So, it has been an exciting week for me. First, the interview in Clare O'Neill's Photo Encaustic blog. And now this: a 14-page feature plus the cover photo for Adore Noir magazine. Adore Noir is a fine art black-and-white photography magazine for digital devices—one that I devour each time I get my hands on an issue. The feature includes many images from the series, A Bowing Acquaintance With Plants, along with an interview about the series and how I got started in photography which, of course, means it goes way back. My favorite part? The way Executive Editor Sandra Djak Kovacs describes "the dance of the plants:" in my images:
...they bow, they whisper and they twirl from the screen, inviting you to a whole new world."
One of the nice things about Adore Noir is that it is digital. You can order a single copy at an affordable price ($3.99) and download it immediately to your desktop. But what really makes it great are the photos. Each issue is filled with a diverse mix of images—from documentary to landscape to portraits to conceptual. They also have a very active facebook page, with new images (often several) posted every day.
Anyhow, I'd like to say thanks to Chris Kovak, the editor of Adore Noir for publishing my work. He made this experience a fun one.
