Newspace is happy to announce the release of an accompanying photo-book containing selections from the work of each resident along with an essay by Hannah Frieser. Copies will be available for sale at the Opening Reception and throughout the display of the exhibition. The publication is part of the Indie Photobook Library.

Daily Life Storage is a series of limited edition portfolios and other projects generating an ongoing and admittedly peculiar archive centered around queer creativity. As the collection expands it rests somewhere between art, scrotums, piss and kinkos. To launch each new release, portfolios are available for free to anyone willing to fulfill a given task. After this initial offering, the remaining portfolios are sold at bookstores, book fairs and via this website to help fund future projects.

BUTT 2014 Calendar
Publications / October 6, 2013

I contributed some photographs to the BUTT 2014 Calendar.

This chunky 384-page daily calendar is the same size as your standard issue of BUTT, but it’s over an inch and a half thick and weighs one and a quarter kilos! Every sideways glance, every lusty moment has been rendered in black ink on BUTT’s 100% recycled pink stock, bound to a durable cardboard backing, and then wrapped in a sturdy color cover.
